Vinegar Substitutions (apple cider, malt, red wine, white wine, rice, balsamic vinegar, and sherry).

Vinegar is very high in amines, so I have come up with vinegar substitutions that are amine-allergy friendly. These vinegar substitutions are low amine, delicious, and easy to make. Blueberry juice does not give me problems, but please be aware that though it is low in tyramines, it is high in histamines. Use if your diet will allow for it, otherwise opt for an unsweetened pomegranate juice.
