I recently iodine-tested some raw carrots, frozen cooked green beans, roasted (plain) eggplant, boiled tomatoes, and boiled cauliflower. They all turned black instantly.

In the "starch content of foods" post in this forum it says that those vegetables have some starch but very low, 0 in most cases raw and just a little when cooked.

I know cooking foods can release the starches in them, but are these all to be avoided? Even raw carrots?

I haven't tested cauliflower but I don't think I have a problem with it. Have you tested it raw, or steamed?

Hi, Didier:

Cooked cauliflower caused a flare, cooked carrots to some extent, but not cooked eggplant. Cauliflower and carrots raw did not cause any problem, but then I seldom ate them in any large quantity.

It was very odd when eggplant came back so positive after the list is negative for it; I agree with Your issues there and it highlight 1) the need to test and 2) that actual experience is very important.

HEALTH,
John

My husband has trouble with all the veg you mention above - tomatoes, green beans, cauliflower and carrots whether raw or cooked. Actually except eggplant - he doesn't eat it so have never tested it.

We choose to trust his body's reaction and the iodine test above any starch content list.

You can always experiment on yourself once your symptoms improve and try these foods then and see if you react.

I seem to do ok with raw carrots & cauliflower, but I cannot eat nightshades(tomatoes, eggplant, potatoes). I was diagnosed with RA not AS so that might explain why I cannot eat nightshades.


Diet change has improved my RA. I feel best eating raw veggies and some fruits and avoiding grains, sugars, nightshades, beans and dairy. Sed rate dropped from 65 to 19, but it took over a year.
