The general trend on an increment of all the biogenic amines after boiling can originate (i) from the possible inactivation of the amine oxidase enzymes due to high temperature; (ii) from an enhanced availability for extraction, to a more efficient release of biogenic amines from intracellular proteins and altered cell structures [8]; (iii) from the degradation of other compounds, including precursor amino acids.
