Other foods that contain this somewhat smelly mineral are onions, garlic, cabbage, brussels sprouts, and turnips. Nuts have some, as do kale, lettuce, kelp and other seaweed, and raspberries. ... there is much confusion regarding allergy to sulfa-containing drugs, sulfite as a preservative agent in foods and medications ... (copied from the internet ... so please discuss with a medical physician)

    Alfalfa sprouts ... quite a bit it seems. remember we are all individual and it should always be monitored by medical professionals and oneself

    so interesting!

    i am dealing with allergies as well so feel like i need someone to teach me how and what to eat ... i do not avoid all foods as above but if i feel symptomatic after eating i try it at different times with different foods and if i get the same *reaction* i tend to rather avoid it.

    Wow, alfalfa, that is interesting. Someone told me to take alfalfa supplements because I was anemic about a year ago and that stuff made me so sick. Maybe that is why, the sulfur content.
