10 Foods High in Ammonia – High Levels to Avoid!

2. Salami

It’s hard to resist salami! These pieces of sliced sausages are delicious to eat as they are or inside a deli sandwich. Among all the types of foods, salami is one of those that contain the most amount of ammonia. For every 100 g it contains 0.11 g of ammonia. If you can’t resist eating those foods containing salami, then just cut down your intake of those pizza slices and sandwiches.

3. Peanut Butter

Peanut butter is often promoted as one of the healthy snack alternatives. But what you don’t know is that it also contains a small amount of ammonia. For every 100 g of this delicious peanut spread is .049 g of ammonia. 100 g is equivalent to 7.05 tablespoons. It is then safe to say that even with 7 tablespoons of peanut butter you get a very minimal amount of ammonia.  It’s a different story if you consume half a jar.
