On the subject of diet restriction and which foods to avoid that might contain tyramine, I'd like to know if anyone has any comments on the following types of foods which I like regularly
but seem to be in a grey area:

Bisto Gravy Granules
(contains hyrolysed vegetable protein)

Balsamic Wine Vinegar

Brown Sauce (english table sauce)
(contains molasses, date paste, tomato
paste, soy sauce)

Quorn products (Vegetarian meat alternatives)
(these contain mycoprotein, rehydrated egg
white, milk protein, gelling agent: pectin)

Tesco Vegetarian Bacon Style Rashers
(made from wheat and soya protein)

Realeat Vege Mince - this looks like a big no no?
(Rehydrated Wheat Protein (20%), Rehydrated Textured Soya Protein (20%), Vegetable Oil, Soya Flour, Soya Protein Isolate, Yeast Extract, Vegetable Bouillin, Malt Extract)

Quorn Mince
(Myco-protein* (88%), Rehydrated Egg White (free-range), Roasted Barley Malt Extract, *Mushroom in origin and not a GMO)

Pot Noodle Chicken & Mushroom Flavour -- another no no?
(contains textured soya pieces, Yeast, Yeast Extract, Hydrolysed Vegetable protein)

Tamari sauce

Pickled Onions
(contain Lactic Acid, Acetic Acid, Malt Extract)

Tinned Soups that contain Yeast Extract or Vegetable Bouillon Concentrate

Tinned Soups that contain Haricot Beans

Curry sauces that contain Yogurt, lacitic acid, Coconut Cream Paste, Mango Chutney)

Frozen stored pasturised milk
(milk thats been stored in the freezer
then defrosted and kept in fridge past its
use by date)

Canned/bottled beers:
(I know beers are recommended to be avoided
but wondered if anyone drinks any of these without
adverse affects)
Stella Artois
Holsten Pills

White Wine:
Regular White Wine
Fizzy White Wine

Irish Whisky Cream Liquor
White Rum

I know it seems a bit over the top writing down everything in my cupboard, but I dont want to take any chances at all and would like to start as I as mean to go on, with a list of things to avoid and things that are safe, no with no grey areas.

I intend to write to the manufacturers of these products and will post any comments they might care to make in due course.
