A spice, which may result in allergy symptoms in sensitised individuals.

Anise is an annual herb cultivated in many countries but native to Southern Europe and the Mediterranean. A member of the Apiaceae family, it is related to Caraway, Dill, Cumin, and Fennel. The dried fruits have been used for centuries for flavouring drinks, pastries, and candies. The ancients prized it as a medicinal plant.

Anise may commonly induce symptoms of food allergy in sensitised individuals (9), in particular in individuals who are allergic to Mugwort and Birch pollen or in Celery-sensitive patients. Allergens in spices are particularly risky due to their hidden presence in many dishes.
Reactions to Anise may be severe.

Urticaria as a result of contact with Anise has been documented.

Occupational exposure to Anise may occur in spice factory workers and in liqueur and spirit manufacturers. Copyright Copyright © 2006 Phadia AB. Source: ImmunoCap, ImmunoCap
