Are you asking because you eat a Primal/Paleo style diet? If so, it may be worth mentioning as it will influence the answers. The answer suggesting barley malt for example would not be acceptable, as barley contains gluten which the Primal/Paleo diet excludes (just as they exclude processed sugars in favor of natural foods like honey). This information will be useful in helping people up- and down-vote the answers accordingly.

@TFD I think we'll agree to disagree. lol. Thanks for your answer though, and for the discussion.

@TFD Additional problems arise with, "Starchy foods are the foundation of the traditional diet. For example, the traditional Hawaiian diet is 75 to 80 percent starch, 7 to 12 percent fat, and 12 to 15 percent protein." That's an extremely high amount of carbohydrates to base the diet on, and is opposite of my diet. The large carb intake can do all manner of things with your body's insulin, for starters. (I'm getting these quotes from my first Google result: faqs.org/nutrition/Ome-Pop/Pacific-Islanders-Diet-of.html)

@TFD assuming PI means Pacific Islander, you're incorrect. "Pacific Islanders typically eat three meals a day. Breakfast usually includes cereal and coffee, while traditional meals are eaten for lunch and dinner. However, in areas such as Hawaii, Samoa, and Guam, traditional foods now contribute only minimally to daily intake, most of which is made up of imported foods or fast food." It is also said that their diet consists largely of abundantly available nuts, which are very high in omega 6, and grains, which I also posit are a problem (just as they are for cows).
