Basil – Allergy Resources

Basil is a plant in the Lamiaceae family which contains lots of edible herbs such as mint, thyme and sage.

Basil is rarely linked to food allergy, to date there are no recorded allergens for basil by the World Health Organization (WHO), because there have not been enough study into allergic effects from this food. If you are interested in what is needed by the WHO before they add an allergen to their allergen database you can check that out HERE.

I have put together some more comprehensive resources at http://www.allergyresources.co.uk/Basil.php

The allergy resources page for basil covers the key allergens, which allergic syndromes are linked to this allergy and other foods which are commonly cross reactive with basil.

There is also regularly updated links to useful websites specifically for basil allergies and the latest research papers on the topic.

If you have multiple allergies and are interested in how they are linked or want to find out more about food allergies outside the usual top 14 then you can follow me on Facebook or Twitter, where I share a food allergy card every day of the week.
