Beans That Won't Give You The Wind
— Ace

They're fermented with some bacteria that reduces the gas-producing feature of beans.

Then what the hell good are they?

It recalls Bactine's attempt to create a non-stinging form of the topical antiseptic. People didn't buy it-- because they associated the sting with killin' bacteria.

Same deal with the beans. If I'm not laying stank-eggs an hour after I eat beans, have they really "worked" at all?

I mean-- are such beans actually "good for your heart"?


Thanks to Roy.

3 I would suspect that these probably aren't as tasty as ordinary beans either. Like decaf coffee.

8 I learned long ago from my Texas A&M roomie that the flatulence produced by beans could be reduced, or even eliminated, by adding an orange fruit to the bean pot during cooking. Diced carrots, or sweet taters, added to his made-from-scratch 10-pound pots of beans, left them delightfully gas free. Go figure, I thought it may have had something to do with a starchy vegetable mitigating the protein in the beans during digestion. His only explanation of the effect (silly Aggie engineering student that he was) had something to do with food having a burn orange color adsorbed pre-farts really well. Gig 'em.
