NOTE: There is a story today in the Washington Post which describes the anti-inflamatory benefits which may become a big part of the subject of this spice: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2006/11/26/AR2006112600730.html

Perhaps the Wikipedians working on this entry may want to look at this new aspect of the subject. jbreck@nyc.rr.com

melegueta pepper versus grains of paradise[edit]

Aframomum melegueta is not equal to Aframomum granum paradisi according to this site: http://www.theepicentre.com/Spices/meleguet.html.

It certainly sounds as if there are two related but different plants, one of which became a common substitute for the other, maybe? If someone has time and resources to research and pin down the differences, we really ought to have two pages.
