Serotonin content of foods: effect on urinary excretion of 5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid​

Abstract​

Using a highly specific radioenzymatic assay we determined the serotonin concentration in 80 types of foods. The following fruits had a high serotonin concentration (mean +/- SEM) expressed in micrograms/g weight:
plantain 30.3 +/- 7.5;
pineapple 17.0 +/- 5.1;
banana 15.0 +/- 2.4;
Kiwi fruit 5.8 +/- 0.9;
plums 4.7 +/- 0.8; and
tomatoes 3.2 +/- 0.6
...Ingestion of these fruits and nuts resulted in an increase in urinary 5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid excretion with no change in platelet serotonin concentration.

5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid (5-HIAA)... in your urine is a waste product that comes from the breakdown of serotonin by the liver.
