Fat-rich Foods Linger Long in the Stomach
An enzyme deficiency can sometimes be the cause. In this case, the food cannot be metabolized well. Bacteria then attack the foodstuffs and build them into intestinal gases.
Sometimes it is also allergies that lead to problems within the gastrointestinal tract. The affected person usually only has to avoid the problematic foods consistently. Very fat-rich foods are problematic for most people: because fats stay the longest in the stomach, the pressure on the stomach wall takes longer than with other meals. In addition, the gastric muscular stretching is even more intense after a fat-rich meal. In the case of disorders of the pancreas or concerning bile production, fats can no longer be properly metabolized.
