I am wondering if anyone knows if potatoes can cause bloating? I ate a lot of potatoes today and my stomach feels like a baloon again. I think I consumed about 8 potatoes. I ate tortillas with potatoes for lunch and a soup with cauliflower and potatoes for dinner.


I am about 5,5 months into GFD, still positive bloodwork.

Yes, I think they can make you feel bloated in my opinon. If I eat too many potatoes, I almost feel glutened. I know they don't contain gluten of course, but that's how they make me feel. I became sensitive to potatoes and corn a few weeks after going gluten free. I've cut corn and potatoes out of my diet completely now and feel even better.

Many of us have a reaction (non-gluten) to corn and nightshades.

I am avoiding night shades in hopes that it will aid healing for me.  Yes, I have noticed a bloated tummy after potatoes.
