According to the article "NASA banned flatulence-inducing foods like beans, cabbage, sprouts and broccoli. " This is from 2010, so standards may have changed. I've read that other banned foods include salt and pepper and bread (crumbs/tiny grains are dangerous).

I can't view the link. My posted article was from 2010 but there's another one from 2020 that says the same thing. Maybe NASA figured out how to make fart free beans. If they have, then this is government technology that they are keeping secret...

Technically, all gases take up space. That's why when breathe into a balloon, you inflate it. I suppose that suggests that you could fart into a balloon and also inflate it... if you could get the seal tight enough.
