  • Broccoli

    Has anyone else had a reaction to broccoli? I had some with my diiner last night, but I don't normally eat it (because it gives me gas), but I've been worried about getting enough calcium lately, so I bought it and added it to things I've always been able to tolerate (carrots, chicken, and zucchini). Afterwards I had a slight reaction to something, and I think it might have been the broccoli. Anyone else had something similar? Thanks.

    I eat brocclie all the time. it doesn't seem to bother me. Lacking all the other things i can't have, i didn't want to give it up. It does contain vitimin C...
    good luck.

        I haven't had any problem with broccoli either, other than the gas.

        But, how did you cook your chicken?

          I too am good with broccoli - might there be another culprit - even something from before dinner???

                I love broccoli, but I rarely cook it because my husband totally hates it and the smell of it cooking. But I do eat it every chance I get and it's never been a problem for me.

                  IC Diet and Oxalate foods like broccoli

                  I have found the need to cross check the IC diet with one of low oxalte foods. Broccoli is considered a medium oxalate food.
                  The University of Pittsburgh Medcial Center has information about foods and oxalates. It has really made a difference in reducing my flare-ups.
