The Grain Elimination Game: GO TO POLL

The rules:
1. you may vote once per day
2. you vote by adding a point to a grain you like, and subtracting a point from one you don't
3. once a grain has 0 points, it is eliminated and cannot be voted for again
4. the game ends with a poll where you vote for one option.

note - "wheat" refers to refined wheat (white flour, regular pasta/couscous, etc). both wheats include stuff like semolina/durum, hard/soft varieties. "rice" refers to white rices. Corn includes stuff like polenta, grits, masa, etc.

I think at least brown and white rice should be split up. Hmmmm. This is a weird one. "Wheat" is a lot of stuff, but "pasta" is not a grain... ??? Maybe do like semolina flour, whole wheat flour, ....etc?

Amaranth
Bulgur
Kamut
Rye
Wild rice?
Durum wheat
Kamut

the problem with durum is that it's used for semolina, couscous, bread flour, bulgur, but not cake flour. =/

How about:
whole wheat
wheat
?

Brown and white rice should definitely be separate. Other than that, I'm fine with whatever.

Yeah, just go with whatever. Ha! I've never even had kamut...  This will be a bit of a strange one if we do iron chef. ..maybe
