I notice that when I eat raw more often, that I get more stomach aches due to gas- pretty great, huh? You can't win them all.
:umm: Has anyone tried Beano or Gas-X or something like that to help with gas from eating fruits and veggies?

I haven't had that problem. I've read that combining certain foods can cause gas. So basically, I don't combine foods at all, and I haven't had any troubles whatsoever with gas.

Maybe instead of taking a drug, find out what combinations of food are causing the problem and change that combination.

The Raw Life by Paul Nison has a food combining chart. I'm sure there are some others out there too.

Bean-o has gelatin in it. Gas-X is in a gelcap, which I would assume is made of gelatin.

There are some enzymes you can take with meals, two I know of are called Digest and Omegazyme. Also, papaya enzymes are useful... I just bought some... they're a lot cheaper, and seem to work at least as well as the other things.

Good luck!
