Subject: Help! What's fluming?
For a refugee who is under a doctor's care, I am translating a "Sodium-
restricted diet plan" from English to Bosnian. It runs in part:
"List I: foods with low sodium content.
List II: foods with moderate sodium content--These foods must be limited
in amounts as specified.
*Meat/fish/fowl (other than those in List III)--Limit to 6 oz. cooked weight
[the footnote says:] *Fresh crab, lobster, shrimp, scallops, brains,
kidneys, and frozen fish which have been flumed in brine contain higher
amounts of sodium than other fresh meats. These foods should be chosen
List III: foods with high sodium content--These foods should be avoided.
Can anyone tell me what "flumed in brine" means? And what does it modify
in the sentence--just the fish[es], or also the fresh crab, lobster, ...
Many thanks for all suggestions.
