Brussel Sprouts Flatulence

December 22, 2012 by  

Brussel Sprouts Flatulence, British researchers are developing new technology in order to produce sustainable food production amid fears of a pending global shortage. But today it emerged that technology could be used to produce a more “inert” leafy green vegetable that could prevent a person having flatulence after eating them.

Scientists at the Rothamsted Research, in Harpenden, Herts, are developing technology that focuses on re-engineering the sulphurous chemistry of vegetables.

They believe that this would allow the food to be broken down more easily in a person’s stomach, ensuring it produces less methane, the bi-product of an anaerobic digestion.

“Our priority at the moment is crop protection. Sustainable production of food is an important issue,” Prof John Pickett, who is leading the research, told the BBC Radio 4’s Today programme today.
