Carb farts?

This is kinda embarrassing... at first, I noticed that during and after long rides in the saddle, I would get the toots. Big rippers. I considered my diet on these rides and concluded that Gatorade gave me gas. Then I went out on a long ride without a carb-laced drink and, lo, I STILL got the toots. So I'm thinking it's not so much the Gatorade as it is the carbohydrate in it. Perhaps it's got something to do with how I metabolize the carbs. Has anyone else experienced this?
