Walt, HY - Question about Bean-o

Posted by Naya on June 09, 2002 at 16:50:00:

Walt, I remember that not too long ago you posted someething about Bean-O, saying that it was ok to take to help in the digestion of certain gas-producing veggies like broccoli andd cauliflower, However, I think I once read that the Aspergillus (?) in it is a mold and is not recommended for people with candida or LGS. Could you clarify this for me please? I'd love to be able to take it, but haven't done so for years due too that advisory I seem to recall. Thanks for your response.

If you soak your beans overnight, and rinse before cooking and change the water once or twice during cooking, the sugars in the beans that cause the gas will be greatly diminished. The soaking process neutralizes some of these anti-nutrients but they can remain in the water which is why it is important to rinse them and change the water while cooking. Also, skim the foam off the top as they cook. You may not even need an enzyme to take after doing it this way.

Those enzymes are also partly broken down by the cooking process. So, as long as you are not eating raw broccoli, you should be fine.

Your suppose to eat raw veggies for enzymes but you have to cook them to partially destroy them?

I take digestive enzymes with every meal, but Beano is the only thing that works for me on onions. Raw or cooked, salad onions or winter onions, I always get gas unless I take Beano.

Hi, Naya.

The raffinase (the necessary enzyme to digest the raffinose), in the BeanO may be derived from aspergillus but they would not dare have any live aspergillus in the product. I would forget about any such warning.

I use HY's process to reduce the raffinose content of my beans.

Hope this helps.

Walt

Thanks, Walt. You answered my exact concerns. Now I think I'll try it for certain veggies.

No. You have obviously not read many of my posts and have managed to simplify my ideas into this statement.

Enzymes are best receieved from vegetable JUICING, and from SALAD vegetables such as cucumbers and lettuces, but certain vegetbales like the cabbage family (broccoli, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, cabbage), contain anti-nutrients that can affect the thyroid and the intestinal tract while at the same time impeding absorption of nutrients. THESE vegetbales are best cooked or steamed in order to neutralize these anti-nutrients and break the tough cellulose that contains the nutrients. They are easier to digest, don't affect the thyroid negatively, and improve absorption of nutrients. If you wish to get raw enzymes from the cabbage family vegetables, FERMENT them to produce sauerkraut. The fermentation process accomplishes the same thing as cooking but has the advantage of INCREASING nutrient content and enzyme content. That should clear things up. I don't mind answering questions. That's why I am here and why I post so much but I am really going to start asking more of the people that post to me or reply to my posts. This sort of thing is happening more and more. Do just a little more homework and things will go much smoother. Did you read my post on LGS diet called BASIC leaky gut diet? This is all contained in that post. Thanks :-)

HY

I will try to be more diligent and do my research first before asking.(Although I do ask a lot of questions, hey! :) Your time is valuable, and we dont want to abuse that or take advantage of you. You are too precious to us here on the board.

Thanks, HY!

I am continually amazed at the possibilities of misinterpretation in the English Language.

Namaste`

I Sensual,

"Confused" was your post? Well, although I do post a lot, I believe that every single person here contributes and that makes ALL of our time equally important, including yours. No hard feelings. For the most part, I am easy-going. But, doing a little more homework would be a good thing for all of us. That way, we are more accurate with our info and can respond more diligantly. I hope I finally answered that for you. Take Care

No, "confused" is not me, HY. I just thought I would put my two cents in as I have often hounded you for answers. Guess I should have made that a bit clearer. Of course, no hard feelings, but I would not disrespect you anyway.
