It growls because when food is in your stomach your stomach churns up your food, and when it is empty it growls. Welcome to the wonderful world of DIGESTION. If you've enjoyed some of the foods and/or beverages that contribute to a gassy buildup - beans and carbonated beverages - you can expect that there will be some methane created later in the day.
