Well, I just ordered:

Guava jelly - Guava is a diamond food

Prickly Pear Cactus jelly - Geno-Harmonic

Just Persimmons - Geno-Harmonic

Crushed Watermelon Seed Tea and Watermelon Seed Extract - Geno-Harmonic

I realize that Jelly is not the best form to have the fruit in, but I will see how this works out!

In regards to prickly pear you may want to look in the fruit section of your SWAMI (It is there in mine). Since prickly pear was not listed for hunters in the book I assumed it was neutral (is listed for other GenoTypes). In typepase prickly pear tunas are neutral for O secretors.


I was thinking of eating the pads not the fruit.  They are more like a vegetable and are sold as nopalitos in Mexican stores, or can be prepared at home.  The fruit, as far as I know, is mainly made into jelly, and it's a real job to make it.  Not for me to make, esp. as a neutral, and it's not a genoharmonic for me.

Quoted from C_Sharp
Pectin is a plant fiber (comes from cell walls).

It is usually used as a gelling agent when making jams and jellies.

So it might be with things related to canning.

It is usually sold as a powder. It can also be found as an ingredient
in some commercial food products.

It is sometimes used as a source of dietary fiber, so you can also find it with supplements.


Is modified citrus pectin considered the right type of pectin?

Like could I use this product?

Chloe, I use a supp., apple pectin. I assume that "fruit" pectin, means the pectin of a fruit.

If the type of pectin is not specified it is usually derived from citrus. I would select a pectin source that came from a plant on your diet.

I generally use the pads and not the fruit. When I asked earlier, Lola said to use the value for the fruit.

If you buy canned nopalitos, watch for citric acid and/or vinegars.

I found this in the health food store today. Is it okay to use?   It's made from
citrus pectin but is there something wrong with citrus pectin?...I can have grapefruit, lemons and limes....but it's not specifically mentioned what citrus this particular product is made from.

http://www.barryfarm.com/nutri_info/thickeners/Pectin.html


And here is Sure-Jell

http://www.amazon.com/Sure-Jell-Certo-Fruit-Pectin-6-Ounce/dp/B001E560U4

And Certo is similar to Sure-Jell but here are the ingredients in Certo
Ingredients: WATER, FRUIT PECTIN, LACTIC ACID AND CITRIC ACID (ASSIST GEL), POTASSIUM CITRATE (CONTROLS ACIDITY), SODIUM BENZOATE (PRESERVATIVE).

Would I want to keep ingesting a lot of sodium benzoate?  I don't think so.
And when an ingredient list just says "fruit pectin", how would I know what
fruits were used?

If I throw some blueberries in a pot and cook them a few minutes and then refrigerate, doesn't the pectin in the berries start to create a natural gel?  Isn't
eating lots of blueberries that gelled the same thing as using a commercial fruit pectin?

Is it possible to make your own pectin?

I'm still not sure what to buy.

I read somewhere that you can make pectin out of apples.....
don t know if it s fermenting or boiling in their own juice.....
why not google it and find out....you might stumble upon a recipe.

Never mind, got it!
And love it!

So. Here's a genoharmonic that might be pretty good: stir-fry turkey with asparagus, lime, onion, and gojiberry juice.....and maybe chopped plums.

What is the best way to enter how you want SWAMI to compute your geno harmonic
foods?  

I've got all these options and have no clue which way I'd want to swing the results.

What would we have to know about ourselves to be making a choice?

It would seem to me that I'd want to enhance global methylation.

Or histone function?

And what would be broad genotrophic mean?

Or ubuiquinylation?

I chose compute best.

But I also chose compute best for category size and frequency and wound up getting
1/2 tsp of ghee 4x a week.

How did you guys fill out your SWAMIs?

What should I have told SWAMI?

Unless you have a specific reason for specifying a particular choice, I recommend choosing "Computer Best"  Then the computer will look at the rest of your data and select the option that it calculates is best for you.

I've been looking at squirrels a whole lot differently since they showed up on my harmonic food list  


There have been rabbits in my back yard lately, and they are definitely grass-fed.

Camelina Oil is a polyunsaturated vegetable oil, with high levels of omega-3 fatty acids. High in antioxidants (Vitamin oil).

It does not spoil rapidly.

Can someone answer this question for me please.

When I choose a geno harmonic food combination, what is supposed to be the
amount of foods I choose?  Is two or three going to work at all?  I don't quite
understand how this works....Are two better than none?  Are two neutral foods
which equal one geno harmonic combination better than eating all diamond foods?

I  really just want to know how many geno foods would belong in the most minimum of combinations.  

Am I striving to eat the entire list at once?

as I see it, you chose what s on the left, and combine it with one or as many foods that are on the right listing.....
