Researchers from Venezuela discovered the secret to producing fart-free beans:
Flatulence is caused by bacteria that live in the large intestine that break down food not already digested higher in the gut. The gas the bacteria produce is emitted from the body as a fart.
Granito and colleagues found that adding these two gut bacteria to black beans, or Phaseolus vulgaris, before cooking makes them even less likely to cause flatulence.
What? Fart-free beans? Is nothing sacred anymore? What will I do with my anti-fart chair cusion?
