I read the book "What HIT me?", really interesting and now I am following a low-histamine diet.
I do not know if some foods which I usually eat are safe. Can someone help me?
Fennel bulb - not found in any list, but I love this vegetable.
Zucchini (Courgette-Squash) - on the book they are classified as "debatable", here as safe
Celery - not found in any list
Pumpkin - on the book are safe, here are not listed
Honey - on the book seems to be safe, but not found on this site
Tuna - even fresh, why on this site is considered dangerous?
Ghee (clarified butter) - not found in any list
There is not much on lists concerning fennel, but I have been able to eat fennel with no problem. I have seen it in several low-histamine recipes as well You need to figure it out. That's what you need to do with all the foods that are not on the list once you're finished with the elimination diet - one by one. Got a dietician on board? Zucchini is debatable because there has been much discussion about it, but it is on many safe lists, but I can only have a certain amount. I have no problem with celery and have seen it on several low-histamine lists. Pumpkin is also considered to be safe by many, and is also classified as preferable on several low-histamine lists.
There are several problems with fish, as it needs to be very fresh to eat. Tuna is no good to many people with HIT, but I have been getting better lately and I have eaten Sushi, and been ok - I know it is really risky though. Tuna is fished in warm regions and then transported for long distances, so the likelihood that it can be high in histamine is high. It is best if you stick with eating fish from your region, and buying it from places that have high standards and are well known for their quality.
The ghee you will also have to try, some people seem to be able to tolerate it quite well, some not. It took me quite a while, but I've got it pretty much worked out for myself now, just kept on trying things when I felt better. I also have fructose malabsorption, so I also have to consider that into my plan. See what I mean?
Hi! I've recently started the low histamine eating plan, but I had a lot of trouble finding a list of safe foods. I've found an app that helps me a lot with this it has a strawberry on the icon, it is called intolerances. This was great use as you can input multiple allergies and it has filters so it only shows the food that you are able to have. I do hope that this helps someone as I personally looked a long time for a non existent list of safe foods.
