What Causes Frequent Farting
Food you eat:
When you eat, your digestive system works to break down food into usable energy to power the cells and the body's many processes and functions. But your gut finds certain foods too difficult to break down into just energy and waste, and gas is the leftover product when those foods sit in your colon.
Portions of foods that can't be broken down and digested by the intestines travel to the colon, wh. ...Read more

Yes, it could: Intestinal gas has only two sources: bacteria metabolizing incompletely digested food in the lower intestine; and swallowed air. Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) doesn't directly cause flatulence (farting), but can be associated with increased air swallowing, which is almost entirely unconscious. Some swallowed air is belched out, but most of it travels down the GI tract and emerges below. ...Read more
Bacterial metabolism: Certain foods are metabolized in different ways by the normal bacteria that live in your colon. This metabolism permits further processing of the food to give you additional nutrients. The bacteria release different organic acids based on the food and the species of bacteria. These acids are released as a gas and have distinctive odors. ...Read more
