comment Grapefruit recipe substitute to avoid medicine interaction?
Ah, now I see. I do appreciate the creative thinking but I think it's probably not worth the effort & fear of accidental inhalation/contamination for that slight grapefruit hit.

Again, real grapefruit is the thing he needs to avoid. I don't know how much furanocoumarin would be in a drop of grapefruit essential oil, but there isn't a chance in the world he's willing to risk his kidney on it being non-zero.

Good idea but the question of finding a good grapefruit scent remains. As for Bergamot, turns out bergamottin was one of the first furanocoumarins they found. And guess where they first found it?

I appreciate the feedback so far, and the hybrid mentioned by @talon8 sounds very promising, but does anyone know of any extracts or combination of non-grapefruit/pomelo flavors that can do the job today?

@No'amNewman It's not even necessarily all kidney transplant patients, it's the specific medicine my friend will be on. But it's good to ask your doctor about any new medicine if you eat grapefruit.
