5 foods that will make your farts stink and smell bad

Health, according to the World Health Organization, is “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease and infirmity”.[1] A variety of definitions have been used for different purposes over time. Health can be promoted by encouraging healthful activities, such as regular physical exercise and adequate sleep,[2] and by reducing or avoiding unhealthful activities or situations, such as smoking or excessive stress. Some factors affecting health are due to individual choices, such as whether to engage in a high-risk behavior, while others are due to structural causes, such as whether the society is arranged in a way that makes it easier or harder for people to get necessary healthcare services. Still other factors are beyond both individual and group choices, such as genetic disorders.

Farting is normal, but it is embarrassing too. And these foods are making your farts smelly and stinky.

Whether silent or loud, smelly or largely undetectable, we all fart! It may be stinky, smelly, or even odourless. Breaking wind is a normal part of being a human. But what causes gas though, and just how gassy is too gassy? Well, gas is produced in our body in two ways; through swallowing air and the process of digestion. And this gas exits the body in one out of two ways – through the mouth (burping) or flatulence or farts. 

An average person will pass gas multiple times per day. But sometimes your farts can really make you or others around you cringe their nose in disgust! And that’s when you may ask yourself, “Why do my farts smell so bad?” Well, the smell of your farts is influenced by an array of factors. But the most common factor behind it is your improper digestion and your diet.

On one hand, improper digestion causes the food inside your stomach and intestine to ferment and this causes unpleasant odour and smelly farts. On the other hand, there are certain foods that can make your farts smell bad. Really bad!

HealthShots got in touch with Dr Vipul Rustgi, MBBS MD Medicine, Consultant Physician and Diabetologist, Apollo Spectra, New Delhi, to find out which foods usually cause your farts to stink.

These are the top 5 foods that can make your farts smell bad, says the expert:


1. Broccoli


Love eating broccoli? Well, after all, it is nutritious and loaded with antioxidants. But are you aware that it also contains sulfur compounds in higher quantities that can cause gas. Broccoli is also high in fiber and raffinose that can lead to stinky farts. That does not mean you should completely exclude it from the diet.


2. Cauliflower


Just like broccoli, even cauliflower falls under the category of cruciferous vegetables. This vegetable is also healthy and high in fiber and can lead to gas production and stinky farts due to the presence of raffinose.

4. Onions


Onions can enhance the taste of any food, but they are also associated with stinky farts. They contain fructans that cause bloating and gas and make the farts stinky.


5. Beans


Beans and lentils are jam-packed with fiber, and even raffinose, a complex sugar that is not digested well. It reaches the intestine and results in hydrogen, methane, and even smelly sulfur, causing stinky farts.

So, consume these foods in minimum quantity to avoid smelly farts.
