  • Did Paleo Man Process Flour?

    Some research may indicate that. Thoughts?

      sure...from acorns and cattail roots. Those type of sources. I've done it myself.
      Would I be putting a grain-feed cow on a fad diet if I took it out of the feedlot and put it on pasture eating the grass nature intended?

        Such a capacity for complex food plant processing could be a part of a Mid-Upper Paleolithic behavioral package (2, 23, 24), with consequences for diversified subsistence strategies and de- mographic changes in these populations (25).
        Here's one: good grief, don't these people write badly?

        I suppose that means:

        Grinding up the plants we listed would make them more digestible. This would mean they would be worth eating when other foods were in short supply. These foods might help bands of hunters stay alive and, indeed, multiply even in conditions of scarcity.

        I guess so.

          In these cases flour would certainly have been a hardship food. Should we edify and emulate that? Not necessarily.

            I've made flour out of common grass.

            It was interesting.

            Good find, though!

              Sure. The aboriginal people of what is now California didn't practice agriculture but they did process plants basically the same way that article describes.
