- ... More than 70% of birch pollen–allergic individuals are affected by a cross-allergy from apples. The aim of this study was to determine if an increased polyphenolic content of apples is inversely related to clinical allergic reactions in sufferers.The polyphenolic content of two old and two new apple cultivars was analyzed using high performance liquid chromatography. The in vitro concentration of ...

- ... Birch pollen-related apple allergy affects up to 5% of Germany's population due to Mal d 1. It has been hypothesized that apple allergenicity decreases by cutting, due to oxidation reactions of polyphenols with apple allergens. In this study, the influence of enzymatic browning on the allergenicity of apples was investigated by determining the total phenolic content, polyphenols, Mal d 1 and the a ...
