RODRIGUES, Josana de Abreu et al. Correlation among water soaking and cooking time of bean cultivars. Cienc. Rural [online]. 2005, vol.35, n.1, pp.209-214. ISSN 0103-8478.

The purpose of this work was to evaluate the behavior of bean cultivars regarding water soaking test and cooking time as well as the possible correlation of these variables to identify bean lines with high cooking capacity. A factorial of two cultivars (TPS Nobre and Pérola) and different times (2 to 18 hours of soaking) in a completely randomized design, with three replications, was conducted. Soaking capacity was increased over time up to 13h07min for TPS Nobre and 13h12min for Pérola cultivar. Cooking time was reduced after 12h49min of soaking for both cultivars. There was a high and negative correlation between water soaking and cooking time.
