There are many tricky things about assessing the oxalate content of vegetables. One is that if you use a chart that talks about volume measurement, it can end up inaccurate because people chop up or stuff a cup measure in a different way. For... (more)

I had to switch from sweet potatoes to plantains for this very reason. Oxalates seem to mess me up bad (achy joints, bad sleep).

I believe the problem is usually the reverse. Oxalates don't usually cause leaky guts, but leaky guts can really cause oxalate problems. Leaky guts allow an increased amount of oxalate into the blood stream and this causes excess inflammation... (more)
