Olive Oil high in saliclyates?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created September 26, 2012 at 3:29 PM

So I'm unsure if this chemical is what I've been responding to but many of the foods that bother me greatly (almonds, tomatoes etc) tend to fall into "high saliclyates". I thought all this time that I had an issue with nuts but Cashews don't seem to bother me at all.

Now I know that Olive Oil is one of the better oils to use but is it true that its very high in salicylates? I plan on cutting out but I'm unsure of what to substitute. I believe I react badly to coconut oil so that's not an option. I plan on buying some better butter today, what should I look for, grass fed?

Thanks for any help, finding out this chemical causes issues is hopefully a lead in my paleo quest which though helpful has opened up pandora's box.

Raw cashews are also poisonous. Cashews soiled as "raw" are boiled/steamed, not roasted - but definitely not raw.

Sorry but what's bad about salicylates? I use a lot of olive oil, but I react badly to almond.

Cashews aren't nuts

I realise this is five months old, but I'll answer anyway.....

Yes, olive oil is very high in salicylates, the best, most up to date info is available and published by Sydney's Royal Prince Alfred Hospital's allergy unit.

Dr Anne Swain's original thesis is here http://www.sswahs.nsw.gov.au/rpa/allergy/research/students/1988/AnneSwainPhDThesis.pdf

Raw Cashews are extremely low in sals, roasted are high. Most all other nuts are high.

As you've found, coconut is high, you are better substituting Ghee or rice bran oil for other oils or avocado, etc.
