Why Do My Burps Taste like Rotten Eggs?

Answer

Burps that taste like rotten eggs are known as sulphur burps. It comes from hydrogen sulphide (H2S) which is a gas that originates from sulphur-containing proteins in some foods after they have been broken down in the small intestine or stomach by sulphur-reducing microbes. The microbes may be pathogenic bacteria or normal intestinal bacteria.
