Question about wheat & grains?

10 posts in this topic

I have been doing my research on lysine and arginine in foods, etc. It looks like wheat, brown rice, pasta, etc. are all relatively high in arginine. I am curious if folks know about other grains out there... I have not been able to figure out if white rice, barley, quinoa, spelt, etc. are also high in arginine. I am trying to figure out the "better" grains to select. I live in a place where rice is a staple...and am curious if perhaps white rice is ok.

Also, what about other starch choices? I see that potatoes are high in arginine. What about bread--looks like this might be one to avoid altogether. What are other good starch/grain choices out there?

If anyone has any resources, etc. about arginine and lysine in grains...or other carbs/starch, I would appreciate it. Thanks!

ONe of the charts someone recommended says that sprouted wheat bread and brown rice are low acidic. white rice and anything with wheat or white flour is acidic.

I can't give up ww bread. I need it for sandwiches for work

Amaranth, wild rice, millet ane quinoa are alkaline. I do not know what most of these are though.

Potatoes on the chart listed on this site have lysine higher than arginine.

I eat teff which is high in lysine. As far as I know it is the only grain which is high in lysine. I can eat two 100% teff muffins or pancakes with no problems at all.

I also eat carrots and parsnips.

All grains are high in arginine, except teff.

Sweet potatoes are almost half and half lysine/argnine.

hi you guys,

what is teff and where do you get it??

Also, which one is the lesser of 2 evils? Brown rice bread or whole wheat bread?

This website is helpful as a reference to some grains and seeds which are high in Lysine: All about grains

Most grains will have a large amount of arginine, but it can be okay in moderate amounts if balanced with a decent amount of lysine.

I dont think quinoa is good for us. I am trying to figure out if I can have white rice instaed of brown? and how to balance it out with veggies to fight the arginine.

Quinoa is good, it is alkaline and it is higher in lysine than arginine.

Brown grains are always better than white, however, almost all grains are higher in arginine than lysine so you have to be carefull. As with everything, enjoy it in moderation - eat lots of veggies at the same time and you should be good to go.

If you can find a sprouted grain bread (and other items), that is very good as it is alkaline, though I am not to sure what the lysine/arginine content is. I haven't had a problem with it and it is very tasty.

      @_Garden_girl You got to do what you need to do! It does sound like he knew he had it and took no precautions at all to protect you and that's very very fucked up! You have every right to be mad as hell..If he knew that he had it then it really is nothing short of sexual abuse to lie and not wear a condom. In my opinion, what he did is worse than stealthing as you did not consent to the risk of hsv (again, if he knew he had it). You do sound very level-headed and I would certainly encourage you to be composed. As you said, confronting him isn't going to change your diagnosis, but it may prevent it from happening to someone else...and more importantly, people who do bad things need to be held accountable and he should know what he did was wrong.  I rambled a bit...but say what you need to in order to move-on.  I'm sorry you're in this situation. You'll be fine

      Yeah, we're about to kill ourselves as our physical and emotional pain torture us every day while solution could be close... It's all about money after all and our governments don't care. Frustrating! http://aurx.com/2016/10/05/hello-world/

      The igG used to be very suspect and still seems to get it wrong many times. Certainly the survey parts are almost completely unreliable. Never said 1% prevalence...I'm not going to guess.. My point on this thread is only that it's silly to think that prevalence can be so high (on this thread some suggest everyone has genital hsv) and yet transmission so low (it's suggested transmission can be as low as 1% a year above).  They don't want to misestimate. Welcome to humanity where much is uncertain and many errors are made! We all can.

      My quality of life has been demolished. We now have to bear through the rest of our life with no prospect of escaping it. Every morning the first thing I think about is HSV, as I feel burning aching pain. It robs you of laughter, love, motivation,and any hope for a better future to work towards. Everything I do now, I'm teased of what I could have enjoyed if I didn't have this.

      Extremely unlikely that he would become infected from the activity you describe. Essentially zero chance. 
    • WilsoInAus
      Makes no sense. The studies are as the studies do. What flawed test are you talking about? What point are you making. The statistics are reliable and interpretable. If you want to believe that only 1% of people have HSV or whatever it is you're trying to say, fine, say it and move on. Why on god's earth would anyone want to misestimate the prevalence of any disease? Schoolboy ignoramus stuff mate - you can do better.
