In Response To: eating (drinking) clay (Louise)
There was a scholarly article about 10 years ago in (I think)
the Journal of Chemical Ecology which said that
Dine (Navaho) can put some special clay in with a
variety of potato that contains higher levels of
alkaloids than the commerical kind.
The clay binds the alkaloids tightly enough so
it is ok to eat the (somewhat gritty) cooked mashed potatoes.
But how much and which kind of clay I don't know.
Thanks for having the candor to share what some of
the consequences can be!
I am wondering about the smell
since that usually means a shift in population of
microflora and different end-products of digestion.
I hope Peter has the time to comment.
