Histamine is a compound involved in local immune response and many physiological functions. The best known effect is release of histamine during an allergic reaction, causing the typical itching, sneezing, wheezing and swelling or even anaphylactic shock. Histamine also occurs naturally in certain foods. In the event of histamine intolerance, histamine-rich food can cause reactions similar to real allergic reactions and hypotension.
