The Histamine & Tyramine Restricted Diet & Food Guidelines for Mast Cell Disorders
The HISTAMINE and TYRAMINE Restricted Diet
by Janice Vickerstaff Joneja, PhD., R.D. Please buy the book, Dealing with Food Allergies by Dr. Janice Joneja, as it is important for reference and
understanding the impact of food on mastocytosis, general health and nutrition etc. The book is packed with info on
all kinds of food allergies and has several other diets for Soy, Yeast, Nuts, Fish, Sulfites, Colours/Tartrazine,
Salicylates, Nickle Allergy, etc. This entire book speaks to the wide range of sensitivities we each may experience,
plus explains the immunology & allergy biology in layman’s terms. It’s an excellent educational resource for us all.
Author notes that "4 weeks on this diet should be sufficient for a person to determine whether this will provide
relief" of symptoms.
November, 2012:- MSC has included minor additions to adjust this diet to include our patient success tips
and warnings.

(Note: Many patients find that they are able to have some items on the restricted list; while some items on the
allowed list are not safe for them. We suggest you use this diet as a general guideline to start eating healthy while
limiting mast cell degranulation. We are often individually variable in food & drink triggers.)

Additional information regarding foods and eating while living with a mast cell disorder:-
The following notes are intended for those who do not have TRUE food allergies. If you have been positively
tested as truly allergic to any food or drink below, this will not apply to you. Same warning applies for above
listed items within the diet.
Despite this diet, for our disorders, typically we find that avoiding entirely or at least limiting our intake of wheat,
sugar/sweets, dairy, spices, processed foods, and preservatives, resolves many of our difficulties with food. Home
cooking and/or raw natural foods seem to be safest for us. Most patients have adjusted their food and drink intake to
mirror the diets for Celiac disease and/or Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Many of those same foods and sensitivities
apply for mast cell disorders. Additionally, many of us are sensitive to Salicylates as well. Dr. Joneja has a full
Salicylate Diet in her book.

The Histamine & Tyramine Restricted Diet & Food Guidelines for Mast Cell Disorders
Regarding meats, histamine rises as meat cooks and continues to rise after cooking. Leftovers are typically not safe for us as we all tend to react badly to precooked foods. It may help you to limit the amount of histamine released in cooked meat by immediately putting it in the freezer after cooking. The freezing stops the histamine release. Whereas refrigeration allows the histamine release to continue in meat. Red Meats are hardest on us as they are usually from animals who had antibiotics injected or were force fed etc. Similar reports from patients regarding Chicken. Many have found that organic meats (not force fed, not injected with antibiotics, not held together with “glue meat”) are safest for us. Pork seems okay however Ham is problematic for most. Raw vegetables (from the Allowed list) seem to offer great benefit for health for most of us. Cooking your vegetables is fine, but raw vegetables deliver greater nutrients. Some patients have reported great improvement in symptoms and illness level by following a completely raw food diet. If you cook fresh vegetables, steaming them will preserve more nutrients and they will also taste better! Supplements are necessary for most of us. Probiotics, Prebiotics, Omega 3-6-9 and Ester C have been reported as extremely beneficial and helpful in limiting reactions to foods, even those on the restricted list. We suggest the Canadian brand SISU supplements of Dophilus Plus and Citrus Free Ester C taken daily. Alternatively, many patients report Jamieson supplements as safest and most effective. Note about Omega supplements – ensure it is derived from FLAX and NOT from fish. Top two consistent recommendations from patients repeatedly has been Olive Oil (not olives, just the oil) and Coconut, as being very safe and beneficial. Coconut is available as a butter and an oil which makes it a great alternative to dairy butter etc. Suggested sources are Canadian online store or your local health food store for pure organic sources of Coconut butter and oil. About Chocolate…. Milk chocolate is definitely not helpful. However, occasionally, if you want to have a bit of chocolate, Dark Chocolate is safest and has more health benefits. Be very careful though. Not all of us are able to cheat with the same things. We all react variably to foods and drinks. It’s very individual figuring it out. Dining out is difficult for most of us. We tend to eat at home with freshly prepared meals. This is because restaurant food supplies are sprayed or injected with preservatives to keep them fresh as long as possible. We react to the preservatives (on salads too - lettuce etc.). There is also the risk of a restaurant food prepared on a surface which has residue from other foods, some of which may not be safe for us. If travelling and/or dining out, many of us often only eat one large meal at end of day or else we take an extra dose of H1 and H2 antihistamines prior to eating a meal. We also keep a bottle of Children's Benadryl Allergy Liquid (or Benadryl tablets) on hand to take 2 sips (equivalent to 2 tablespoons) immediately before or after eating, to help limit reactions. Note that Benadryl passes through your system quickly, so taking an extra dose of meds may be more effective. Taking both an extra dose of meds along with sips of Benadryl is fine if needed. An alternative is creating a snack package of vegetables to nibble on – raw/uncooked, fresh, cleaned, and chopped up. Alcohols (Beer, Wine, Hard Liquor) and Teas are high in histamine naturally. So those are best avoided entirely. Some are able to have herbal teas without difficulty (Camomile, for instance). Be careful with Green Tea as that, in particular, provokes mast cell degranulation. Some are able to have alcohol in moderation very occasionally. Coffee is hit and miss with many of us. If you are able to have coffee, freshly brewed is best. Avoid instant and/or flavoured coffees, if you can. Potatoes and Onions are typically very difficult for most of us. However, patients have reported success with red potatoes and red onions, in moderation and on an irregular basis. Breads are usually a full AVOID item for us. Patients report tolerating Light Rye Bread without Preservatives, a couple of brands make this bread and it’s typically available in most grocery stores. Usually near the deli section. It’s pricier than other breads but seems safest for many.
