Gases that are produced in the stomach pass into the small intestine where the food we eat is digested and absorbed; the residues, such as dietary fibre and some carbohydrates, pass on to the colon. The colon contains many different kinds of bacteria, which ferment these residues producing large volumes of gases in the process. Most of these gases are absorbed into the blood stream and eventually excreted in the breath but the rest is passed as wind or ‘flatus.’
