  1. PB_GenX says:

    Protein bars usually contain sugar alcohols, which upset many peoples’ stomachs and cause bad gas.

    With shakes, gas is usually caused by the lactose (more so if you are lactose-intolerant).

    Avoiding sugar alcohols and lactose in your protein products will help you out.

    Good luck!
