Also, the type of container employed during malolactic fermentation (stainless steel or oak barrel) seems to affect the biogenic amine content of wines, suggesting that the components of wood, mainly phenolic compounds, may influence the production of biogenic amines by lactic acid bacteria (Jimenez-Moreno et al.
Histamine is one of the weak known biogenic amine found in several foods such as fish products, cheese, wine, and fermented products and it is a product of microbial decarboxylation of histidine present in the foods (Bakirci et al, 2000).
