Potatoes and bloating

Should I avoid potato during periods, as I experience a lot of bloating and gastritis during periods?

Hi Suzane! Yes cooked potatoes especially when reheated can cause bloating & gas production in the stomach. Cooked potatoes contain resistant starch which is fermented by gut bacteria so they produce more gas. So if you feel like potatoes aggravate your bloating & gastritis issue during periods you can definitely avoid it.
