Beans are part of most people’s diets, but do you know how to cook them?

You may think that just cooking it is enough, but that’s not really true.

Your grandma probably said before that it is important to soak the beans before taking them to the pot, but do you know why?

This common practice, which has been scientifically proven, serves to eliminate the substances that cause flatulence.

A Brazilian study found that 8 to 12 hours is the ideal amount of time for soaking beans.

After this time, it is important to discard the soaking water. And this is not only for beans. All grains can benefit from soaking, like chickpeas, lentils, and soy, for example. Cool, right?

Besides this old trick, there is another thing you can do when cooking beans to ensure the nutrients will be absorbed by the body.

Do you know what it is? Adding bay leaves while cooking. Do you know why?
