I mentioned the books for the simple reason I don't know if and when the new SWAMI testing will actually take place. Therefore, the books can serve as a reference in the meantime, right?

You're referring to ume-su.
Ume-su is the plum's "vinegar".

It seems like the foods with the highest ratings (the foods most people, in general, are interested in) are different than the "one food you most want to add to SWAMI" meaning that everybody has their "favorite" they really really want to see included, and a  lot of these favorites are completely unimportant to most other people.

I'm starting to think Dr. D. needs a partner in Austrailia to research all the "not found in North America" foods the Australians have access to.

since I don't have swami yet I didn't think it would be correct for me to vote. but I'd like to know the ratings for sumac. it is now sold in powder form. I understand It is very high in Vit C and used by some native American as a kind of lemonade drink. This would fall in with the list of local growing foods

Sumac is unrated so would be considered neutral.

I suspect the complete listings of all native foods can't be done by one person. Dr. D'Adamo is currently writing a series of textbooks. The students of those textbooks may come up with local food lists for various areas- either their own BTD/GTD premade food lists, or some kind of SWAMI add-on with foods for the specific geographic area you select. (I mean, if I want to know about the values of native plants that grow in NYC, I don't also need the list of native plants that grow in Hawaii or New Zealand.)

Until then, we'll have to make due with the information currently available to us.

Quoted from ruthiegirl
I'm starting to think Dr. D. needs a partner in Austrailia to research all the "not found in North America" foods the Australians have access to.



Cristina and others were working on this. Their research is in this thread:

Quoted from C_Sharp
I set up the survey on my own. I was not asked to do so. It does not indicate any commitment by Dr. D'Adamo to include additional foods in SWAMI. I am not actually able to do the testing myself.


I think the survey is useful.

It is my view that the easiest foods to add would be those that have verifiable nutrient data sufficient to include in SWAMI, such as those foods already in the USDA Nurient Database (although some of those have insufficient data.) Foods that lack data cannot be analyzed. Lack of lectin, pollutant and other data may also make a food less desirable to rate.

Additionally, Dr. D may have other reasons for not including some specific foods that would tend to preclude their inclusion.

You are mentioning herbs that can be used as supplemental 'treatments' (herbal medicine), which for me any and all of those would be great. the quinoa, amaranth and there was something else-That c-sharp or lloyd said. wish I could go to CT for the 2011 iFhi, would love to get certified. Would go well with my HFPN coach/ sharecare.com. I could then talk about the BTD/GTD/SWAMI and help clear up some misinformation I have found.  I am joining the ranks of the virtual coaching world. I have been waiting for the right time and right organization. My certifying agency NASM has teamed up with Sharecare.com(Dr. Oz, etc) and HFPN. Will be quite interesting in February when they launch the Sharecare Coach platform.

Is this the original survey (i.e. exactly the same) or have foods been added?


In the first few weeks after December 11, 2010, I added any new foods that people requested.

But I quickly filled up the maximum number of choices allowed by surveymonkey.
I stopped adding foods to the survey when I was out of space.
