BTD Forums  /  SWAMI Xpress  /  Summary tables only from Food Choices
Posted by: Cristina, Saturday, October 17, 2009, 5:15am
This thread contains Summary tables based on information in the 'Research on food choices for all' thread.

This thread makes it easier to keep up with the status of our research.  Any comments about the contents or possible additions or corrections to these tables are expected to be posted under the thread 'Research on food choices for all'. Only Summary tables get posted here.

Although the research started initially as food choices for Australians, it has developed into food choices for everyone in accordance to the listed foods in our respective food lists, be it BTD, GTD or SWAMIs.

In other words, if you know of any food items that have their special name in your local area, whether you are from Australia or anywhere else in the world, post your findings in 'Research on food choices for all' and we will include it in the tables, relating it to your country (or specific area).

This then can be used as a quick reference for not only us (users) but also for 'the makers', those responsible to keep our food lists updated.

So far we have created 3 tables:

Equivalent Food choices - Lists local names for food  (except fish and seafood) that are listed in Typebase, GT book or Swamis.

Non Equivalent Food choices - Food items we have identified as being popular in our local areas, but our research shows no exact match to our food lists.  These are eventually added to the 'Food to be added to Swami' thread, but in the meantime the referenced posts explain what are we doing with that food item, where we found it and any other information about them.

Equivalent Seafood choices - Lists local area names for Fish and seafood that match food items in our BTD, GT book or Swami Lists.

Also notice that most food items have a Reply No. referenced under the comments/testimonials column.  These Reply nos referred to the replies under the research thread 'Research on food choices for all'.

When we do our research about any food items listed in these tables, we try to post as much information as possible to support our decisions.  These include relevant web links, quotations and our own testimonials about a food in question. So those posts can be very informative. (book2)

:) :)

C_Sharp has kindly volunteered (clap) to do the updates to the tables for me, so I do not have to create so many posts due to the 72hr deadline normal users have. So the posted summaries will have the latest info from the research thread and there will only be the same 3 or 4 posts with the summary tables only.  Thanks C_Sharp :) :)

This update is up to Reply 423 in the Research of Food choices for All.

These are the fish and seafood species listed in Typebase database (and the descriptors therein) as well as listed in GTD and or Swamis food lists.  This tabled summary only includes the species we have discussed so far.

For some of these species, we have found local equivalents, and listed those accordingly.  We left blank the ones we could not find equivalents for.  Relevant country location is listed, so if your country is not listed, but you want to assist btders compatriots by providing us with your local equivalent nomenclature, join us on the research thread.

The reply numbers refer to the Replies as posted in the Research of Food Choices for All thread.
