Good sources of Sulphur
When we fart, the gas emitted is methane, hydrogen sulphide, and mercaptans which also contain sulphur. We need lots of sulphur to make smelly farts. For example, eggs, onions, cauliflower. But not all at once please.
In fact you can tell the sulphur content of the food by the smell factor of the fart.
In contrast, baked beans produce lots of wind but little smell, because the gas is made by fermenting of the sugars in the beans, not from hydrogen sulphide gas production.
Incidentally, the smell associated with faeces is called Skatole. It is a specially fetid smell that apparently is a vital ingredient in some food flavourings, for example, ice cream.
