  • Please use with caution! Some people may be allergic to broad beans, which can lead to serious symptoms - even death. People shouldn't consume them if they had never consumed any in the past. – FunnyJava Jul 6 '18 at 12:49
  • While you're right that trying fava beans for the first time can be dangerous, the danger isn't an allergy, it's G6PDD, otherwise known as "favism". It affects about 1 out of 40 people, so relatively common, especially among folks of sub-saharan African descent. – FuzzyChef Jul 9 '18 at 20:18
