Answer: I have a good friend, where this intolerance runs in the family. For them it can be treated using L-Lysine. They take 1000Mg daily as a precaution for the many foods that have a little Citric acid added and extra 1000 or 2000Mg if they are exposed (e.g. drink orange juice). The best form of L-Lysine (working faster and needing less seems to be one with complementary vitamins and mineral to aid digestion. They report this works faster and requires a lesser dose. In Australia a firm calls BioOrganics makes one which has Lysine Hydrochloride 500mg, Zinc Amino Acid Chelate 5mg equiv. Zinc 1mg, Calcium Ascorbate dihydrate 55mg, Equiv. Vitamin C 45mg, Nicotinamide 50mg, Magnesium Amino Acid Chelate 10mg, Equiv. Magnesium 2mg, Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine Hydrochloride) 10mg. This works very well. However pute L-Lysine works too - just not a fast. This treatment was found many years ago by a family friend and seems to work very well for them. This basically completely controls the symptoms.
