Bread does NOT cause bloating

bread-the-factsBread, often maligned, for causing bloating may not be to blame so says a panel of experts.

Ayela Spiro, of the British Nutrition Foundation (BNF) told a London conference of dieticians and nutritionists discussing bloating this month at King’s College London.

She also cited a new (as yet unpublished) study from the University of Bristol, which showed bread produced less physically measurable abdominal bloating than a pasta meal, despite diners saying they expected the bread would bloat them more.

Other, published, research on bread and bloating include this earlier report, also by the BNF: Does-bread-cause-bloating
