Has it crossed our mind that after we cook those beans they have lost most of their vitalities to high heat and concequently are dead foods therefore it produces stench just like most other highly cooked foods. Meats, eggs, beans and other protein foods produce amonia after digestion which not only is acidic and harmful to the body but also produces strong odor or stench. The body constantly works hard to eliminate it by various ways possible and one of the those ways is constant air freshner (lol), if you know what I mean.

I used to eat beans at least 5 days in a week without stomach complications. Only for me to arrive back home during easter at night and eat beans had to wake up and vomit due to malaria. After then, ever since i eat beans i get into one problem or the other. The last one was when i suffered indigestion for two days and used 4 andrews liver salt. It wasn't funny

Big hi in the house,

Some people are intolenrant to Trypsin(the main protein) present in the beans. Apart from that, however, in every food there is what is called antinutrient which tries to inhibit utilization of the nutrient. You may wonder why it is there? It acts as natural protector against minor disease that may plague the beans.

Both Trypsin and antinutrient are majorly present in the beans seedcoat while few are found in the seed itself. That is why some people don't stool when they eat moin-moin. To avoid stooling alway endeavour to eat it with gari, bread, yam or any solid carbohydrate

the disacharide sugars in Beans are three; Raffinose, Starchyose and Verbasrose. They are indigestible by ordinary GIT system except when well cooked.

THE SUGARS RELEASE TERMINAL FLUID INSIDE THE COLON THAT IS RESPONSIBLE FOR ITS MUSCULAR CONTRACTION AND FORMATION AND RELEASE OF GASEOUS SUBSTANCE POPULARLY KNOWN AS FLATULENCE OR FART.

always soak your beans in water for at least an hour to allow the gas in the skin to dispel before cooking.

i guess its of the mind. Beans is my best meal actually, so i am talking from experience. Maybe u eat from "iya basira" and they don't cook them under clean conditions and also maybe its watery.

But seriously its mostly psychological

There's something to be said about methods of preparation and the sysmptoms.

Eating moi-moi, and akara which are made from beans don't seem to cause so much stooling and excessive gas.

Maybe eating beans in this form causes us to eat less and avoid the outer-coating--- which maybe contributing to fiber.

Can't wait to hear from a registered nutritionist or dietician.

@datnigadaz…,  Who are the you that say flatulence?  The 2nd class of the 2nd class citizens or who? If people call it fart in the states ( and which states are you talking about?,  Cross River, Benue or Bauchi states?) well we in Nigeria call it mess!!

@ presido 1

presido1 Maybe you should check your facts. People who eat eggs and meat have smellier mess than peole who eat beans.

What makes your mess (farts) stink is the small amounts of hydrogen sulfide gas and mercaptans inside the mixture coming out from your body. These compounds contain sulfur. Nitrogen-rich compounds also add to the stench of your mess.

The more sulfur-rich your diet is the more sulfides and mercaptans will be produced by the bacteria in your intestines, and the more mercaptans the more smelly will be your mess.

Foods such as cauliflower,eggs and meat are the worst for producing smelly "messing" whereas when you eat BEANS,  you produce alot of air that is not as smelly as that of meat and eggs.

Very interesting topic, from xperience anyway, i can say eating raw beans stored in d freezer b4 cooking is beta than d one nt. Then, beans are legumes, upon ingestion, they are broken by bacteria which we all hv in our intestines, perfectly normal. product is ammonia gas among other products. d gas causes ur MESS, stimulates increased bowel movement, ur POO-POO, some may hav abdominal cramps,

My brother, we just dey exchange ideas. No big deal.

Your referrence link was about red beans, not our popular blackeye pea or 'beans'. I know there are at least 100 species of beans, both poisnous and edible.

Personally, I have never eaten red beans, but I know people who have. My grand-mother would tell us about some type of beans they were forced to eat as kids because of hunger, "we soaked it for 4 days, cooked it for 24 hours, and had the dog taste it before we did" My discussion is focused on blackeye pea, because some species of beans could kill you.

