Why am I fine with coconut products (creamed coconut, coconut oil, milk) but get flatulence from fresh coconut meat?

Anyone else experience this? What could be the reason for it? Is it that processing = less of whatever irritates my system?

Now that you mention it, I do. I've only used coconut flour a few times, and when it was just a few tbsp added to something I never had a problem, but when I made coconut flour pancakes, it affected me pretty bad!

Soluble fiber in the meat will form a gel-like substrate in your intestines where your gut flora will ferment said fiber into SCFA's (short chain fatty acids) to be used for fuel by your body. short chain fatty acids have many of the benefits of MCFA's (medium chain fatty acids), however, the gaseous by-products of the fermentation will cause some increase in flatulence.

Well, fresh coconut would certainly have more soluble fibre.

Probably the fiber. Do you have any issues with coconut flour?
