I have a question that I feel a bit silly asking....

Are split peas a grain...or are they dried peas (sugar snap variety...etc) and considered a vegetable? And are they listed in Typebase or Swami?

Thanks for any help!

I had to look this up for myself.  split peas are in fact, dried English (garden) peas and would be classified with Vegetable Proteins in swami with "peas"  split pea is not listed as such.  

I thought they were a lentil guess not

They can certainly be used like lentils in recipes, but they're a pea  that's been dried and split- though maybe they're split and then dried? Not sure, and it doesn't really matter anyway.

interesting, topic, I've dried peas and they will break in half. So Ruth guess maybe the are dried first, they smash easily when fresh. Ok they can bounce like little balls when dried too.  :o Oh what  ::) fun

Split peas are legumes

Peas are much sweeter tasting than lentils.  I would never substitute one for the other in any recipe.

Chole, I know that the books call pea=lentils, but even your site note that there are many differences.  I think they are just one of the foods which they don't know where to put.  Nutritionally wise they are close with folate being only major difference. (much higher in lentils)

Doc. D seems to place them different as they are rated separate on swami. Making me believe they must be somewhat different.

Which book says this?  Is it a D'Adamo book?

These foods have very different ratings for type O.

Peas and lentils are classified with beans, ie, legumes

My SWAMI lists peas and lentils as vegetable proteins

This explains the difference between peas and lentils

Sorry C- sharp, poor wording, I was speaking on nutritional books in general, in Chloe's site and in information given to public.  D'Adamo's swami is my key, and as stated he has two separate ratings for peas and lentils.

What do you mean by "ratings"?

In my SWAMI both peas and lentils are listed as vegetable proteins. (I'm referring to my original
SWAMIx, the one I used prior to getting a professional version)

Does your SWAMI list these two food differently?

I consider them in the legume/bean family.
I even consider regular peas more of a bean than a veggie.  In our culture, we eat them as a veggie, but they are not exactly veggie IMO.

If I am hungry for something quick, I can eat a can of peas to get a little protein along with something green!  I think there are certain 'blended' foods out there that we cannot always classify.
But when I make split pea soup, I consider it a main course/protein dish.

SWAMI Xpress and SWAMI GenoType both list peas under vegetable protein.

In some of the blood type books and typebase peas are listed under vegetable.

ratings for me is just that lentils are and have always been an avoid for me.

peas have always been beneficial  

So "for me" that says there must be a difference between the two.

Of course they are different. Just look at them as well as taste them.  They also give different results.

I agree. I'm standing my ground. Peas in my pot. (not seven days old)  ;)
