Okay there's no polite way to ask this... Is anyone else farting all the time?<br><br>
Is there anything I can do about this? Will my body eventually adjust to the excess gas?<br><br>
I feel great but I'm stinky. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/help.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":help:">

No, ew, and yes.<br><br><br><br>
From what I have read your body will adjust the more you eat them.<br><br><br><br>
I eat beans just about every day and my air biscuits are minimal.<br><br><br><br>
Do you use dried beans or canned?<br><br><br><br>
Cheers!<br><br>

I read that too. I also read that rinsing them to remove the original bean juices helps, too.<br><br><br><br>
Aren't there pills you can take to help as well?

When I first became a vegetarian, I was so incredibly gassy, it was awful.<br><br>
I think the second or third thread I ever started was on this very topic.<br><br><br><br>
Someone helpfully posted these links:<br><br><a href="http://www.veggieboards.com/boards/s...&highlight=gas" target="_blank">http://www.veggieboards.com/boards/s...&highlight=gas</a><br><br><a href="http://www.veggieboards.com/boards/s...&highlight=gas" target="_blank">http://www.veggieboards.com/boards/s...&highlight=gas</a><br><br><a href="http://www.veggieboards.com/boards/s...&highlight=gas" target="_blank">http://www.veggieboards.com/boards/s...&highlight=gas</a><br><br><a href="http://www.veggieboards.com/boards/s...&highlight=gas" target="_blank">http://www.veggieboards.com/boards/s...&highlight=gas</a><br><br><a href="http://www.veggieboards.com/boards/s...&highlight=gas" target="_blank">http://www.veggieboards.com/boards/s...&highlight=gas</a><br><br><a href="http://www.veggieboards.com/boards/s...&highlight=gas" target="_blank">http://www.veggieboards.com/boards/s...&highlight=gas</a><br><br><a href="http://www.veggieboards.com/boards/s...&highlight=gas" target="_blank">http://www.veggieboards.com/boards/s...&highlight=gas</a><br><br><br><br>
I also found that papaya enzymes helped (you can get them at the HFS).<br><br>
I still have my moments, but for the most part, things settled down a few months after I switched over and my body adjusted.

I make dried beans. Soak dry beans in about 1/4 cup of baking soda and water per small package for at least 8 hours before cooking. After 8 hours dump water and beans through collender (sive) and rinse well over sink with fresh water. Put beans in pot or crockpot, cover with new water, and cook.<br><br><br><br>
Also if you are new to lots of beans, you need to start eating them in small amounts. If you read up on flatulence, you will find that it is not you passing gas, it is your micro-organisms. You need to gradually build up your bean consumption instead of suddenly giving the critters too much nitrogen to work with. flatulence is a sign that they are being overwhelmed, so back down on beans and eat less but more often.

Careful... some sources say adding baking soda to beans destroys the thiamine, making them less nutritious. I have read that using 1/8 tsp baking soda in your black beans will help them retain their color and is not enough to significantly alter the nutrition profile, but 1/4 cup is a lot of baking soda.<br><br><a href="http://nutrition.about.com/od/askyournutritionist/f/bakingsodabvit.htm" target="_blank">http://nutrition.about.com/od/askyou...ngsodabvit.htm</a>
