I am type 0 but at the moment do not know if I am a secretor or non/secretor. I would like to start cooking with gram flour but am unsure if I can use this as I believe it comes from the lentil family which is bad for Os but is supposed to be made from chick peas which is ok - so I am slightly confused. The other problem that I have is finding the following melons in the UK are they known by other names here? Canang Casaba Crenshaw Christmas Spanish? Thank you for your advice. Sue
Hi, Sue ~~ Gram flour is made from chickpeas, otherwise known as garbanzo beans. It is an avoid for everyone except type O secretors ~~ so I'd put off using it until you find out your secretor status. Chances are that you're a secretor, so don't throw out that bag of flour yet!
Melons are a category for which it is much easier to identify the few avoids, so you can eat the rest with confidence! :-)
here's the dreaded "bitter melon,"
the dastardly "canteloupe"
and the beautiful but dangerous "honeydew."
