Histamines are produced and accumulate in certain foods when amino acids in the food are broken down by microorganisms on the food’s surface. As a result, the dirtier
or more bacteria-ridden a food is, the more prone it is to having higher levels of histamines. histamine molecule drawn on blackboardWhat makes a food prone to this high histamine potential? Well, amino acid availability as well as conditions favorable for bacteria to break down histidine into histamine are two huge factors. Histidine decarboxylase is the enzyme that catalyses the production
of histamine from histidine. Involved in this histamine production are certain bacteria, specifically, Hafnai aluei, Morganella morganii and Klebsiella pneumonia. These bacterium have been discovered to be some of the most prolific histamine-forming bacteria in fish. Certain lactic acid bacteria are responsible for histamine production in cheese, fermented meat, fermented vegetables, and fermented beverages like
alcohol. Examples of this type of lactic acid bacteria are Lactobacillus hilgardii, Lactobacillus buchnerii, Lactobacillus curvatus, and Oenococcusoeni. A Guide to High-Histamine FoodsTomato soup has high histamine levelsWhat foods fall on the list of high histamine offenders? The big names on this list include fish, shellfish, fish sauce, almost all cheeses, soy derivatives, deli meats, chocolate, alcohol, strawberry, citrus, spinach, tomato, eggplant, nuts, and anything fermented.  Included on other lists of high histamine offenders are leftovers, which makes sense given the fact that bacterial
content can result in histamine production. It’s important to note that avoiding all these foods isn’t necessarily the answer for those who react negatively to histamines.
