    It's easier to list what to avoid foods and beverage to avoid.

    Avoid foods that are high in tyramine. Tyramine can interact with this medication and cause unpleasant side effects.

    List of foods that you should avoid containing high tyramine

    Soy-Based Food

    Soy-based products, including tofu, soy sauce, miso paste and teriyaki sauce, are all tyramine-rich foods. Processed soy products such as veggie burgers are also generally best avoided; those with a tyramine sensitivity should stick to fresh veggie patties made from grains as opposed to soy.

    Aged cheese

    Aged cheese such as brie and gorgonzola are very high in tyramine. Mild, non-aged cheese like mozzarella and cream cheese are fine.

    Alcoholic Beverages

    Many alcoholic beverages cause side-effects in those who have tyramine sensitivities. Red wine, tap beer and champagne are all contain substantial amounts of the amino acid.

    Cured meats

    Cured meats like bologna, salami, pepperoni and sausages are all foods high in tyramine. Dried and pickled fish such as herring also contain a high level of the amino acid and should be avoided.


    Chocolate is a tyramine-rich food that can be particularly problematic for those prone to migraine headaches. Dark chocolate is the worst culprit, but all chocolate (including products containing cocoa powder) should be avoided.


    Bananas, avocados, raisins and tomatoes all make the list of foods high in tyramine. Even in small amounts these produce items can trigger a reaction, so it's best to avoid them and products containing them.
