Slow cooker pinto beans-magical fruit?
Pinto beans are a powerful nutrient that can improve blood sugar control and heart health. Pinto beans are also rich in various antioxidants, which may help reduce the risk of chronic diseases. They are a staple food in many countries. Although it takes time to make them from dried beans, it is easy!
Are you angry? Remember the nursery rhyme “Peas are a magical fruit, the more you eat, the more beep……”? why is that? Well, the compound sugars in beans are the culprit. So I searched “how to reduce gas in beans” on Google. Admittedly, I haven’t tested all these suggestions, nor have I found any research to confirm their effectiveness, but people swear by their time-tested ways to reduce beeping. So go try it.
- Keep eating: Unlike the song mentioned earlier, the more you eat, your body will adapt to changes in your diet and start to produce less gas instead of more.
- Soak them for 12 hours. (A study I encountered showed that this method does reduce gas.) Some people like to change the soaking water when it is cloudy, but the study did not mention whether this has any effect.
- Apple cider vinegar: When the beans are soft but not fully cooked, add a little vinegar and 1-2 teaspoons of salt. Vinegar will not only brighten the taste, but also help break down those unpleasant complex sugars.
- Baking soda: When soaking dried beans, add 1/16 teaspoon per quart of water. The theory again is that it will reduce the effect of complex sugars. Make sure to rinse off all baking powder residue before cooking.
- Ginger: Add 1 tablespoon of ginger to the cooking water. Ginger is a natural stomach medicine.
- Freeze the soaked beans overnight before cooking. Add the frozen beans and water, and pour the beans into the pot. Boil for 10 minutes, drain, and follow the recipe.
