Thumbs up Beans are excellent for overall health

Beans are excellent for overall health and the gas is actually a result of good bacterial growth in our intestines, in which the gas is temporary.
On beans & gas, here's a great column about exactly that: Beans and Gas: Clearing the air | NutritionFacts.org (NutritionFacts.org is an excellent resource. Non-commercial, and provides sources for all research cited.)

Change hot pre-soak water frequently

Right now I'm washing in hot water, then soaking for 12 hours, then cooking on medium heat for 8 hours. Is that enough? Are there other methods? Should they be washed more? Thank you.

This thread deteriorates as it continues without offering much help, so I'll post my own research on lowering the price of gas here:

Beans cause gas because of a particular indigestible sugar called raffinose. Humans lack the enzyme to break down this sugar. Raffinose is also responsible for the reputation of cruciferous veggies such as cabbage, brussels sprouts and broccoli.
The result is parallel to lactose intolerance. To one degree or another, adults produce less or no lactase, an enzyme infant mammals need to break down the sugar lactose in milk.

Use hot water and change it as frequently as practical during the soak period, a minimum of four hours for most varieties.
The most effective current remedy, besides the commercial product Beano, appears to be to reduce the amount of raffinose in beans before cooking them. Most beans should be pre-soaked before cooking anyway, so it's the perfect opportunity to leach out as much raffinose as you can.

Think of the process as similar to brewing tea. The longer you let tea leaves infuse, the stronger the liquid becomes. In our case, the hot soak water becomes increasingly infused with extracted raffinose.
It's a chemical principle in liquids that molecules migrate away from any area of higher concentration to areas of lower concentration. The rate of this diffusion slows to a standstill as equilibrium is approached. A corollary is that molecules move more quickly in higher temperatures.
Frequent changing of hot pre-soak water, and taking more time with this, will flush away the maximum amount of the culprit from your beans as possible.
Obviously, you'll do a more thorough job of this than canners do, so prepare your own beans from dried stock.
Don't undercook them. Longer, slower cooking breaks down more of the remaining culprit.
Cooked beans freeze beautifully in baggies. I like to portion them out in standard can sizes recipes call for.

Diabetic? Here's an additional benefit:
Read the ingredients on a can of kidney beans. See that sugar??
All brands I've inspected add it to this type of bean.
I have to watch out for added sugar and HFCS like a hawk.
Preparing your own is so simple if you do a large batch and freeze.

All I can offer is what my dad did for us and that was to add baking soda to the beans he made us. he added several Tab. of the baking soda to his beans before serving. Watch the pot so they don't spill over
