We have something we call malabar or vining spinach. It has no relation to spinach and is a very pretty vine that likes the heat. Maybe you have that there.yes,a lil' slimy when cooked..but not as slimy as okra or cactus is.
All foods contain lectins, but they are concentrated in seeds and nightshades. Some are more harmful than others, some are easier to destroy via cooking, soaking, sprouting and fermenting. And some are harder then others to bind up via food combinations.
Are they slimy?
to summarize briefly,
almost all staples(wheat,barley,rice), they say,contain lectin.so there's just one way out i suppose to eat it with things that undo it's negetive effect.
glyconutrients contain eight monosaccharides (that is, simple carbohydrates, or sugars)
if i ignore the poor review and stick to it optimistically , what i can figure out is fruits should do good.
why cant simple or refined sugar be any good?
as for mucilagenous foods,are jute leaves mucilagenous?
am not sure if its popular in the west or mid-east nations but south-east asians have them.they are slimy when cooked(sauteed).not sure.
there are few other leafy veggies which seem lil' slimy when sauteed.
