* Garlic, onions, and all of the allium family
* Grains
o methionine: corn, sunflower seeds, oats, chocolate, cashews, walnuts, almonds, sesame seeds (in that order).
o cysteine: oats, corn (corn grits are higher than chicken, see Sulfur in Human Nutrition and Applications in Medicine, by Stephen Parcell, ND. Published by Thorne Research. [PDF].)
o MSM: corn
* Legumes, including carob and jicama (alfalfa: MSM)

o [of duck maybe less so?]
* Nuts & seeds
* Broccoli and all cole-family (brassica) vegetables. This includes cabbages, pak choi, mustard, and watercress.
* Asparagus
* Coconut
* Avocado (high in glutathione, which breaks down during digestion, yielding cysteine)
* Watermelon (also high in glutathione)
* Swiss Chard
* Parsley
* Sweet potatoes and "yams" (American yams, Genus Ipomoea, not Dioscorea, which the rest of the world calls "yams"winking smiley - a sulfur compound in this tuber chelates heavy metals. [Need documentation on this.]

Geez...I don't see durian on that list. I am pretty surprised about bananas...I thought that since they are high in potassium (an alkaline mineral) that they wouldn't have much in the way of sulphur.
