Can anybody give me definitive information regarding the consumption of rice cereal and rice milk with histamine intolerance? I have so many intolerance problems: lactose, gluten, fructose, and histamine that if I have to remove rice as well, there's not going to be a heck of lot else I can eat. :(

Oops! I just remembered that I tried to get away with eating an egg and toast yesterday. I think that might explain the bowel cramping! One day I will get the hang of this condition!

:D

Hey there,

Low-histamine alternatives to milk (lactose) products are rice milk, oat milk or coconut milk (best from fresh coconut for the extra sensitive). There are also lactose free products, which you surely know about - some lactose intolerant people are able to tolerate these, and some not. Rice is certainly low in histamine.

Concerning egg: You should prefer egg yolk to egg white.

A quick note on fructose intolerance (not the hereditary type): It is a matter of reducing fructose to a tolerable level and using moderate levels of glucose as an alternative to other sugars. It is not about complete avoidance.

Hope ths helps a little.

20 packs of rice milk tested by our lab:

13 packs had 18ppm histamines or below (good)
7 packs had over 30ppm histamines (bad)

regarding eggs:

But don't forget... if you have cholesterol problems, you should prefer egg white to egg yolks...
By the way... for histamines, eggs are in the clear!
