Now why would anyone want to eliminate the gas?
Nothing is better then a Haydn Trumpet Concerto.
Around here if someone eats beans then everyone else does to defend themselves.
mykstor , I don't see it as a deterioration of the thread. I see it as people having a bit of fun at something every living thing does.
Farts are a universal humor. We're taught to frown at a natural function. I'll bet you that if a spaceship landed and the beings who were encountered heard you "Pass gas" then they would laugh. Or if you heard them "poot" you'd giggle a little yourself. I know I would.
Sorry folks but I'm just a little kid at heart.

I eliminate all gas from foods, beans, cabbage, brussels, broccoli etc., after I eat them. Had a sheltie once that got into the brewers yeast suppliment. That poor dog! He was off-gasing for 3 days, he couldn't sit down cause it hurt and he would spin around in circles trying to sniff where the smell was eminating from.

I heard there was a British fellow who makes a living from off gasing on stage. Think he calls himself Mr. Meethane?

G.Q. Us naughty little school boys never grow up.

And to me that's a good thing.

I'm old enough as it is and anything I can do to hold on to youth is welcome in my life.

And around here you'll need a highly fragranced hanky.

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.
Is there anything left after 8 hours of cooking?
This is what I do to avoid the gas problem: Boil the beans gently for 10 minutes in 5 to 10 times their weight in water (no presoaking required). Allow them to cool and soak for 24 hours at room temperatured in the same water. Discard the soaking water, rinse the beans, and cook. This method does not affect proteing content significantly, but there is considerable loss of minerals and vitamins.
Also please consider that some beans are less gas-producing and some more. This varies from person to person, but in general. adzuki beans are considered the most digestible.

I remember my sister - as a child - asking my aunt what those little white dots were on the beans she was soaking. My aunt very seriously told her that those were the 'farters'. Apparently nobody told her that was only a joke as she called my aunt a few years later when she was making her first pot of beans and asked how to get the 'farters' cut out LOL

Someone told me to use baking soda in the soak .. seems to work !
