Can globe artichoke cause an allergic reaction?

A Answers (1)

  • Avoid in individuals with a known allergy or hypersensitivity to globe artichoke (Cynara scolymus), its constituents, or members of the Asteraceae or Compositae family, including chrysanthemums, daisies, marigolds, ragweed, and arnica, due to possible cross-reactivity. Symptoms of allergy may include worsening of asthma, skin rash, anaphylactic shock, dyspnea (difficulty breathing), cough, and chest tightness. While rare, individuals with a known inulin allergy should avoid artichokes and artichoke extracts.