Another point with your ref. was that it was an experiment in mice- now, you know that man and mice don't share similar diet, colonic anatomy, or even social influence of excessive gas production-farting.

From a surgical point of view, any agent that induces colonic diarheae also activates the lymphocytes lining the colons, not just with beans.

Diarheae or not, the most important point is moderation. There are different types of fiber-soluble and insoluble, but they produce same effect- makes you go.

Have you ever wondered why beans is always on the menu of institutionalized settings- prisons, hospitals, boarding schools? Despite the bad name, it's the only cheaply available food that has been found to ward off malnutrition.

Many people don't know, I too didn't know when I was in boarding house at Nike Boys, we thought that Wednesday and Saturday beans was a punishment sent directly from hell.

Oligosacharide is a soluble fiber (also called fermentable) fiber. It is not a nondigestable. Though about 90% escape digestion in the small intestine, they are digested by becateria in the large intestine which is why they are used as probiotics.

Again vegetables also contain a lot of this oligosacharide yet they do not cause diarrhoea.

I stand to be corrected though.

It's not all about FIBER either <fake and 9jaking>. there are soluble and insoluble fibers. those are also factors of effects of certain foods on people.

Having said all that, you sound very constructive. The fart thing is not disputable.

But the diarrhoea aspect  . . . . 100 gram of yam has 20grams of fibre. It does not cause diarrhorea. Your vegetable contains a lot of fiber it does not cause diarrhoea but rather aids digestion.

Now take a look at this site. http://www.foodreference.com/html/artredkidneybeanpoisoning.html

Also look at this paper from pubmed

http://www.pubmedcentral.nih.gov/articlerender.fcgi?artid=1382449

There some fibre that is used to ease constipation  like methylcellulose fiber etc. They are used as mild laxative. They are not as aggressive as beans induced diarrhoea. But they are gentle. I am a victim and I know the difference.

Remember not everybody will suffer from the laxative effect.

I will take your explaination and jetison mine if you have a better fact.

Fiber, fiber, fiber.

Indigestible food particles that must be passed in the stool= fiber.

It's not really much about how it's cooked. It's the beans itself. The sugar in beans (oligosaccharide) is hard to digest or break down in da human body or at least for most people. and most people don't have the enzyme that breaks down that sugar. it's the same thing with lactose-intolerant people. they donnot have lactase, the enzyme that breaks down sugar found in diary products.

Beans or black eye pea as they are called in the US is probably the best food anyone could eat.

Here is a USDA link to the nutritional contents of beans:

http://www.fns.usda.gov/fdd/facts/hhpfacts/FS-PeasBlack-eyedDry.pdf

It is definitely FALSE that excessive stooling after beans meal is secondary to some "phytoagglutinins that cause a translocation of bacteria into lymph nodes," or to improper drainage of the water, or because the gods were angry with you as you were consuming the meal.

If you look at the nutritutional contents, you would see that 1 serving, say 1 cup has as much as 11g of fiber. The fiber is what makes you stool, nothing else. Now the more you eat, because it tastes nice or because you're hungry, you may forget that you may be taking a little bit too much fiber than you need.

The next characteristics of legumes or beans is just too much 'fart, gas, or mess' Beans provides you with so many essential minerals than any food group out there that there is a saying that 'if you only have one opportunity to eat one meal in 48 hours, then beans is your food'

Legumes and especially beans contain purines; one of the essential building blocks of DNA, amino acids, and proteins. This high protein compound is what gets broken down by enzymes and bacteria into different types of gases- ammonia, sulfur, nitrogen, carbon dioxide, etc. ---- that you pass the gas as 'fart'.

Passing fart, or gas is also a good sign that the beans you've eaten is being successfully used to replace deficient amino acids and minerals in the body.

Without sounding like a beans salesman, I would like to recommend that you eat beans today, and at least once a week. Beans is one of the natural foods found to reduce your risk of heart attack(it contains 0 fat/cholesterol), reduce constipation, and replenishes lost essential minerlas.

I would like the opinion of registered nutritionists and other physicians in the forum on this topic.
