Is Pea Protein Low Histamine?

No, pea protein is not low histamine. It’s not necessarily high histamine, but the material from which pea protein is extracted, green peas, are what’s known as “histamine liberators.” That means that these small green pulses supposedly cause the release of histamine in the body despite their own low histamine content. Therefore, green peas in all forms should be avoided for at least the first month of a low histamine diet.
