I misplaced the recipe forthe alpiste i remember that it called for two tbs in water overnight and in the morning to blend it and drik it . Is this correct? Am i missing somethng?
This message is for George Jibilian owner of Alpiste.com…
I have screencapped and documented the dozens of articles and comments you have spread throughout the internet claiming that “certified hairless” or “silica hair free” canary seed is the only seed you should be buying because those silica hairs have a “similar structure to ABESTOS”.
This unique polished variety is (of course) conveniently available through your website.
I’d like to invite you to please post your irrefutable third party evidence of these unsafe seeds with the “hairs made of 98% silica” on this message board within (5) business days.
I’ll be honest, I suspect you are employing a fraudulent marketing scare tactic that is 100% illegal under federal FTC laws for nutritional supplements. I urge you to read the FTC’s advertising guidelines:http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/policystmt/ad-food.shtmhttp://www.keytlaw.com/FTC/Rules/ftcadfaq0610.htm
It would be fair if you were marketing 100% organic, pesticide free, human grade alpiste or canary seed (Phalaris canariensis). But scaring people with information that I personally have not been able to substantiate after several days of research, is just plain evil, and like I mentioned, a federal crime.
I would be happy if you can prove your claim, and then demonstrate with verifiable proof, why your seeds are superior.
I would appreciate it if you would not slander us.For the record...Silica Spicules in Canary GrassR. H. NEWMAN and A. L. MACKAYImperial Cancer Research Fund, Lincoln's Inn Fields London WC2A 3PXDepartment of Crystallography, Birkbeck College Malet Street, London WCIE 7HXAccepted: 20 July 1983 The hairs occurring on the surface and the persistent bracts of the fruits of canary grass (Phalaris canariensis) consist of opaline silica spicules emerging from the abaxial epidermal cells. They are approx. 500 µm long and taper from a diameter of 15 um at the base to a tip radius of 0.3 µm. These spicules are found in the diet of people living in areas in which very high incidences of oesophageal cancer occur. The microstructure of cleaned spicules is complex and differes from that of mineral opal and also from tabashir, a plant opal occurring in bamboo, which is a relatively unstructured emulsion of silica particles.
