Fermenting canned black beans to remove lectin?

Answered on August 19, 2014

I bought a big case of canned black beans shortly before going on a Paleo diet, only to realize they are not paleo frienfly and the lectins may have been a major source of my gastro stress. I've felt much better since I stopped eating them.

However, I do not like to waste and would like to try fermenting these black beans to remove the lectins. I've seen a post on this for lentils, but nowhere on the Internet can almighty Google find information on fermenting actual black beans (not the soy-turned-black beans).

Would it be possible to either acid or lactic ferment a can of black beans after they are thoroughly washed? If so, how? Same process as uncooked lentils?

The canning process may (?) prevent further lectin removal - assuming that was actually your problem. However I have successfully fermented both black beans and blackeyed peas using the exact same starter culture and process as used in making natto. The beans used were dry, not canned - something I have not tried - yet.......

Post-canning there's not much lectin content left.
