All about cabbage > Preventing flatulence

The cellulose fibre in cabbage contains a substance that tends to ferment in the intestines, producing unpleasant and noisy effects! But there's a simple solution to prevent such problems and to overcome cabbage's indigestibility:

  • Blanch the cabbage in water, allowing it to cook for a good five minutes after the water comes to the boil;
  • discard the water; cover with fresh water and continue cooking.

Keep in mind, too, that Chinese varieties are much more digestible and have fewer "gaseous" effects.
