Kale, broccoli, and cabbage can lead to bloating, but that doesn’t mean they are not amazingly healthy. These vegetables are highly nutritious and have rich amounts of fiber that is essential to ensure you have a strong digestive system. The issue lies in the high raffinose content in these vegetables. Raffinose is a sugar that only the bacteria in your stomach can digest and its fermentation is the main cause of bloating.

You don’t need to throw all of these vegetables out, just make sure you keep a check on the among you eat. Steaming or boiling them is known to reduce the amount of sugar you consume.
