For me it's soybeans. I don't like peas so I haven't tried that but since the two are legumes, the reaction may be similar.

It's all chemistry. Our bodies take the food proteins and break them down so that we can use them. If our body doesn't have the right stuff to break down the proteins .. watch out .. all the fun GI stuff starts happening.

Avoid the problem foods. If you accidentally get bloated, you might want to try taking charcoal tablets. They are drug free, found in nearly any drugstore and they have helped me. But the best is to avoid the foods that your body can not tolerate.
