Re: more MAOI diet questions - pepperoni issue

I have read a study (and saw it referred to on PB) about the safety of pepperoni. I've also seen it placed on safe lists for MAOIs. Someone on the MAOI Yahoo board has been telling everyone that it's safe to consume. She's been stating that as a certainty.

I've also seen pepperoni listed as dangerous on other current lists. Then I came across this post from Todd (King Vultan) that I think explains the situation well. I will try to repost this on the Yahoo board:

"Pizza can be a problem, especially pepperoni, and especially on Parnate because that is the more dangerous of the two MAOIs as far as generating hypertensive crises. I've read at least two anecdotes by different people on Parnate who suffered hypertensive crises after eating pepperoni pizza. However, studies done up at Sunnybrook, Toronto by Dr. Shulman, et al, showed nearly zero tyramine in Pizza Hut and Domino's double cheese double pepperoni pizzas. I do believe the two people who suffered hypertensive crises on Parnate did eat at smaller, unaffiliated local pizza places, with perhaps more aged/authentic pepperoni. I get pizzas myself from the Papa Murphy's take them home and cook them chain, and I do not select their pepperoni, because my impression is that it is higher quality and possibly more aged than what you might find on a Domino's pizza. I also specify mozzarella only, as Papa Murphy's normally use a three cheese blend."
