Jessica: The list to which I was referring is from a separate report, "Refining the MAOI DIET: Tyramine Content of Pizzas and Soy Products" by Kenneth I. Shulman M.D and Scott Walker, M.Sc.Pharm (3/1999) and a subsequent report, "A reevaluation of Dietary Restrictions for Irreversible MAOs" by the same guys, dated 06/2001. I don't know if this was ever posted online but I learned of it from one of the prior posters and got it by mail. Per that report, the bottom line on some of the foods in question is:

Foods with per serving/tyramine content well below the conservative 6 mg/serving danger level:
Sargento Light Italian, Aged Romano cheese, Ziggy's feta cheese (like that name!) and mozzarella. In the pizza category: double cheese/double pepperoni pizzas from Domino's, Pizza Pizza, Pizza Hut and McDonalds; three common Worcestershire sauces. Of 5 soy sauces tested, only Pearl River Bridge soy sauce presented any problem. They tested a whole mess of wines, all of which registered tyramine levels well below concern (you'd have to have 12 servings of the worst of them - a Spanish red - to reach a level of concern. The Chiantis that were tested didn't prove to be a problem.
Yes, I'm interested in you being the king's tester for the cheeses mentioned in the other report which Lisa reposted, within safe and reasonable limits (whatever the hell those are!)

As for beers, I can't say that I have tried them all but I have had a whole slew of the bottled and canned beers tested, with nary a reaction (MAO reaction that is). Phil.
