There are some ingredients which if you put in beans when cooking can affect the liver.
The liver is the largest organ in the body and it plays a vital role such as food detoxification and fat emulsification.
Some of the ingredients that some people add to beans when cooking it is potash (Kawu). This potash help reduce the time for cooking the beans but it also affects our sysyem.
