I've tried searching for this, but haven't come up with much. I know the beans are known for giving gas. I don't notice this usually, if I do it's gentle gas
and not bothersome. But whenever I eat chickpeas, whether they're canned and rinsed, canned and not rinsed, or soaked and cooked from dry form, about 1-2 hours later I get a terrible pain in my stomach, and end up with horrible, loud
, gas. And I end up feeling very uncomfortable for a couple of hours at least. This doesn't happen when I eat hummus, but I'm assuming that's because it's such a small amount. It's more when I eat something like a salad with chickpeas, pasta with chickpeas, etc., where they're a more main part of the meal.
Does this happen to everyone and you just grin and bear it? Or could I possibly have some kind of intolerance?
Let me know if you have any thoughts. I love chickpeas, but I hate the way they make me feel
