Low Salicylates, Moderate Amines, Low Glutamates

A note on yogurt: "Fresh yogurt, natural, plain or vanilla" is listed in the 2011 version of the RPAH Elimination Diet Handbook as low chemical.  The previous 2009 version listed "Yogurt" as moderate in Amines.   The definition of "fresh yogurt" in the 2011 version is not clear.  All recipes on this site use the moderate amines rating for yogurt.  If you are using fresh yogurt then the amine level of that ingredient will be low.  There may, however, be other amine ingredients in the recipe.
