Will CTP give me Gas or Bloating?

We had a great session last night talking sports nutrition with the athletes from our Hockey camp. We even brought in CTP Smoothies for them to try (thanks Dorothy!). What I didn't realize was, before I could tell them to drink them slowly, they're cups were pretty much empty. I suppose I don't realize that most people chug their smoothies which causes issues like gas, bloating and indigestion. We often get the question, does CTP cause gas or other digestive issues?
