Fed Up Fact Sheet

Amines and specific symptoms: behaviour, migraines, depression and other symptoms, a possible link with schizophrenia

All foods are made up of hundreds of naturally occurring compounds that can have varying effects on us, depending on how much we eat and how sensitive we are.

Biogenic amines are formed by the breakdown of proteins in foods. They can affect mental functioning, blood pressure, body temperature, and other bodily processes. Some hormones, such as adrenaline (epinephrine) are compounds containing an amine. There are many different amines, including:
tyramine (e.g. in cheese)
histamine (e.g. in wine)
phenylethylamine (e.g. in chocolate)
agmatine, putrescine, cadaverine, spermidine (e.g. in decomposing fish)
adrenaline (ephinephrine)

Research suggests that about 70 per cent of children with behaviour problems are affected by salicylates, artificial colours and preservatives, compared to only about 40 per cent affected by amines. Many mothers have reported that their child becomes silly and hyperactive on salicylates whereas amines make them aggressive. In our experience, children who are expelled from day care centres due to aggressive behaviour are usually sensitive to amines as well as to other food chemicals.
