QUESTION: I'm a type A and we in California eat a lot of Mexican food. I haven't found many references to Mexican food ingredients in your book. For example, can a type A eat corn tortillas? or the herb cilantro an important ingredient in Mexican style food?
ANSWER: In general, corn tortillas are fine for most A's (Note: corn is more problematic for the rarer A2 subtype and a subtype NN in the MN system). However, I recommend you purchase tortillas processed with lime (the alkali mineral not the fruit). This processing method was used traditionally by most cultures depending upon corn as a staple. Coincidentally, it has been shown to favorably alter the protein profile of corn and I suspect might help denature some of the lectin activity. As far as cilantro, this food is neutral for A's and listed in the book by its other common name, coriander.
