I guess fermentation is a sort of non heat based form of cooking. Heat eliminates toxic antinutrients and so do bacteria, so would bacterial fermentation be enough to convert toxic raw beans into a digestable food?

This is potentially a very interesting question. Can we tune our fermentation (temperature, salinity and bacteria, since humidity will always be 100%) so as to target specific toxins? In the case of beans we are mostly talking about protease... (more)

Sounds like a good way to get some E. coli O157:H7 into you. The absolute risk is probably quite small but the outcome if you did get food poisoning can be serious. E. coli O157 only evolved in the 1970's so it is not a bug that our ancestors had... (more)

Sean 23, I understand your stance and your passion, but be careful with how your phrase your comments.... Japanese and Polynesians eat raw fish. Inuits eat raw meat. They were human last time I looked.

Kefir should not taste yeasty or disgusting. It should have a creamy texture -depending on the proportion of culture added to milk-, it should have a fairly tangy taste and a fulfilling sensation upon ingesting it. Having said that, we shouldn??t... (more)
