I've been eating kind of a paleo diet, ignoring the carbohydrate section. I decided to just follow SWAMI and go ahead and have some quinoa. After eating quinoa, my teeth were tingling for hours!!

Is this a good thing, or is this bad? Maybe all the phytic acid??

It is sometimes difficult to know whether a reaction is a positive one or not...  It may have been your body utilizing some of the food to stimulate a good action.  Usually, if a reaction is good, it will lessen over time, while a negative reaction usually keeps building with repeated occurrences.

I have read that quinoa, is to be soaked first,(like dry beans) then drained and new water added to cook it.  Removes the bitter taste, just wondering if the bitterness has anything to do with effects you had on your teeth.

It feels like the nerves are tingling, though I took chlorella before it for the first time. It may be the chlorella too.

I get tingling on the tongue and lips if I am having an allergic reaction to the food (mainly fruit skins). Don't know about teeth, though. I would isolate each to figure out which it is. I don't like the feeling, so I eliminate the source. Most recently, I had this reaction to soy milk which I thought was odd but haven't had any soy milk since.

Quinoa doesn't make my teeth tingle but it makes my tongue waggle!    I eat quinoa almost every day.


Every morning create your day.  If you don't, life will for you!
