Bogus health claims[edit]

Previous versions had this paragraph:

Some studies shown Petai contain three natural sugars -sucrose, fructose and glucose - combined with fiber, petai gives an instant, sustained and substantial boost of energy. Research has proved that just two servings of petai provide enough energy for a strenuous 90-minute workout. According to some research, eating petai as part of a regular diet can cut the risk of death by strokes by as much as 40%.

It's bogus. the text is exactly the same as similar claims for bananas (as below). Please don't reinsert this or similar unless you have a real citation.

[Banana wonders]

Bananas contain three natural sugars - sucrose, fructose and glucose - combined with fiber.

A banana gives an instant, sustained and substantial boost of energy. Research has proved that just two bananas provide enough energy for a strenuous 90-minute workout.

Worse than durian[edit]

The stink of this bean is worse than durian. And the effects of the stink of the breath of someone who's eating/eaten it is more potent than a garbage can's. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.217.64.52 (talk) 23:23, 18 July 2010 (UTC)

Not at all! The smell of durians is many order of magnitude stronger. If you put a bunch of petai (even after peeled off from the pods) in a room, you would smell it only if you are in that room. A guy in the next room will not smell it. On the contrary, if you put a durian (just one - unopened), not only the person next room, your neighbours would also know you have a durian! That's how powerful durian smell is.175.139.240.66 (talk) 01:08, 28 February 2014 (UTC)berdaulat

It is not stinky if..[edit]

It is not stinky if it is used in small number. When you cook something for example oseng-oseng tempeh, it will enrich the taste without stinks and when you've done cooking the oseng-oseng, you could take the petai and throw it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 36.73.61.115 (talk) 13:47, 30 December 2012 (UTC)

Health benefits[edit]

There are lots! Loads of reference easily findable. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 116.48.80.5 (talk) 08:09, 9 August 2015 (UTC)
