      Unfortunately as I get older I have found I encounter a bit more health related issues than I used to, even if my behaviors haven’t necessarily gotten worse. My morning ritual of a caramel macchiato had started to leave me feeling bloated and gassy by mid-morning. I determined that I could either stop drinking the latte I favor so much that at the place I get it they automatically start to make it for me when I walk in, or I could try to find some product to eliminate the possibility of getting gas before it even started. The catchy tagline “Take Beano and there’ll be no gas” had stuck in my mind and I decided before giving up my favorite breakfast I’d give the product a try.

      The product is a bit pricey depending on which size you choose to buy. I bought the smaller sized 30 tablet product for $7 since I wanted to try it and see how well it worked before committing to spending almost $20 for 100 tablets. You can swallow, chew or sprinkle 2-3 tablets directly on your food, but since it is chalky but tasteless in texture I personally prefer to swallow it with liquid. If I needed to take it and did not have access to water, I do appreciate that


      the product can be chewed and is still effective. The tablets are very small in size so anyone who has difficulty swallowing large pills will not have any issue taking this product.

      Beano also comes in meltaways form. This product differs from the tablets in that it is meant to dissolve on your tongue immediately prior to consuming food or drink. The meltaways are strawberry flavored, a stark contrast to the unflavored tablets, and do not have a chalky texture. The product dissolves very quickly and it comes in a smaller flip top package. This is ideal for someone who is often on the go or who wants to use the product discretely. I can identify with the fact that many people would not want it being apparent they are taking this product. Also, the meltaways are a bit more concentrated than the tablets. Only one is needed for the same effectiveness of 2-3 Beano tablets. The drawbacks to the meltaways is that they only come in packs of 15 and cost about $2-3 more than the 30 count tablets.

      The tablets are unique in that they seem to be the only product widely available on the market that actually stops gas from forming at all. Each tablet contains an enzyme called alpha-D-galactosidase obtained from Aspergillus niger mold. Beano ...


      • is meant to break down the complex carbohydrates in foods like fruits, vegetables, beans and whole grains to help them be easier to digest before reaching the colon which prevents gas before it forms. The makers of Beano claim that the body cannot digest and absorb some carbohydrates in the small intestine because of the lack of certain enzymes. The undigested food then passes through to the large intestine where bacteria can break down the food but produce gas in the process. The enzyme lacking in the small intestine is replicated with the enzyme available from taking Beano. Since Beano is naturally derived, it is not considered a drug. Even though Beano is derived from mold, it does state on their website it’s safe for someone with a mold or penicillin allergy to consume.

        I’ve found that the timing of taking Beano is especially important if I want to ensure the product works properly. If I take a sip or two of my macchiato drink the product does not work as well to eliminate gas. I now make sure to always swallow 2 tablets of the product immediately prior to taking my first bite of food or drinking my latte. Since I made sure to follow the product directions I have found that my tendency to hold gas by

        mid-morning is significantly reduced. I have to say that the product does not seem to work 100% of the time, even when following the timing of how to take the product, but it’s made a significant difference in how much better I feel without having to deal with bloating and abdominal discomfort for the majority of the day. If you or someone you know has issues dealing with gas and bloating I highly recommend this product.

        What I like most about this product is that I can get refills almost anywhere – drug stores, grocery stores and big box retailers like Target and Wal-Mart all carry the product. I now happily shell out $20 for the 100-count bottle of tablets. This product is especially great for anyone who may be trying to lose weight and as a result attempt to consume more fruits, vegetables, dairy, legumes and whole grains. Now we have the ability to lose weight without feeling bloated and gassy along the way. This product deserves a score of 9 out of 10 due to its availability, ability to be used by almost anyone, and reasonable price though it does not work 100% of the time. If you’re embarrassed by bloating, abdominal discomfort or flatulence on a regular basis it’s worth it to give this product a try.
