    Smile Embarassing question

    Ok so I have googled this and I can't find the answer so I thought I would ask here. Why do bone broths -both beef and chicken - make me gassy. Gassy like in my vegan days!!! This has always happened to me. But I have a whole freezer of homemade broths and I just made some stew with the beef broth and - uch, the gas.

    So any theories?

    Perhaps it is a certain ingredient in the broth? What's in the broth you are eating?

    Too many onions used to kick my gut into rumbling in the past.....and I think I had a similar problem with my bone broths as well because of it. Was not 100% sure, never tested it as my digestion has calmed down quite a bit in general.

    i haven't yet but i have been expiramenting with onions and i do think that is the cause! amazing! i made a dish with lots of onions and chicken and i had to just throw it out because of the pain. then i ate over at my parents' and had some onions- same thing. next time i make broth i am definitely leaving it out. i never would have linked the two (i am not very good at that stuff) but now that i have things are feeling a lot better.

    Hmmm. Run a search here within MDA. I seem to recall this has been discussed before (possibly on Mark's daily blog?). Something-something about needing to roast the bones first. I do not believe it's the onions, otherwise anything you ate with onions would have the same effect, and it doesn't seem like that's the case. Anyway, yeah, run a search....

    i did roast the bones beforehand. actually they were double roasted. once when i cooked the chicken and then i roasted them some more. it is the onions. i can now tell when i eat onions that i have eaten them. it explains the pains in the stomach and the gas. i had never put two and two together. but i keep expiramenting and it keeps coming down to this.
