    • Gas comes from your body digesting the fiber.  Eat beans frequently and your body adjusts and quits making all that gas.  

      Rinsing and cooking methods have NOTHING whatsoever to do with how much gas beans produce.  It’s all about your digestion.

    • It is about digesting, but soaking can help.  It is recommended to soak them at least 12 to 24 hrs & change the water every 3 to 6 hrs.  Soaking them helps to release the complex sugars which is suppose to help make them easier to digest.  

      Just be sure to use clean fresh water when you start to cook them.

      Regardless it might be a good option to use something like beano until your body adjusts to it.

      Hope that helps.

    • Definitely about how our body processes what we feed it, is my opinion. I eat beans almost every day for the fiber, the protein, vitamins, etc and because I LIKE them. ;o)  (Lived in NM where beans is usually a part of every meal.)  

      I wash and soak the beans, then rinse them before I cook them, but not sure that is why I don’t get gas from eating them? Think it’s the rest of my diet maybe?

    • Miss T is right, when soaking the dried beans change the water often and use fresh water when ready to cook them after rinsing the hell out of them.

      I can eat certain small beans and not have any difficulty, but when I eat refried, red or kidney beans, whew! Glad I live alone! (I’ve been slapped by my best friend before over the refried beans, 20 minutes after I eat them I’m like dangerous estatic LOL)
