> Howdy,
> I'm on Nardil and am trying to get around the ban on chicken bouillon/broth by making homemade chicken broth. But what is the tyramine issue with broth/boiullons? Is it the yeast extract found in so many packaged broths? Or is it that the chicken giblets, inlcluding the liver might be used to make the broth if a whole chicken is used?

I have never been on MAOI's, nor do I claim to be an an expert on MAOI diets, but I'll have a go at your question anyhow. :)

My understading is the majority of tyramine in food & drink is caused by the actions of microbes on other protiens. The more aged a product is, the more tyramine it develops. Fresh meat is fine to eat, but aged meats like sausages is a no go. Non-aged cheese like Cottage cheese is fine but aged cheeses, which is pretty much every cheese that has flavour is a no go & not to be touched. Yeast extracts are a no go too. I am unsure if chicken livers & other organs contain tyramine, but they will develop it fast as they go bad pretty quickly. My advice on the chicken broth would be to clean the organs out of it before you simmer it slowly. Also, if you are buying frames, buy the biggest ones as biggest would be oldest & oldest has the best flavour & the most gristle. It's the collagen in the gristle that you are eeking out to make gelatin in the stock.

Cheers,
Panda.
