Everyone knows the feeling of too much air in the stomach. For example, some people react to certain foods with flatulence. Often, too much gas is formed in the intestine, including carbon dioxide, in order to digest fatty acids from food, for example. Flatulence can also occur when sugar compounds (carbohydrates) enter the large intestine undigested and are fermented there by bacteria, according to the Apotheken Umschau. Cabbage vegetables and legumes as well as fatty foods and dairy products often cause the unwanted gases in the intestines.
