Although I haven't got the Swami yet. I'm assuming that these aren't in. Correct me if I'm wrong. Popular fish varieties from countries other than the US and Canada. Here in Australia for example we have;

Barramundi
John Dory

Unless the Swami eventually develops into Country specific versions.

Hard apple cider, which can be made either in a gluten-free way without grain or using barley. I think grain-free/gluten-free tends to be typical in the US and France.

There are some ciders where barley is used. I don't know if other grains are ever used in the fermentation. Since I have celiac, I have to check the labels and have read that some have barley. It probably isn't that common for barley to be used. Sometimes barley is also used in making sake.

I'm late, never mind (in the version I know, the old man was planting a fig tree :) ).

There's this wonderful popular French Tomme cheese.

It has been a top priority for me at the cheese stall for many years, and I've hardly touched it since on BTD, Feb 2006, so as Pecorino is now a Swami superfood, I would be extatic to have also the Tomme back.

Lemon verbena or Lemon beebrush, Aloysia triphylla

and

Lemon verbena oil

Lemon verbena adds a lemony flavor to fish and poultry, vegetable marinades, salad dressings, jams, puddings, and beverages. It is used to make herbal teas and sorbet. It has anti-Candida albicans activity.

The major isolates in lemon verbena oil are citral (30-35%), nerol and geraniol.

Other names for Lemon Verbena are Verbena triphylla L'Her., Verbena citriodora Cav., Lippia triphylla, Lippia citriodora, and Aloysia citriodora (Cav.) Ort.

Kai Lan is different from Chye Sim, yes. It's another green leafy vegetable. Kang Kong is common too, different again. This is a listing of local produce, the leafy veg is on page 4. http://www.freshdirect.com.sg/download/productlist_vegetables.pdf

Bitter melon and bittergourd I believe are the same - does that mean the tea has the same properties as the fruit? The juices and the fruits are often different, so I wondered if the tea might be different too.

I was just coming to ask this! For now I'll consider it a black dot (probably a neutral, but I won't eat it too often just in case it's problematic) but I'd like to know for certain!

Posted by: ruthiegirl, Sunday, January 24, 2010, 10:28pm; Reply: 72
Two more foods I'm wondering about: potato starch and beet kvass.

Potato starch may not have the same rating as whole potatoes because it doesn't have any proteins or fats in it. I doubt it's a wholesome food, but I would like to know if it's a complete avoid, as whole potatoes are, or if it's a neutral or a black dot (meaning that I could safely consume it during Passover when we use potato starch in so many baked goods.)

Beet kvass probably has a very different rating than whole beets- it's fermented, it has probiotics in it, and it doesn't have the fiber and it's probably much lower in carbs as well. The beet kvass is made by coursly chopping beets, adding salt water, letting it ferment  about 3 days, and then drinking the liquid (which turns  bright pink.)

pike perch / zander (Is it mentioned in fish list somewhere? I haven't found.)

vendace (Coregonus albula, small freshwater whitefish in the family Salmonidae, usual in Finnish lakes)

Baltic herrings (especially big ones) contain dioxines. So do you recommend still eating it seldom, since herring is diamond superfood for me?

halloumi cheese, especially when completely of sheep's milk?

If quinoa is slight superfood for me, is it good anyway independent of its color (white/red/black)? And what about red rice (rice usually also slight super)?

spruce sprout

is wild bilberry parallel to blueberry?

Spring Greens (used to be known as Pamfrey) available in northern Ireland .

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spring_greens

I love this stuff but don't eat it any more because it is a sort of cabbage. (an avoid for me) however doing a bit of research shows me that it may be a bit like kale. kale is superfood for me but not as easy to get here. i can only get it pre sliced which is not ideal - i am going to start growing it myself when i get a chance-.

so.... is spring greens okay for me , can it be classed as a kale or is it indeed a cabbage.

ancho, pasilla, and chipotle pepper

is cocao butter the same as cocao?

When foods are added to SWAMI, will they just appear?  How does it work?

Do you think Umeboshi paste would have the same value as Umeboshi vinegar?  Normally I would think a vinegar would be different, but the paste is pickled/fermented/whatever as well

Pickled herring -- I wonder if it would have a different value than fresh herring, as it is usually pickled in a vinegar-based brine.

Arrowroot (the Rhizomes) ... nutritious starchy tuber ...

Quoted Text
ARROWROOT, Canna edulis

An edible canna in similar in apperance to its close relative the ornamental Cannas. Another of the Ancient Inca food crops, it was one of the first plants to have been domesticated in the Andean region. A popular crop in the market place in Peru and Ecuador.

The large round red rhizomes can be eaten raw, cooked as you would a potato or used as a flour and thickening agent. Excellent carbohydrate, the starch is easily digested and is a promising food source. The young shoots can also be eaten as a green vegetable.

The plant is easy to plant, to grow and to harvest. While the tubers multiply prolifically in deep rich friable soil, they are the most hardy of all the tuber crops and grows well in soils where most other tubers will not grow. Has few problems with pests and diseases. Can be harvested after 6 months. Will tolerate heat and light frosts.

Water Chestnut Flour.  Saw this in an asian market recently.  I may try some next time to make a pancake.

And there is a vegetable that looks like a large taro. malanga  

Someone posted this on a forum about it:

Quoted Text
....root sold in some groceries that looks similar to taro called malanga. Sometimes malanga is referred to as a large taro. The root looks like a large taro, & will grow & leaf out as a large taro, but it is a different plant.

broccolini is a green vegetable similar to broccoli but with smaller florets and longer, thin stalks. Although often misidentified as young broccoli, it is a cross between broccoli and kai-lan, Chinese broccoli. A natural hybrid of the cabbage family Brassica oleracea italica x alboglabra, it was developed by the Sakata Seed Company of Yokohama, Japan, with the name Chinese kale or gai lan. Broccolini's flavor is sweet, with notes of both broccoli and asparagus

I see coffee having certain disadvantages, and touted also as having advantages..what to differentiate in basic explanations.

Exactly what about coffee? the beans the processing of the beans into (instant) coffee,  
and a distinction between coffee and decafe, water washed or chemical washed,

and a much more specific distinction to Cream versus non dairy cream..

thanks..

The rating for Venison covers Moose...
The most common large game meat is venison, which, though commonly thought of as deer, is a term that broadly includes the meat from elk, moose, reindeer, caribou and antelope.
