Is there any way to protect yourself from oxalates in those "safe starches"?

Some of the nicest non grain "safe starches" are high in them, taro absolutely filled with them, plantain a little bit less. Buckwheat also. Plantains taste kind of disgusting if boiled. I can feel the pain from oxalates in just a few days of eating those foods. This kind of not makes it very safe.

Will if you continue to eat foods high in oxalate get kidney stones,is that like easily treatable?

What happens when you top your taro with some yogurt or sardines? Calcium precipitates oxalate, making it insoluble in your GI tract.

You attribute all that to oxalates? Do you have evidence of elevated oxalate in your tissues/blood?

What do you mean you "feel the pain" of oxalates? Few people have real problems with oxalates. Do you have kidney problems?
