Soaking beans in water overnight does reduce the gas in the beans.

The soaking of the beans in the water removes the complex sugars in the beans which is a major cause of gas buildup in people who eat beans.

Beans are healthy but most people including myself hate that they give them gas and make them fart too much after eating them.

The easy way to get rid of the gas from beans is to soak the beans in water overnight.

Then drain the water from the beans and replace it with fresh water before cooking them.

The beans will have less gas producing sugar in them so that you won't get too much gas when you eat the beans.

You can also take beano to help reduce gas in your stomach when eating gassy foods such as beans.

Soaking beans overnight does reduce gas from the beans.

Simply place dried beans in a container, cover them with water and let them soak.

They'll need to soak eight to 12 hours, but the key to eliminating the gas is draining and rinsing every three hours.

Drain, rinse and start soaking again every three hours.

You can also reduce gas from beans by adding some baking soda to the cooking water.
