Stop the world i want to get off!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am trying to locate a COMPLETE, unedited :P list of legumes and I came across canola on one of the lists.

SAY IT ISN"T SO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I had no idea and if it is a legume and I've cut out all legumes because they upset my tummy and make my joints hurt, it might explain a LOT.

Does anyone know? Does anyone (Patti- I'm willing to bet money on YOU!) have a complete list of legumes?

Thanks to anyone who helps me out. I wanna scream! Canola is in everything................

I believe canola is an oilseed, not a legume.

This is from Wikipedia: Canola was developed through conventional plant breeding from rapeseed[citation needed], an oilseed plant with roots in ancient civilization. The word "rape" in rapeseed comes from the Latin word "rapum," meaning turnip. [b]Turnip, rutabaga, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, mustard and many other vegetables are related to the two canola species commonly grown[/b][color=#FF0000]: Brassica napus and Brassica rapa. The negative associations with the word "rape" in North America resulted in the more marketing-friendly name "Canola".
I just found that from Wiki, I bolded and redded some info - I don't know if turnips etc are legumes, but that may help out a bit.

My gosh Bev--I don't know!!! But I did stop using it recently because I keep reading conflicting things. I use only olive oil, and Spectrum shortening. I keep a small bottle of expeller pressed Sunflower oil in the fridge so I have an unflavored oil when I need it.

Back to legumes--could this be? I tried to find a complete list of legumes last month when I suspected cashews. I was having some pretty unpleasant symptoms, and the only new thing was a nut mix of almonds, pecans (both of which are fine for me) and cashews. Well, it turns out they are a legume and my symptoms went right away when I stopped eating them.

If you come across a good, complete list--let me know!

On second thought, maybe Ursula has one....

Sorry, don't have a list, either. Canola is out for me anyway, because of high salicylate content. The only oil I can use is cold pressed sunflower oil.

OK- Well, let's start our own list of KNOWN legumes:

soy
soy products and tofu
peanuts
chickpeas/hummus
peas
beans (pinto, kidney, etc)

Also heard back from reference:
According to the Encyclopedia Brittanica, there are over 18,000 plants
in the legume family so a complete list is going to be very difficult
(and probably not very helpful). I did find a list of "common
legumes":

Legume:
Acacia;
Acacia Gum;
Alfalfa;
Arabic;
Black-eyed pea;
Carob;
Carob (St. John's Bread);
Cassia;
Chick Pea;
Field Pea;
Green Bean;
Green Pea;
Guar gum;
Jack bean;
Karaya Gum;
Kidney bean;
Lentil;
Licorice;
Lima bean;
Locust Bean Gum;
Mungo Bean;
Navy Bean;
Peanut;
Peanut oil;
Pinto Bean;
Soybean; Soybean oil/flour/lecithin;
Split Pea;
String Bean;
Talca Gum;
Tamarind;
Tonka bean;
Tragancanth Gum;
Urd
Flour.

There is another more complete list from the USDA at:


<http://199.133.10.14...b0mzr450j04y545)/
codesearch.aspx>

Type in the food code "41" and click on search and you'll get 7 pages
of legumes. I don't know whether this includes all of the common nuts
but it's worth taking a look.

I had a gluten-type reaction to Canola Oil, this is what I found earlier this week:

"...all known grain species that cause problems for celiac patients are members of the grass family. In plant taxonomy, the grass family belongs to the Plant Kingdom Subclass known as monocotyledonous plants (monocots). The only other grouping at the Subclass level is that of dicotyledonous plants (dicots). Some other species about which celiac patients have questions actually are dicots, which places them in very distant relationship to the grass family. Such species include buckwheat, amaranth, quinoa, and rape. The seed of the last plant listed, rape, is not eaten, but an oil is pressed from the seeds that is becoming commonly used in cooking. This oil is being marketed as canola oil."

The article quoted about canola and other grains is about a decade old and since then it has been found that ALL of the grains named are safe for people with celiac. Buckwheat, amaranth, quinoa, and rape were all examined and declared completely safe for celiacs about five years ago. REPEAT, this information is OLD and no longer applies. All celiac associations and the dietetic associations in the U.S. and Canada consider these grains safe.

So Canola oil is not made from rapeseed? Did that change? The article said Buckwheat, Amaranth, Quinoa, and Rape are VERY DISTANT from gluten - that didn't change either.

I just said I had a gluten-type reaction to it. But I don't know what is going on in my body. The article wasn't confirming a reaction - I just put it in to show that it wasn't a lentil but a seed.
