How does broccoli effect patients of IBS? Broccoli is not good for patients with IBS since it works as a major trigger food even though it is not one of the FODMAP foods. Broccoli is known to produce gas. The gas is formed due to the high level of sulphur content within the vegetable. When broccoli is taken in, the sulphur gets mixed with the chemicals inside the stomach (the chemicals like acids found in the stomach for digestion) and forms hydrogen sulphide. This leads to gas formation with a foul smell.
