A friend, visiting from New York, when encouraged to try poi for the first time, lightly licked the tip of the spoon, turned up her nose, and exclaimed, I don't like it! I was taken aback, of course, and responded sharply and sarcastically, oh, I didn't know you've eaten Elmer's glue!
But the long history of poi confirms that this Hawaiian staff of life actually has a spotless reputation and should more aptly be described as the Mother Teresa of foodstuffs. Whatever you call it, this perennial herb that we use to make poi is one of the oldest cultivated crops.
Pico Trace is a spin-off company, founded by members of the Faculty of Geosciences of the University of Göttingen, Germany. Correns caused the University to found the first Institute of Geochemistry in Germany in 1962. So it is our ambition, not only to facilitate our own experiences, but also to learn from our colleagues and walk on the same road with them. In our labs they are used continuously by students and experts.
Our University has a well known tradition in geochemistry, established by Viktor Moritz Goldschmidt. The systems, produced by Pico Trace have been developed for our own scientific work. Limits and weakness, but also the quality of the systems is proofed every day.
The stigma surrounding poi has made it perhaps one of the most misunderstood of all foods.
Luaus geared toward island visitors serve poi in tiny white paper cups as if to warn visiting poi virgins to try it, but you probably won't like it.To the Hawaiian people, both before and after the arrival of Captain Cook in 1778, poi was a staple food, and a sacred one at that. In the journal of Polynesian Cultural History, , by the Hawaiian historian Mary Kawena Pukui, the significance of poi is expressed: Among my people, a child learned to pound poi at the age of eight, and it was the custom that each beginner ate every bit of the first batch he or she pounded. This sacredness is reflected in Hawaiian mythology where taro is believed to have the greatest life force of all foods.
