[Simultaneous determination methods of biogenic amines in food].Wei Sheng Yan Jiu. 2006 Sep; 35(5):670-4.WS
Biogenic amines are organic bases with low molecular weight. They can be expected in all foods that contain proteins or free amino acids. Consumption of food containing high amounts of biogenic amines may cause toxicological effects. The most notorious foodborne intoxications caused by biogenic amines are related to histamine.
