Almond Butter

Hi All! I have been eating lots of sunflower butter and I just saw sunflower seeds were high on the histamine list! (shocked) I had no idea! So...I've been looking for an alternative. I know peanut butter is out, so I was curious about Almond Butter. I can't seem to find much information on if almonds/almond butter is bad for us rosaceans! Anyone have trouble with almonds? Anyone not? All info is appreciated Thanks much! (wave)

I eat quite a few different kinds of nuts and haven't noticed anything from any of them including sunflower seeds. I eat slivered almonds on my salads at least three times a week. I think everyone reacts differently though.

From http://www.digitalnaturopath.com/treat/T444777.html :

"While nuts do not contain histamine, they do contain histidine. Peanut, sesame, almond, pistachio, pine, and walnut have the highest levels of histidine among the nuts. Histidine, an amino acid, can be used by some gut bacteria to produce histamine. In other words, nuts can raise histamine levels indirectly. "

I can't vouch for the veracity of the site, but this was the most direct answer to the question I could find with a quick Google search. :)

If you're avoiding histamine foods, probably avoid nuts for a while and reintroduce one at a time to see the effect.

Ok...thank you for the info! :) I bought some Almond Butter last night. I only ate a spoonful so we will see how it does! It's yummy so I hope I can tolerate it!

Update---I tried the almond butter & I also tried some almond milk. Last night, the side of my face along my jaw started itching and yep...I've got a itchy bump! :-( So looks like almond butter is a no-no for me! I'm going to try pumpkin seed butter next!! :)

For some reason I thought almond products were okay, but last night while I had a moderate flush going on in my cheeks and nose, I drank some almond milk, and started getting redder and swelling in my cheeks.
Interestingly, I've drank this in the morning before when my face was pale, and it didn't produce a flush....go figure.

Warning !

I believe the posts by markferrante ---broad based nutritional help without concern for treatment of Rosacea---are an advertisement for an Online Food Course.

Hidden sales pitch for bogus online food course.
