We eat variety of foods everyday. For some foods we agree with while for others we might not agree with. Even natural foods can be hard on our digestion and lead to bloating, flatulence, acid re-flux or general discomfort. We have put together a list of foods that are not digestion friendly and what goes on inside our body when they are consumed.
1. Beans: Beans are rich in fiber and protein. Along with that beans contain sugar name Oligosaccharide which is difficult to digest so when this sugar reaches the intestine then the problem of flatulence can take place so the studies have shown that soaking beans dramatically reduces flatulence for consumers without affecting the nutritional content
2. Spicy Foods: Adding spices to the dish can put a taste to the meal but excess consumption of it can lead to heart burn and can also trigger the stomach problems, which directly affects the digestive system
3. Raw Onions: Onions are packed with phyto nutrient compounds, many of which are good for heart health. However, some of these compounds irritate the stomach. So, cooked forms of onions are more easily digestible than the raw onions
4. Fried Foods: Fried foods in general are difficult for your digestive system to process. They’re greasy and high in fat, both of which can lead to stomach issues. Try to avoid fried foods and stick to the mode of healthy cooking,example steaming, baking, roasting and grilling
