Are Bell Peppers Low Histamine?

Yes, bell peppers are low histamine. Also known as capsicum, bell peppers’ histamine levels may be low, but their nutritional value is high. The brightly-colored veggies are packed with vitamin C, a potent mast cell stabilizer which is also found in abundance in guava, broccoli, and cherries.

This summer fruit (more generally used as a vegetable) is also commonly used in its dried and powdered form, which is a spice known as sweet paprika (or more simply, paprika). Don’t mistake this for hot paprika, which is generally made from chili peppers, and tends to have too much capsicum for those dealing with histamine intolerance to handle much of. But for those with no issues with nightshades, sweet bell peppers are a great source of antioxidants and dietary fiber, and very versatile in the kitchen.
