Re: MAOI Diet & hypertensive chicken

Hi Gretchen,

I'm going to take a wild stab at a hypothesis here...I could be totally off base. Is it possible that the cooking procedures and especially the marinades used in making certain kinds of store-bought chicken cause sufficient changes to cause a tyramine reaction in some people (as with aged foods)? This comes to mind because I remember the brief health flare-up (bad pun, I know) last year about the effects of chargrilling food -- A couple studies found that such high-temperature grilling of foods including chicken could create low levels of some not-so-healthful chemcials (i.e., potential carcinogens), but were also surprised that meat that had been marinated in advance seemed to have a very different chemical "profile." If I remember correctly, both of these effects were attributed to the breakdown of certain proteins, so there's at least a *possible* connection.

Are there ever warnings in MAOI diets about marinated food? High-temperature grilled food? Just what kind of chicken was it that caused the problem in the first place? Whatever you end up deciding, I hope you can find a way to live with the hypertensive wiles of Parnate one way or another--though note the recent interest on this board over the reintroduction of Marplan too...
