ASPARAGUS ALLERGY


Key Allergens

Aspa o 1 is the key allergen associated with an allergy to asparagus, it is a lipid transfer protein (LTP). If you have an allergy to this protein you will still suffer symptoms on ingestion of the cooked vegetable.

There is some evidence that asparagus can cause contact dermatitis rashes - this is due to a plant growth inhibitor called 1,2,3-Trithiane-5-carboxylic acid which is present in young shoots. If sensitised to this you will still be able to eat the cooked food.

Associated Syndromes

You may have LTP Syndrome if you suffer from asparagus allergy and other foods mentioned in cross reactivity section.

Cross Reactivity

Common foods involved in LTP allergy include kiwi, strawberries, sunflower seeds, walnut, apple, mulberry, banana, pea, apricot, cherry, plum, almond, peach pomegranate, raspberry, tomato, grape, celery, peanut, asparagus, cabbage, broccoli, chestnut, lemon, tangerine, orange, hazelnut, lettuce, lentils, lupin, green bean, pear, mustard, wheat and maize.
