Could rice noodles contain histamines? (pic. included)

by 3277 · June 22, 2012 at 06:06 AM

I've been eating these rice noodles lately, thinking they are a low-histamine, safe starch: alt text

These two pictures show how the rice is dried (kinda gross):




Should I assume these are a low-histamine food?
Rice contains protein, right?
If the rice is dried on the street, wouldn't it build up histamines?
Once histamines are produced, do they stay around forever, even through the further processing?

What do you think?

Thanks, Mike

I found this list of low level histamine foods, rice noodles are on it:


rice absolutely has a % of protein, when I was at my worst with histamine issues (and I didnt know) I was eating nothing but rice and was blowing up like a balloon.

My thought would be to try and eat freshly made foods on the low histamine lists and you'll likely be fine!

hope it works for you!!

You only really need to worry about histamine if you are actually allergic to the substance. There are people who are allergic to the sun and the sun has no histamine...the body just produces it because it thinks it is harmful. You can try quercetin/rutin as natural anti-histamines.

Hi there, rice is high in histidine, a histamine precursor. Some people with histamine issues react to rice when eaten in large quantities. Also make sure the rice is not left over from another meal as bacteria increases the histamine content of food. I generally find that most processed foods mess with histamine levels. You can message me at 'the biogenic amine woman at gmail dot com' if you want more histamine info. I'm launching a low histamine meal planning service that's pretty compatible with the paleo diet. You can also check out the biogenic amine woman dot com for more info. Hope this helps.

Lol, sorry I see we have already chatted! I'm also pineapple girl on the allergy uk forum :)

My son is allergic to rice (skin test verified), so I would have to assume that it both contains proteins and is histamine producing.
