Question: Does chocolate really cause migraines?
Answer: The evidence is not clear on this. Although cocoa and chocolate contain the amino acids tyramine and phenylethylamine, which could potentially trigger migraines, as well as histamine, which could cause headache, most clinical studies have not found chocolate any more likely to induce migraine attacks than placebo.
