What Are the Causes of Excessive Chronic Flatulence?


Flatulence is a normal body function caused by the buildup of excess gas in the body. However, excessive flatulence is not normal and can be caused by several different factors.


  • Foods such as beans and artichokes can cause an overproduction of bacteria in your stomach, which can lead to excessive flatulence. Consuming foods which contain high amounts of fiber, such as beans and brown rice, also causes flatulence.

Fructose Intolerance

Lactose Intolerance

  • 75% of people are lactose intolerant, which can cause excessive flatulence anytime you eat products containing dairy.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)


  • Gastroenteritis is inflammation of you GI tract and results in acute diarrhea, in addition to flatulence. Gastroenteritis is caused by bacteria in undercooked meat.


  • To lessen excessive flatulence, drink more water, eat and chew food slower, and avoid sudden increases of fiber in your diet. Avoid eating beans, cabbage, brussel sprouts, broccoli and peas. If you are lactose intolerant, you should avoid dairy products.
