I sprout all of the beans you mentioned, and she doesn't have an issue with them.
Soaking over night and cooking the large beans is supposed to render them easy enough to digest, but I guess she just needs to be limited. She had only one today, so I'll see how the pooh smells. She seems to really love them.
She's also had black beans in the past, and they didn't seem to cause this, but I may have just not realized it at the time. Sometimes, instead of just plain kidney beans, I make a mix of several types of large beans. I think she tolerates this better, too, but I'll keep experimenting.
Her favorites always seem to cause an issue. Her very favorite thing in the whole world seems to be fresh pomegranite, which she makes a horrendous mess with, then it discolors her pooh for some time.
