Does anyone know if panga (fish) is allowed for A's?

I used to eat goji berries regularly as they are a super food but recently learned that they are a nightshade.

I love goji berries and have eaten a lot of them for the past year, plus tinctures and capsules.  Then I realized they are a nightshade and stopped immediately.  Interestingly, some flare-ups of arthritis I've been having in recent months just stopped.

I would think that whats being marketed in Europe as panga, is probably a farm-raised catfish from Vietnam.

Eat them in modest amounts...  If you don't have problems, why worry?

If the nightshade family doesn't cause joint pain, enjoy them.  :D

I did not know that about goji berries, I have a few berries, as prefer to keep most other fruits away, due to fructose factors and other reasons.
goji I like, as nice yang quality, have some properties good for liver and eyes, inexpensive at Chinese grocery stores, red colour - good.
Inca berries I like, and some macqui berrie powder.

I personally wouldn't eat farmed fish from Vietnam, there are a lot of pesticede residues in the land and water there. :(

My diet allows some nightshades like tomatoes even tho other nightshades are not allowed. So maybe the non-cookie-cutter concept applies here too.

thanks for letting me know about Inca berries, I'll still have some berries in moderation, and possibly cook some as TCM theory recommends for people with kidney or spleen yin deficiency syndromes, as too much raw not good until organs become stronger. Love berries for antioxidants, easy to digest, vitamin C, more yang quality due to grown in temperate climates, some have good amounts of omega 3 oils, and fibre, and come under sweet juicy tastes which soothes / balances middle organs.
