These are the foods which cause gas:

Legumes: Especially dried beans and peas, baked beans, soy beans, lima beans
Milk Products: Milk, ice cream, cheese
Vegetables: Cabbage, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, cucumbers, sauerkraut, kohlrabi, asparagus
Root Vegetables: Potatoes, rutabaga, turnips, radishes, onions
Fruits: Prunes, apricots, apples, raisins, bananas
Cereals & Breads: Cereals, breads, pastries, and all foods containing wheat and wheat products. Check labels
Fatty Foods: Pan-fried or deep-fried foods, fatty meats, rich cream sauces and gravies, pastries, and any high-fat food. Check labels.
Liquids: Carbonated beverages, fizzy medicine

And, of course alcohol.

I would avoid all of these.
Make sure you eating enough fiber, as if you have constipation, it will make you more gasey..

warm regards
