It’s been awhile – doing reno’s over here. Fun but busy!
I am wanting to cook more with parsnips so was doing some reading on them. Having autoimmune thyroiditis (Hashimoto’s) I found this very interesting:
“Dendric cells play a key role in the regulation of the immune system. Studies show that the compound falcarindiol (FAD), found in parsnips, has the ability to stop dendritic (or immune) cells from reaching maturity. The ability to suppress the immune system gives parsnips great potential to be part of a new therapy for the treatment of autoimmune and allergic diseases.”
Yay Parsnips!Norm RobillardKeymasterMay 15, 2014 at 5:33 pmPost count: 441
Interesting. There’s also the suggestion it has antifungal activity.
