I used to suffer from terrible silent-but-deadly gas, and I never knew when it was going to strike. A house party, a movie theater, and a private kung fu lesson where there were no other suspects were the most embarrassing occasions. But now I’ve found a solution, a vegan gas relief for onions, and my excitement to share it overrides all my old embarrassment!
Several years ago, I did an elimination diet and realized that onions were the culprit. I always assumed it was beans because that’s what you hear, but it wasn’t. So, I avoided onions, most of the time successfully, even though I missed the taste. But my husband loves Indian food, and I kept running into dishes where the onions were blended in. So, whenever we’d go out for Indian food, I’d have to sequester myself in my studio after.
UNTIL! It came up in an internet forum, I can’t remember which, and someone suggested Beano for onions. I had thought that Beano was only for beans, but that’s not true! But, it turned out Beano might not be vegan. That’s when someone suggested my savior: VEGAN BEAN-ZYME!
Regular Bean-zyme uses a gelatin capsule, but the company makes a vegan formula – the packaging says “Vegan Formula” in small letters on the front of the bottle.
How does it work?
Some people are missing the enzymes necessary to break down complex sugars into more digestible ones, resulting in FLATULENCE. Vegan Bean-zyme works the same way as Beano. It contains the enzyme Alpha-galactosidase which is made from a food-grade mold. Apparently, this is just the enzyme I needed to digest onions! I’ve eaten a recipe that called for half an onion with no consequences!
I hope this post reaches someone out there with the same problem and makes their life a little less gassy.
