Protein adaptation is a possibility, but the most likely cause is high FP carbs. It takes very few carbohydrates to produce overgrowth and significant amounts of gas. I wish I could say otherwise.
I wanted to add one more point. If you have SIBO, you are likely not digesting/absorbing even low FP carbs as well as someone without SIBO. In other words, “effective GIs” would be lower and “effective FPs” would be higher for people with SIBO. All in all, you’re better off with low FP carbs vs. high FP carbs, but you might want to limit overall carbs a bit more for a week or so if you have breakthrough symptoms.
