A food, which may result in allergy symptoms in sensitised individuals.
Basil, a member of the Mint family, is one of the oldest herbs from the Orient. It originated in India and is now found in more than 100 varieties and grown almost worldwide. It is used, fresh or dried or as an extract, to add a distinct aroma and flavour to food.

Anecdotal evidence suggests that basil may induce symptoms of food allergy in sensitised individuals; however, few studies have been reported to date. Copyright Copyright © 2006 Phadia AB. Source: ImmunoCap, ImmunoCap
