The baking soda does work. But the problem is that it also destroys the nutrients in beans. Eventually your system does get used to eating beans and other roughage. Try to eat them often enough and it will happen for you also. I used to make baked beans every Saturday for the family. Because of all the roughage I fed the family, gas was never a problem with the beans.
