Hi, I have a problem but don’t know if I have the same allergy as I only find I get the problem with raw cheese., even before I have had one chew on it I become red in the face and my face goes very hot. Could you please tell me if it could be an allergy to Tyramine or do you think I should go on looking.I have not really noticed it with anything else except alcohol. I would be grateful for any help you can give me.
Your reaction is very interesting June. We can understand it more using the diet detective approach. Can you give us more information so everyone can understand your situation. What symptoms do you get? Are you free of these symptoms as long as you stay away from raw cheese? Do you think your reaction occurs when you get a smell of it, or when it touches you lips or tongue? What about raw milk or yoghurt? Which alcoholic drinks are most problem: wine, beer or spirits. In diet detective work the more clues we have the better!
