Beans are a great source of protein and fiber, are gluten-free, and inexpensive. But the intestinal gas that beans produce is a real turn-off…for you and your family! How do you prevent gas formation from beans? Fresh ginger root is the answer!


Put several slices into the soaking water for beans. It prevents gas formation better than commercial products. Toss it out when the beans are ready to cook then add a few more slices while the beans are cooking.

Fresh ginger can be kept by filling a quart jar filled with 2/3 white wine and 1/3 water covered in the fridge.
