Additional Notes

Bananas tend to test negligible, but when retested with free and bound salicylates, they have tested in the medium category (Malakar et al. 2017). Choose very ripe bananas, as ripening reduces salicylate levels. Reactions to this fruit seems to vary widely with people - while most people are able to tolerate it well.
