Excessive Burping?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I've been gluten-free for over a year and am mostly symptom free, but have been having a problem with burping for a few months. I am definitely not ingesting any gluten, I am obsessively careful and nothing has really changed in my diet. Any ideas about what could be causing it or how to fix it?

Burping can be caused by a slew of different things and most of the time, gas it common.

Some benign causes include: swallowing air while eating or drinking, fiber can also gas due to the fermentation of bacteria - especially prebiotic fiber such as the kind found in bananas and oats. Eating too fast, chewing gum, and probiotics will also usually results in burping.

One instance where there actually may be a problem is: maldigestion or malabsorption of food - fats are usually the culprit in this case since they are the most complicated to break down and absorb. Other culprits include sugar - the big ones here are fructose and lactose.

So for the most part I would say gas is very common, especially for recovering Celiacs. You may also want to look into digestive enzymes, those have helped me a lot with fats.

Excessive burping for me is a definite sign of trace gluten contamination. I have to avoid a lot of those gluten free foods.
