GERD: It is possible that Pentoz cause gas and may be responsible for the belching. However it looks like you have Gasroesophageal reflux disease explaining the symptoms you described. Is it possible you did not use pentoz for long enough? Dietary manipulation may also help: reducing gas producing foods like dairy, beans,soda e.t.c. Increase fiber in your diet by eating more vegetables and drink water.
