Version 2.77


Said to have been cultivated in 16th-century Belgium, Brussels Sprouts are a member of the Cabbage (Brassicaceae) family and, indeed, resemble tiny Cabbage heads. Important growing areas are Western and Middle Europe, Japan, and North America.

Anecdotal evidence suggests that Brussels sprouts can occasionally induce symptoms of food allergy in sensitised individuals; however, no studies have been reported to date. Copyright Copyright © 2006 Phadia AB. Source: ImmunoCap, ImmunoCap
