A British company has invented the fart filtering underwear called Shreddies

A healthcare underwear company has designed a range of briefs and boxers which use chemical warfare technology to filter unwanted gas.
The hi-tech pants, created by Shreddies Ltd. based in Leicestershire, England, feature a highly absorptive carbon cloth back panel which traps and neutralizes flatulence odors.

The thin and flexible cloth, which contains Zorflex — the same activated carbon material used in chemical warfare suits — is reactivated simply by washing the pants.


Shreddies say through extensive testing the carbon cloth could filter odors 200 times the strength of the average flatus emission.


Shreddies website claims that the ladies brief is perfect for everyday wear.

"This style of flatulence filtering underwear fits low on the waist and is cut high on the leg."

Suitable for men and women the underwear comes in a range of styles and is designed to fit more snugly than conventional underwear

The award-winning healthcare product is particularly useful for sufferers of digestive disorders such as IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome), Crohn's disease, Colitis and food intolerances.

Women can buy Shreddies in briefs, high-leg briefs or shorties, while men can purchase support boxers, adjustable support boxers, hipsters and briefs.
It has even been reported that soccer player Frank Lampard has worn the underwear, so there is no need to be embarrassed buying them.


This pair of Shreddies for women costs about $31.

A spokesperson at Shreddies Ltd. said:

"Although Shreddies has got cheeky with the new campaign, to many people they still remain very much a healthcare product and have helped so many cope with conditions such as IBS, Crohn's and food intolerances. But the bottom line is that Shreddies are for everyone, after all, it’s something we all do."


The carbon material is apparently reactivated every time the pants are washed.

"Flatulence seriously affects millions of people every day and since 2008 Shreddies has been helping those affected increase their quality of life. We have found the answer to help alleviate the most obvious symptom of flatulence…the odors."
