BEAN FLOUR

Bean Flour

Elaine writes:
Since writing that presoaked bean flour would be OK if used sparingly, unfortunately, some have begun using it a lot. I am very concerned about the fact that the molecules of starch in beans, when not hydrated properly, will cause problems, and am afraid to advise using it as a substitute for the ground nut flour. If you are satisfied with your progress, then the proof of the pudding is in the eating. I still do not advise substituting the bean flour in all the recipes. "Sparingly" mean using only a little bit.

The book should be required reading for anyone with Crohn's disease and we wish gastroenterologists would read it as well. The diet is a real alternative to the drug based therapy from the medical community.
