List of Nightshade Veggies and Fruits

February 9, 2013

Please read: Plant taxonomy
*I have added the link above to help those that are confused about plant taxonomy, meaning how plants are broken down into their classifications. I don’t mind when anyone asks me to double-check a plant on the list (and when I have time I even check plants that are not on the list) – and as I have stated before, some of my readers have been invaluable in keeping this list as ‘correct’ as possible. But, those of you that get upset about seeing various plants on this list need to understand something – I am not the taxonomist or botanist that classified them! Getting mad at me for having a Solanaceae plant on this list, that you ‘like’ for whatever reason, is not going to change its classification in the plant kingdom, and no, I will not take a plant off the list unless it can be proven that it is not, in fact, part of the Solanaceae family (Some plants have been reclassified as science progresses.).

A little bit about Nightshades:

A large family of plants grown in the shade of night called Solanaceae. These vegetables and fruits contain a substance, called alkaloids, which may be responsible for some health problems including muscle pain, morning stiffness, poor healing, acid reflux, insomnia,  gallbladder problems, arthritis and other inflammatory problems.

These alkaloids are produced by the plants to protect them from harmful insects.

However, these substances can act like chemical substances and have strong physiological effects in humans.

There are four basic types of alkaloids found in nightshade plants. These types are:

(1) Steroid alkaloids, which contain a fairly complicated fused ring structure and are found in most food nightshades including potato and tomato.
(2) Tropane alkaloids, all originating from the simple amino acid ornithine and found in fewer of the overall nightshades, but more extensively researched due to their strong drug-like properties
(3) Pyrrolizidine alkaloid.*
(4) Indole alkaloids.*
*Both important groups from a drug standpoint.

Solanine
Solanine is the toxin (Glycoalkaloid Poison) contained in all nightshade plants such as tomatoes, potatoes, and goji berries. It can occur naturally in any part of the plant, including the leaves, fruit, and tubers. Solanine has fungicidal and pesticidal properties. Again, it is one of the plant’s natural defenses.

*This is about as in-depth about why nightshades can cause trouble for folks that I intend to get into. You can find a ton of information online if you search for information about:

  • nightshades
  • no nightshade diet
  • solanine
  • solanine toxcity syndrome

Nightshade Vegetables:

  • Banana Peppers
  • Cayenne
  • Chili Peppers
  • Datil
  • Eggplant
  • Habanero
  • Jalapeno Peppers
  • Paprika
  • Pimentos
  • Potatoes (sweet potatoes are okay)
  • Sweet Peppers (black pepper is okay)
  • Thai Peppers
  • Tomatillos
  • Potatoes
  • Wax Peppers

Nightshade Fruits:

  • Goji Berries/Wolfberry
  • Gooseberry/Cape Gooseberry/Ground Cherry
  • Jerusalem Cherries
  • Pepino
  • Tamarillo
  • Tomatoes

Herbs / Plants:

  • Ashwagandha
  • Banewort (another name for nightshade)
  • Belladonna / Atropa Belladonna (used in Homeopathy, found in Viagra)
  • Bittersweet (Atropine Belladonna)
  • Brugmansia
  • Datura
  • Devil’s Cherries (another name for nightshade)
  • Devil’s Herb (another name for nightshade)
  • Divale (another name for nightshade)
  • Dubiosia
  • Dwale (another name for nightshade)
  • Dwayberry (another name for nightshade)
  • Great Morel (another name for nightshade)
  • Henbane
  • Hyoscyamus
  • Jimson Weed
  • Mandrake
  • Mandragore
  • Nightshade / Deadly Nightshade
  • Petunias (yes, the flower)
  • Solanum
  • Tobacco

*I may have a few of the above on the ‘wrong’ lists…but the point of putting this all down in list form is to help you sort out what in your diet might be causing you to suffer from muscle pain, morning stiffness, poor healing, acid reflux, insomnia,  gallbladder problems, arthritis and other inflammatory problems.

Other foods that contain solanine:

*As it turns out, although the healthy divine little blueberry fruits are not a nightshade plant, they do contain solanine. In the spirit of being cautious here is a list of non-nightshade plants (specifically not in the Solanaceae family) that contain solanine:

  • Apples
  • Cherries
  • Sugar beets
  • Huckleberries
  • Okra
  • Artichokes

Other forms of ‘food’ that can contain solanine:

  • Modified Food Starch (Be cautious of starch if it doesn’t say where it’s derived from.)
  • Starch (*If it doesn’t say where it’s derived from, check with the manufacturer)
  • Yeast (*Most yeast contains potato, both baking yeast and beer yeast. **Red Star yeast does not contain potato.)
  • Shellac Wax (comes from Lac beetle that feeds on Wolfberry plants, found on shiny fruit and veggies, commonly not listed in ingredients)
  • Palmitate Vitamin A (In margarine and milk, it’s derived from potatoes.)

