Why do beans make us bloated?

Beans (legumes in general) cause gas because they contain a type of sugar called an oligosaccharide that the human body cannot fully digest. Other sugars are broken down and absorbed in the small intestine. But the human body does not produce an enzyme that breaks down oligosaccharides.

Oligosaccharides in beans reach the large intestine in an undigested state. Bacteria in the large intestine feed on these sugars.

This causes fermentation (chemical decomposition) and gas production. We release that gas and it causes gas.
