Low Salicylate Diet

The low salicylate diet requires you to avoid foodstuffs which contain salicylates.

Salicylates are natural plant toxins common in many fruits, berries, and some vegetables, as well as honey, yeast extracts and almonds.

Named programmes which incorporate a salicylate-free diet include the Feingold diet.
