Does The Low Tyramine Diet Include Protein Powders?

I am going to try the Low Tyramine Diet---does that include protein powders, due to the amino acid content?

Answer

Hi fittnessbuff,

From doing some research from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), they say that lots of convenience foods contain tyramine rich ingredients (marmite, yeast extracts). Be careful in health food stores. Weight control powders, diet supplements and pills may contain tyramine or yeast extracts.

I hope that helps.
