Q – Tips : Garlic

Many people suspect they are allergic to garlic owing to “GI tumult” that occurs after eating it.  However, it is more likely due to a genetic deficiency in cytochrome P450 and FAD-linked enzymes which metabolize sulfur containing foods.  Garlic contains very high levels of alkyl and dialkyl sulfide which give it its characteristic taste and smell.
