Eat sweet potatoes and you will fart. Hahahaha! I love sweet potatoes and would not trade it for any junk food actually but just like you I never experience farting after eating. So, it is very clear that it is just an old tale that is not true at all. So let's keep eating sweet potatoes. It is one of the healthiest substitutes to junks.

Well In a medical class I took I recall the instructor stating that flatulance usually follows a bowel movement excuse my French. So maybe because of the high content of Vitamins B6,D,C,iron and magnesium a healthy food lead to quicker digestion is my theory! Go sweet potaoe..

It depends on the person, some food make gas in some people but not whole people. It is heard that potatoes make gas but it not true to all people. Pulses and grams can make gas, here also some people can survive without facing any problems at all. So what I felt is, it depends on the person and how his/her stomach reacts. I don’t have any problem with potatoes or pluses.
