QUINOA SMELL TEST – I AM THE SECRET INGREDIENT:
This article promotes demand for development of a ‘POLYAMINE’ Database for assessing dietary intake of Polyamines(Spermine, Spermidine, and Putrescine). Reducing concentration of Polyamines in the body pool may slow the Cancer process as Polyamines are required for human cell as well as Cancer cell growth. Because dietary Spermine, Spermidine, and Putrescine contribute to the body pool of Polyamines, quantifying them in the diet is important. Development of this Polyamine Database provides a means of estimating Polyamine intake and contributes to investigations relating Polyamines to Cancer.
“Griffin James Quinoa Challenge Award” recognizes the services of Griffin James, an expert in Food Retail industry. Griffin is passionate about food and he encourages people to know about food and discover the uniqueness of food that man consumes. The ‘Quinoa Challenge’ primarily involves a ‘Smell Test’. It requires preparing a small serving of hot, Quinoa Porridge using Ancient Harvest Organic Quinoa Flakes and smelling the Quinoa Porridge while it is steaming hot. The Winner of Quinoa Challenge has to correctly name the Primary Odor generated by Quinoa. The Quinoa Challenge takes about 90 seconds. I am pleased to announce that I am the First Winner of “Griffin James Quinoa Challenge Award” in Michigan, USA. On behalf of Griffin James, this Award was presented on May 18, 2014 in a private function held at Whole Foods Market, Ann Arbor. The Company has not issued a Press Release about the grant of “Griffin James Quinoa Challenge Award.” However, the uniqueness of this discovery is duly recognized and the Cash Reward is reported to the Internal Revenue Service as required by Income Tax laws. Most possibly, I could be the First Winner of ‘Quinoa Challenge’ in the entire World. I have not read any articles, or stories about people who may have correctly identified the Primary Odor generated by Quinoa. Please share your Quinoa Flavor experience. The Primary Odors include the following and this listing varies according to different classifications of Odor:
1. SWEATY, 2. SPERMOUS, 3. FISHY, 4. MALTY, 5. URINOUS, 6. MUSKY, 7. CAMPHORACEOUS, 8. PEPPERMINTY, 9. PUTRID, 10. PUNGENT, 11. FLORAL, and 12. ETHEREAL.
QUINOA CHALLENGE – QUINOA SMELL TEST – FIRST WINNER IN MICHIGAN :
After discovering the ‘Essence of Man’ by simply smelling a Quinoa preparation, I started encouraging others to take the ‘Quinoa Challenge’. I was even willing to pay for the price of the Quinoa Flakes to give others a chance to experience this unique aroma, flavor, scent, or smell of aromatic chemical compounds made by both plants and animals. It must be noted that plants and animals synthesize similar chemical compounds but they may not make a recognizable sensory impact. Chenopodium quinoa is the only exception in the biological world where the plant makes a product that smells like Semen because of the similarities of chemical composition.
I am hopeful that this discovery made by Quinoa Smell Test is as significant as the ‘Discovery of America’ by Christopher Columbus. I am demanding inclusion of Polyamine content under Nutrition Facts and Nutrition Information of all food items sold by Food industry. Dietary Polyamines are of nutritional significance as high intake may increase risk of Colorectal Cancer.
