Does gu make your farts stink?

Seriously, the day after a good ride where I use gu (3-4 packets) I have some really bad farts. Really bad. I can only imagine what my wife thinks of them.

Anyone else have this issue? Any non-fart-inducing gu packet things out there?

As opposed to what kind of smell? Are you serious? Use some Beano.

heh, more than likely it is my rather bad diet, but it is funny when you hear someone say "what the hell is burning?"

I've found that gu isnt that bad, at least for me. For me, the thing that kills me is clif bars...the next 12 hours after I eat one...I'm farting consitenly every 5 minutes...it is so bad man.
