BROCCOLI ALLERGY


Key Allergens

Broccoli is in the cabbage family of brassicas. No allergens have been detected in broccoli, but it has been shown to contain Lipid Transfer Proteins (LTP).

Broccoli also contains high levels of salicylates. These are naturally derived compounds in food and are made by the plant in defence against disease and attack by insects.

Associated Syndromes

You may be suffering from LTP Syndrome if you have reactions to various fruits, vegetables and nuts and your reactions continue to be severe after you have discarded the peel and have cooked the food.

An intolerance to broccoli is often linked to salicylate sensitivity.

Cross Reactivity

Common foods involved in LTP allergy include kiwi, strawberries, sunflower seeds, walnut, apple, mulberry, banana, pea, apricot, cherry, plum, almond, peach pomegranate, raspberry, tomato, grape, celery, peanut, asparagus, cabbage, chestnut, lemon, tangerine, orange, hazelnut, lettuce, lentils, lupin, green bean, pear, mustard, wheat and maize.
