Hello everyone out there in low-histamine-ville, and thank you for providing the excellent forum!

What do you think has less histamine:

Chicken breast or ground beef?

I buy 1 pound frozen blocks of ground beef from Trader Joe's (imported from Australia). I generally thaw it in warm water for 30 minutes then cook on the stove top. Would it be better to thaw in cool water for 1 hour instead?

The chicken breast I buy is 'harvest land brand'. Each breast is individually wrapped in cryo-plastic. The chicken is never frozen and I generally see it in my supermarket about 5 or 6 days after slaughter.

Based on what I've read so far, I've seen chicken on many "no" lists, but I also know that beef is hung for 3 weeks to tenderize it. I know fish is out so my biggest issue is finding a good source of protein.

Any help or experiences would be very much appreciated,

Thanks,

Mike

I don't know for sure, but I've heard that chicken is better tolerable as long as you don't eat the skin! Looks like there's the most histamine located...

Chicken (without skin) is probably a better bet. The problem with ground beef is that once chopped up, it can break down at a faster rate than a whole piece of meat.
