Red Wine 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.
Red Wine Vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp blueberry juice
  • 1 tsp vodka
  • just shy of 1/2 tsp ascorbic acid
  • 1/4 tsp loosely packed brown sugar
AMINE BREAKDOWN:
Very Low Amine: ascorbic acid
Low Amine: vodka, brown sugar
High Amine: blueberry juice (low in tyramines, high in histamines)
