Broccoli is another healthy food that is best avoided with IBS. Why? Because it contains raffinose, which produces gas. Broccoli’s high sulphur and insoluble fiber content can also cause gut issues.
If you’re a broccoli lover, grating or ricing the vegetable can make it easier for your body digest it. Or, you can simply ditch the broccoli altogether and eat more spinach, eggplant, celery, carrots, or squash.
