Talk:Beano (dietary supplement)
|WikiProject Alternative medicine|
I have changed some of the more dogmatic and unjustifiable statements contained in this article, but it is still an advert.--Anthony.bradbury 17:41, 4 June 2006 (UTC)
Isn't Beano just a brand name?
As far as I can tell, Beano is just a brand-name for alpha galactosidase - at least there are other products that purport to be the same substance, "Bean-Zyme" being one of them. 184.108.40.206 20:23, 4 October 2006 (UTC)
- Well, even if that may be, individual brand names for the same thing deserve articles, so long as they were the original or have one of the biggest market shares. Both factors apply to this brand. -- Zanimum 19:00, 20 November 2006 (UTC)
Is this product only in the US, I've never seen it in UK stores.

Reference 2 is broken. "GlaxoSmithKline Completes the Purchase of Block Drug for $1.24 Billion -prnewswire - January 16, 2001" URL for http://www.cyperus.com/ is invalid. I am not sure how to fix references. It is broken here too http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GlaxoSmithKline —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 02:22, 1 August 2010 (UTC)
- Fixed in both locations. Thanks for the note. In this case I just googled the first few words of the title to find the new URL. Adrian J. Hunter(talk•contribs) 03:45, 1 August 2010 (UTC)
Wikipedia is not an instruction manual on beer browing
The paragraph should be significantly altered so that it no longer reds like one, including removal of the absurd "caution" - not to Beano users, but home brewers. Ludicrous.
Generic form of Beano?
If one does a web-search for "Is there a generic form of Beano?" you will see that there is some confusion as to whether or not there are generic forms of Beano. The main article should answer that question. Also, the main article should probably go into some detail explaining if a dietary supplement can infact be patented - and if by doing so it is no longer a dietary supplement but a drug. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 00:27, 28 September 2011 (UTC)
"... a deal expected to take effect in 2012."
So, if digestive enzymes break raffinose down sooner than it otherwise would, does that adjust the calorie balance of beans that you actually absorb? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 21:27, 26 March 2015 (UTC)
