Okay, so, vegans aren’t the only ones who suffer from gas
As some vegans (and those that have to share their surroundings) may attest, heavy flatulence is a consequence of the vegan diet. In other words, vegans fart a lot and there are some who attribute this directly to soy intake.
Scientists in Singapore may have found a way to reduce certain carbohydrates in soybeans that have long been blamed for flatulence…
In an article in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, researchers in Singapore said they found a way round this by mixing soybeans with the fungus, R. oligosporus, which contains enzymes that appear to be able to degrade the two culprit sugars.
