Curry powder contains fiber and so eating or consuming curry powder can and does make you poop.

The capsaicin in curry powder also triggers the TRPV1 receptors in your intestines.

Curry is known as a powerful natural laxative and this effect can be explained by a compound called capsaicin, which is also found in chili that helps to speed up digestion and moving food more quickly through the digestive tract.

Spicy foods are among the most common causes of food-induced diarrhea.

This is especially likely with strong spices that your body isn't used to.

Chili peppers and curry blends are common culprits.

A chemical called capsaicin gives chili peppers their heat.

Spices can also contribute to the bouquet of your gas so a curry of any type may be a valid reason to avoid those shared confined spaces.

But it's the fiber in foods that's the biggest trigger for farting and yes, if you increase your fiber intake, you will produce more gas.

Hot peppers, spicy curry, and other spicy foods trigger a reflux of gastric juices of the stomach into the esophagus, which causes heartburn,

Plus, many spicy foods contain a compound called capsaicin, which slows down the rate at which you digest.
