Urban Dictionary has an apt definition:
A fart. To be used in the expression "Ah, Bisto" inferring relief at the passing of some aromatic wind.
Origin: Bisto adverts. The family sit down to eat and one member of the family (following a deep inhalation through the nose) expresses their delight at the smell provided by the gravy, by exclaiming: "Ah, Bisto".
Q "Did you just let one go?"

On a side note, I prefer gesundheit as well. Plus I like to give it a little twist some times. By saying:

I thought of it once thinking how Gesund sort of sounded like a word that could mean nose, and heit sort of sounded like someone in a hurry saying tight. (I have this tendency to automatically turn foreign words and saying into English sound similar versions)
I have been saying ever since on special occasions were a little humor might help.
"Although the maximum extension of survival time varied between experiments, the effect was quite robust. On average, 77 percent of the worms exposed to H2S outlived the untreated worms," Roth said. The mean life span of worms grown in an atmosphere laced with hydrogen sulfide was 9.6 days greater than that of the untreated population, a longevity increase of 70 percent.”