Medicines and Chemicals:

  • Acrylamide
  • Atropine
  • Chaconine
  • Hyoscine (another name for scopolamine)
  • Nicotine
  • Scopolamine (common in motion sickness meds)
  • Solanine
  • Viagra (contains belladonna)

Not to be mistaken for Nightshades:

  • Black Pepper
  • White Pepper
  • Green Peppercorns
  • Sichuan Pepper
  • Tasmannia
  • Long Pepper

Another note on starch:
Shredded Cheese often contains potato starch, food manufacturers add it so the cheese will not clump. I now buy my cheese in blocks and shred it myself. I often pre-shred small amounts from the block.  A little extra work yes, but avoiding the muscle pain and belly aches are worth the work.

*One of my readers pointed out that the problem with nightshade vegetables and fruits is possibly the Lectin. Here is a good article about Digestive and immune distress due to Lectin.

As a last note:
I’ve known for a long time that I have to be very careful eating nightshade plants. It is probably not a coincidence that I had to have my gall bladder removed in my late 30’s.

Solanine cannot be destroyed by cooking at high temps – other than in one case: deep frying is the only way it can be destroyed in potatoes. And since I don’t usually like deep fried foods of any sort I rarely eat fries anyhow.

So you will notice that I will be very cautious about adding nightshades into my diet. When I do it will be in small amounts.

*Update

To all who do not agree that there could be such a ‘beast’ as ‘night shade’ sensitivity.

Due to a recent complaint from a reader, who believes that I have not stated clearly enough that this list and journal is based on my experience – I want to once again state that:

This journal is based on my experience. It is meant to provoke thought. I want you, the reader, to question everything you are told, especially if you, like me, have battled debilitating pain and illness most of your life.

Question everything. Including this ‘list’. As I believe I mentioned before, there is no ‘official’ list out there. That is why I worked to compile this list and share it with others. It may by no means be complete, and I have stated that on some of the items on the list that I myself am not even sure how accurate their place on the list is. I have even added, deleted, and amended this list with the help of my readers.

When something one needs is not ‘out there’…one creates it! Hence this list!

I am not a medical professional. I have never claimed to be such. I have stated over and over: “what worked for me – may not work for you.” And just in case I have not stated this clearly enough for the reader that decided to take me to task – this is based on my experience, and my experience was extreme.

  1. I know this is an old post, but I just wanted to add my own experiences here. I am INCREDIBLY sensitive to nightshades, particularly solanine, and I have found that beetroot (related to sugar beet, so not surprising) definitely contains solanine. Also, some of your readers may find that other medicinal herbs that are neither nightshades, nor contain solanine, cause symptoms. Solanine is an anticholinesterase compound, and other herbs such as Devil’s Claw also have anticholinesterases. (I am currently experiencing a whopper of a headache thanks to using Devil’s Claw, topically, for another headache – oh how ironic.)

    Another one I have found to cause problems is Amla, otherwise known as Indian Gooseberry, and in a lot of whole foods-based vitamin C products. Very effective fruit, but not good with solanine sensitivity. I hope this helps someone!

    • mollie nickle permalink

      are u saying that beets such as what u buy when u buy a can of beets, are in the nightshade family?

      • They are not in the Solanaceae family – but I have read a few articles from others that mention other edibles that contain solanine – basically, someone that suspects that solanine could be causing trouble in their diet/health may want to be cautious about eating the following:
        • Blueberries
        • Apples
        • Cherries
        • Sugar beets
        • Huckleberries
        • Okra
        • Artichokes

        I myself eat the items above, but I keep the amounts that I eat limited. Another thought – apples in particular end up covered in pesticides throughout their growing process – I now specifically buy only local organic apples in season. May not be as pretty as those grown conventionally, but, I would rather be safe. On another note, if I eat apples too often I suffer stomach cramps…

        Do a google search for “The Health Coach”, he has a wonderful article that relates to Nighshades and inflammation.

    I think this is a great list and it was very thoughtful of you to put it together and share it. Thank you.

  3. Your entire article is insightful, highly intelligent, and informative. Kudos to you for sharing. I have been diagnosed with Lyme’s twice in my life, wake every day ache-full in all of my joints plus a headache. I am now 66 years young, and don’t see things changing a whole lot in the future. I have been sensitive to nightshade plants and have avoided them for years. But, I think the Lyme’s critter is an invasive sort of spirochete….probably will be with me all of the rest of my life!
    Little do we know about other, more miniscule ‘bugs’, and the havoc that they may do if we are bitten. I guess that is LIFE!

    • mollie nickle permalink

      try sarasparilla for your lyme disease. i use it and seems to help. it is used to treat the spirochete that causes syphillis, so i figure it may help with any spirochete.

      • Hi Mollie, I did not know that! Thank you. As I myself have struggled with post-Lyme Syndrome I will do just that.
        ~Amy

    Thank you, I just found out that I am intollerant of potatos and your list is a great help on what to avoid, shame the medical profession can not be as helpful.

