Do cooking techniques affect flatulence?

23 October 2013



Allana Christie asked the Naked Scientists...

I am currently trying to truly understand how food and my digestive system interacts. My most recent experience was baking cottage pie.

I ate the fried mince before I baked it and was fine. But with the fried then baked mince there was smelly air to follow!!

Is there something in the ingredients or cooking technique that would cause this?

Many thanks!
