Split Pea Soup and Tummy

Can aanyone tell me if this soup gives you a upset tummy?
I made some last week, and I have had more gas than I can handle :oops:
I am prone to food causeing this and am scard to try it again. :cry:
It has taken me 5 days to get back to normal with meds.
I love this soup too. I put ham, carrots and potato in it. Great on a cold day.
Thanks, Deana

If you do not regularly eat beans, yes. Your system doesn't have the enzymes to digest this properly. You need to train your body to accept the beans by regular consumption, starting with just a little bit at a time.

Beano pill or drops helps with digestion if you don't want to try the regular consumption route.

Then again you could have just had a tummy problem unrelated to the split pea consumption. I'd be concerned enough to pick up some Beano for the future, though.

Finally, I find undercooking does seem to bring on more....ah.....gas problems.
Thank you so much, I did not know the split peas did this. I will get the beano. It has been days the I had to undo my jeans LOL.

Well, that explains a decade's old family mystery. One of my family's favorite albeit rarely made (lots of work) recipes is traditionally accompanied by yellow split pea soup which is then traditionally accompanied by an assortment of gastric events and so on you don't talk about in mixed company :oops: :oops:

Which reminds me, is my mother the only female on the planet who GIGGLES when she gets caught in fragante delicato if you will? I thought that was a male thing. I'm concerned because I've heard that the older you get the more a daughter becomes like her mother and I've already started hearing her laugh and her words come out of my mouth. I'd rather not take that tradition any further. Already I let one - eh - go just the other day and it was dramatic enough to send the foster dog fleeing for her life, probably afraid I was going to blame HER, which, sad to say, made me laugh. I fear I'm on a path of no return here... 8O

Next time the family gets together for the pea soup, pass the Beano around the table and simply say, "family tradition ends here."

I remember when a brother had a vacation condo not far from where my DH and I lived. When brother and wife brought friends for vacation, we took them to a good Mexican restaurant. None were used to eating beans. Guess that night it was a night long wind instrument performance thru the condo. For my very straight laced SIL to mention it, it must have been something! :lol:

Actually, I'm off the mark a bit about developing the enzyme:

Quote:
Many edible beans, including broad beans and soybeans, contain oligosaccharides (particularly Raffinose and Stachyose), a type of sugar molecule also found in cabbage. An anti-oligosaccharide enzyme is necessary to properly digest these sugar molecules. As a normal human digestive tract does not contain any anti-oligosaccharide enzymes, consumed oligosaccharides are typically digested by bacteria in the large intestine. This digestion process produces flatulence-causing gases as a byproduct. This aspect of bean digestion is the basis for the children's rhyme "Beans, Beans, the Musical Fruit."

Some species of mold produce alpha-galactosidase, an anti-oligosaccharide enzyme, which humans can take to facilitate digestion of oligosaccharides in the small intestine. This enzyme, currently sold in the U.S. under the brand-name Beano, can be added to food or consumed separately. In many cuisines beans are cooked along with natural carminatives such as anise seeds, coriander seeds and cumin.

Other strategies include soaking beans in water for several hours before mixing them with other ingredients to remove the offending sugars. Sometimes vinegar is added, but only after the beans are cooked as vinegar interferes with the beans' softening.

Fermented beans will not produce most of the intestinal problems that unfermented beans will, since bacteria can consume the offending sugars.


I know I cook beans but first soak them then pour off the water. Then I bring them to a boil for a bit, let the foam rise and then pour off the water, or as I tell myself, drain off the F**ts. The third water is what I cook the beans in and they are generally "air" free. That would be difficult with split peas as they aren't normally soaked before hand, but it might help to precook them a bit and drain off the water.

My daughter giggles when she does...but she's only 7 months old! :lol:
Read about the cabbage being a culprit too.
Wouldn't you know, I just put a pork roast and cabbage in the crock pot..... :oops:
Dawn, as cold as it is back there, you need something to keep you warm! Your dogs aren't going to mind.....normally. Some get offended and leave the room :lol:
Last week I ate chili with beans 3 days in a row and my digestive system complained LOUDLY! Beans, peas, they all have a lot of fiber and can produce lots o' gas. Beware!

BTW, I heard on the news we are going to get through January with the temp staying below freezing the entire month. :evil:
Oh NO! Mr. Perfect is a gas bag........... :cry: Well, I guess nobody and no dog is perfect!

Chewie, save your best for carting and sledding days when Mom is right behind!
