  •  Tell them to double-rinse their beans (0+ / 0-)

    Seriously. Beans should not cause gas if properly prepared. Rinse, then rinse again.

    If they're soaking their own beans from dried beans, gas means they're using old beans. Soak, dump the water, rinse thoroughly, dump the water, then cook. There are sugars in the outer layer of the bean which are the non-digestible part.

    The older the bean, the more sugar. Rinse it off. Do NOT save the soaking water to use in cooking. Water the plants with it, or pour it on the compost pile.
