In brief: Several OTC products

Beano has enzyme that breaks down moderate-sized sugars in beans, peanuts, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, brussel sprouts.
Lactaid has enzyme that breaks down milk sugar in dairy products. Gas-x et al have simethicone that helps reduce bloating. Activated charcoal has tiny pores that absorb carbon dioxide. Use one for the food(s) giving u gas problems.
