    Gas in the gastrointestinal tract has only two sources. It is either swallowed air or is produced by bacteria that normally inhabit the intestines, primarily the colon. Swallowed air rarely is the cause of excessive flatulence. The source of excessive gas is intestinal bacteria.

    Yes, it is the result of various metabolic activities of the gut flora (i.e. bacteria).
