Beano Extra Strength

beano® Tablets

beano® Tablets can be chewed or swallowed with water. Just take beano® as directed when you're eating meals with foods that can cause gas.

How it works

beano® Tablets contains a natural enzyme that breaks down the complex carbohydrates found in many foods, making them easier to digest so they don't cause gas.*


How to use beano® tablets:

  1. Use for the right problem: Use beano® if you experience the symptoms of stomach gas caused by many healthful foods.
  2. Use with the right food: beano® Tablets prevent symptoms caused by a variety of foods including:
    • Veggies like broccoli, lettuce, peppers and carrots
    • Proteins like beans and peanuts
    • Whole grains like whole wheat and oat bran

  3. Use at the right time: Take right before your first bite of problem food.
  4. Use the right amount: Swallow or chew 2-3 tablets for a typical meal.
