Quoted from C_sharpGenoma Derma-Yes
Often grapes are an avoid because they are high in sugar, have mold on the skin and encourage bacterial overgrowth.
This would not seem to be a problem with grape seed extract which is derived from a part of the grape that is not normally eaten and would not have the above problems.
Quoted from SeraffaHello Wanthanee;
I agree that there are typos in the books and maybe SWAMI but before I SWAMIed I was eating the Egyptian style Fava that looks brown with a black mark on its side.Then for Explorer I had to get rid of it. Then I SWAMIed. Fava reappeared on my SWAMI as beneficial and I have never had a problem feeling ill eating this kind of Fava. You can taste how much good iron is in it when you eat it. Enjoy!
Quoted from wanthaneeI was wondering if there’s a difference between the names Broad bean fava and fava bean. Is this the same thing? . . . Also, there is an item named Genoma Derma.
One thing to remember when using the fresh or mature (dried) bean, though, is to remove the 'second' skin. It was noted in the British Journal of Nutrition that the actual seed coat (testa), the thin membrane surrounding the bean, contains appreciable levels of anti-nutritional factors, i.e., trypsin inhibitors, functional lectins, condensed tannins, pyrimidine glycosides, et cetera, which are able to negatively affect digestibility of the beans by inhibiting enzymatic activity.
Quoted from LloydSome condensed tannins are sold for their health benefits, e.g. flavanols. And so on.... ;D
Hi wanthanee, I double-checked Purdue University's extensive plant database and the common names broad bean and fava or faba bean (for Vicia faba L.) are used interchangeably, but refer to the same plant. Thus, there's no difference. I also checked my SWAMI food list and they [broad bean/fava] are listed together (fortunately, for me, they're a superfood ... although I can no longer eat them whilst having a glass of Chianti at the same meal ;)).
As for the Genoma Derma, in addition to what C_sharp said, I noticed that Doctor D'Adamo also lists this product under the "Right for All Types" category. So, it's fine. :)
Quoted from wanthanee"Chianti wine" Wow.. How does it taste? Is it sweet? I like wine which has a sweet taste. Wow..I would like to try that one. So, are you saying you can not eat Fava bean with wine?
Chianti is an Italian red wine. A young Chianti, especially one made with a higher blend proportion of the Malvasia bianca (white) grape to the red Sangiovese grape will have a predominantly floral bouquet with undertones of raspberry, cherry and plum. As for fava beans with Chianti, I was making a joke in reference to the movie 'Silence of the Lambs.' During the movie, the main antagonist, Hannibal Lecter (a murderous cannibal, as well as a genius level psychopath), commented about a census taker that had once tried to test him, saying, "I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti." :o
Quoted from GoldieYour English is better than many in the US.. just write.. we will figure it out.. ;D
Quoted from GoldieIn Swami you need only a few answers to make it work.. it helps to know the blood type positive or negative..
your weight and hight, what ever else you can answer.. Swami will adjust to what you give it.. and it is on computer to print the food list for shopping.., but the books are nearly as good..
What book are you following? I forgot..
RH does not matter, but it will tell you about your ancestry.. .. as far as I know that will give some answers but that is all..
More important is the test for secreter or none secreter.. that matters more.. You might be able to have your doctor check it for you in a laboratory he uses.. I will try and remember the name.. it escapes me right now.. sorry
