I always had a significant amount of flatulences since I was a teenager and all the way to my 40's here in Switzerland, a country with a lot of cheese and dairy in our diet, and I noticed I had much less during a trip in South America.
As the only time I had flatulence during that trip was a day I had a glass of milk, I zeroed out dairy as the potential culprit and adopted a dairy-free diet, unfortunately without much success.
These last years, I traveled to other countries, such as the Caucasus region (Georgia and Armenia), Iran and Central Asia, which all have a reputation for balanced diets and, indeed, I had no flatulence at all.
Coming back from these places, I tried to adopt their diet: breakfast with wholegrain bread, lunch and diner with variations of couscous consisting of mostly vegetables and bulgur or rice, but again to no avail.
I'm starting to wonder if this difference between important flatulence at home and no flatulence during travel comes from other parameters than the food. For example, I'm much more active during a trip (visiting stuff all day long) than at home where I'm mostly sedentary (working from home, having a quick stroll to the supermarket). I'm not particularly stress here, so it cannot come from this.
