Migraines Diet and Food Triggers

It is best to eat only freshly prepared foods to avoid the risk of eating foods that may have been aged, fermented, pickled or marinated. Tenderizers, monosodium glutamate, nitrate or nitrite compounds are likely to be provoking agents. Tyramine content may vary among brand names available in the market because of preparation, processing or storage. It is important to read labels carefully when shopping and ask questions when eating out.

Avoid all alcoholic beverages if possible. If you must drink, no more than two normal size drinks.  Suggested drinks: Haute Sauterne. Riesling Wine, Seagram’s VO, Cutty Sark, Vodka.
