Dried Beans – to soak or not to soak, that is the question

Again Adrianne43 - Please re-educate yourself. Eventhough it can contribute to mineral deficiencies in people whose diets rely on these foods for their mineral intake, simply soaking in water will not remove the phytic acid like you are thinking. You must soak in an acid medium not plain H2O. Furthermore, most phylic acid is removed just by cooking the foods. I can sight until I'm blue-in-the-face, but until you do more studies I suggest that you start a probiotic regiem if you are concerned about your digestion and nutrient absorption health. - Have a great day!

Dried Beans – to soak or not to soak, that is the question

Please re-educate yourself - Only soaking in an acid medium, lactic acid fermentation, and sprouting will be more beneficial than simply cooking the food which will reduce the phytic acid (http://www.fao.org/agris/search/displ...)
Contrary , one study correlated decreased risk factors for osteoporosis (López-González AA, Grases F, Roca P, Mari B, Vicente-Herrero MT, Costa-Bauzá A (December 2008). "Phytate (myo-inositol hexaphosphate) and risk factors for osteoporosis". Journal of Medicinal Food 11 (4): 747–52. doi:10.1089/jmf.2008.0087. PMID 19053869)
