Symptoms of Histamine Intolerance

The most common symptoms of Histamine Intolerance include:

  • Headaches
  • Migraines
  • Racing heart
  • Dizziness
  • Fatigue
  • Circulation problems
  • Flushing (redness of the face, neck, and possibly upper body)
  • Rash
  • Itching
  • Swelling
  • Nausea
  • Stomach pain
  • Gas
  • Diarrhea

As Histamine Intolerance is a pseudo-allergy, anaphylactic shock can occur in the worst cases.

Not only is the range of symptoms great, but so are their manifestations. Some sufferers may experience only a slight runny nose after the consumption of histamine rich foods, while others may suffer from severe stomach cramps and massive circulatory problems.

Frusano carefully tests every batch of food declared histamine-free for histamine. Those affected can tell that the food is histamine-free by looking at the histamine-free label in the shop.
For these products, we have also carried out storage tests with subsequent analysis in order to keep the risk for consumers as low as possible.

In general, we recommend cautious testing of the personal tolerance threshold.
