Balsamic Vinegar Substitute

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.

Balsamic vinegar

  • 4 Tbsp blueberry juice, reduced over high heat to 2 Tbsp
  • 1/2 tsp ascorbic acid
  • 1/4 tsp molasses
  • 1 tsp vodka
  • 1/4 tsp lime juice

AMINE BREAKDOWN:Very Low Amine: ascorbic acidLow Amine: molasses, vodkaHigh Amine: blueberry juice (low in tyramines, high in histamines)Very High Amine: lime juice
