Cloves are native to the Moluccas (once known as the Spice Islands), but are now grown in other tropical areas throughout the world. Cloves are extremely aromatic, with up to 15% essential oil (70 to 85% eugenol), and so have long been prized for their intense fragrance and burning taste, as well as their medicinal properties.

Anecdotal evidence suggests that clove 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
