    Apart from the processing debate,I once heard someone tell that you can better buy Grade C in a closed bottle than one in a seethrough glass bottle bc ligth changes/deminishes the mineral content.
    Is that true?

    That's funny, according to cronometer it is quite a poor source of manganese. Unless I am doing something wrong, 8oz is roughly 2.5% of the RDA. Please correct me if I am wrong, because I too am looking for a decent source of manganese.

    What do you guys think about beets, or beetroot juice?

    According to cronometer, beets are a very good source of manganese (in most forms).

    I guess they might be considered 'semi' Peat approved? The only reason I am interested in them, is because they offer an alternative option to getting lots of carbs, other than OJ, sugar, fruit and potato. I can visulize beets tasting good with meat. Another reason I am keen on beets is because they are no where near as high in vitmamin C, like OJ is. Which brings forward a possible alternative option when taking a carb source, with your meat (iron absorbtion, etc).

    good on paper, not many irritants...but its like kale for me, I just cant bring myself to eat them...theres just too much health dogma around 'beets' and 'beet kvass' and 'beet juice'...and its like, they don't taste that good...and give pink urine, so whats the big deal? But yea im just being fecicous...they aren't that bad, and are half way decent nutritiously

    I like to add cinnamon to my coffee. In one thread it is spoken of that small dosages of cinnamon/nutmeg may help to boost dopamine. Great that it's a high source of manganese.
    Cassia is high in coumarins, which are said to be a burden on the liver over time. I have ceylon cinnamon too, which is very low in these coumarins.

    How do you consume your cinnamon?

    What about white rice? One cup seems to provide 1/3 of manganese daily requirement. Three cups and you are set. Unless you don't consider white rice Peat-approved :P

    Oats have a lot of manganese. Eating some soaked oats once in a while should provide enough manganese

    Oats also have phytic acid, which has been shown to significantly reduce manganese absorption (as in a 50% reduction.)

    I put Ceylon cinnamon in my coffee too. It's so delicious!
    Also I add cinnamon to my tea infusions. Or sometimes just have cinnamon, honey, and hot water.

    You'd need to eat about 2.5 cups of grapes to equal the amount in 4 oz of the juice.
