negative reaction to cabbage?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created April 10, 2012 at 5:53 PM

i made a pot of bone broth and only added onion and cabbage to it. the bones were fairly meaty without much fat so i didn't bother letting it cool to remove the tallow. while i was chopping up the cabbage i ate at least a cup of it and today when i ate some i got a near immediate cramping in the area of my lats and lower abs. the symptoms resolved within 30 minutes.
any thoughts?

@Kelly, i buy a head of cabbage three or four times a year, but i don't normally ingest that much at a time. it felt similar to the reaction i have to peanuts without the mouth burning sensation.

do you normally eat cabbage? cooked cabbage and raw is one of those veggies which can affect you this way, especially if you arent use to it. Onions on GAPS is considered one of those foods that kill bad bacterias and needs to be introduced in small amounts at first, cabbage too (only because of the gassy effect it makes)

thank you...i hadn't really considered this as the symptom was near immediate upon eating the soup, but it would have been about 16 hours since eating all that raw cabbage.....maybe i will save some to eat tomorrow night just to see if the cramping repeats.

This sounds like potentially an issue with some of the FODMAPs, read more here:

The reason that cabbage will turn into sauerkraut under the right conditions is because it contains these fermentable galactans - which can also cause some issues due to fermentation byproducts (read: gas) in the gut, if not properly broken down.

FODMAPS-intolerance? Cabbage will do it to me cooked or raw in sufficient quantities.

No professional thoughts here other than my Mama always told me to never ever eat cabbage raw (unles fermented).