  7. After many years, I found out tomatoes have been the culprit for irritating my skin to the point of bleeding when scratching, I never had eggplant until one evening my friend made me taste hers and my tongue instantly felt like needles were on it – I appreciate your hard work and sharing this so much and I continue to determine all that I am affected by – thank you 🙂

  8. 04 April 2017…And she’s back. No. I will not let you have a voice in my blog [ ]. You were rude to me; you were rude to some of my readers. I have, and did, delete all of your posts and links.

    And again, let me repeat: I will not delete the quote that infuriated me so badly as it is exactly what many of us with disorders like Fibromyalgia hear, verbatim, from all sorts of “health-care providers.” In fact this past winter a very dear friend of mine had a very bad run-in with a health care provider with a bad attitude about Fibromyalgia. Yes, that page is on the negative side, I have never said otherwise. It was written in an absolute fury to address insensitive treatment by any and all health-care providers towards those of us with disorders such as Fibromyalgia.

    You lashed out at me and some of my readers in the very beginning with your very first post because one of your clients questioned you (which they had every right to do), and you have made it obvious that you do not like that I will not back down and take Ashwagandha off the Solanaceae list.

    I suspect from the tone of your last contact to me, and this most recent one, that you regret your brash and rude outburst to my readers and I. Regret, can be a good thing, if you use it to have more understanding and compassion with disorders that you still do not seem to understand. (As I see it: If you really did have understanding about Fibromyalgia and regret for your rude behavior you would not keep coming back here to complain about me being so unfair as to not give you a ‘voice’ in my blog.)

    Again, no. Your “help” was not help at all – just the rantings of a woman that was desperate to prove her ‘qualifications.’ Your so-called ‘help’ was not anything that belonged in this blog.

    As to you giving an opposing view to this blog – again, there are millions of pages about the benefits of many of the plants on the list. This page represents an opposing view. It is based on experience, and as so many others have attested to, my experience is not an isolated case. And so, this page, a lonely voice in the wilderness crying out for caution, and the other page, a voice raised in anguish and fury after years of insensitive and rude treatment at the hands of various ilk of health care professionals will stay. They both represent experience, and they both let others that have suffered know that they are not alone.

    You are obviously still uncomfortable with your role in the creation of the second page. Frankly. Good. You marginalized a large number of silent sufferers that have suffered all manner of insult at the hands of health care providers that lacked understanding and compassion. If your role in being the catalyst to that page makes you think twice about how you handle potential clients in the future…well. I consider that a good thing.

    The page was and is about ‘Nightshade’ plants. You and I absolutely do not agree about the role of ‘Nightshade’ plants in health. I have stated that this page will not be removed, edited, or otherwise ‘changed’ to make you, one single person, happy. This page is not about you. It’s about “Nightshade” plants and their possible role in causing health problems.

    The other page is also not about you, although you were the catalyst. It is a warning to any and all that marginalize, insult, and in any way, shape, or form look down on those of us that suffer from any type of disorder that is considered not to be ‘real.’

    You [ ] keep posting from different e-mail addresses and IP addresses, hence you are going to keep getting notifications. So once again I have added your username and e-mail address(es) to my “Blacklist” settings. I have done all I can on my end to keep you from getting notifications from my blog.

    BTW…I just checked the stats on this page alone. I have had millions of views over five years, and only three disagreeable people, with you being the only one that continually comes back to harass myself and my readers with your foolishness.

    Again, you will not get a voice here. You will not get any sympathy from me, no matter how many times you try to express your regret. To be blunt, every time I tried to give you a voice in the blog, thinking that you truly regretted your harsh comments to myself and my readers – you only used it to shove your so-called credentials and qualifications down our throats. As much as you think you were trying to offer help, no, you were not. Qualifications can often be worth less than the paper they are printed on…if even that exists. Many of us do not give a darn about your qualifications. Really. We have seen every type of “qualification” you could ever dream of.

    I can, once again, only suggest that you delete notifications. I have tried to block and blacklist all of your links, e-mail addresses and the like. To be blunt, you brought this on yourself. You lashed out in anger when I would not take Ashwagandha and Gooseberry off the list, and you lashed out at some of my readers – and you are the one that keeps returning.

    To be blunt: “Go away, you are not welcome here.”

    ~Amy
    addendum: I found the post [ ] is so upset about. And it will not come down, I took her initials, and link-backs out of it in the very beginning, but I kept the readers response, albeit edited to avoid any link-back to [ ]. She was very rude to that particular reader, and that reader made some very valid points when she rebutted and stood up to being bullied. So, again, no. It stays, as it is appropriate to this page and the other page linked to this one.

    **My apologies for those that are reading this comment that seems so ‘out of context’. I have a person that initially posted to my journal, got into a very heated disagreement with myself and other readers – and keeps coming back to bother me because they managed to ‘subscribe’ to my journal when they posted to it. I have (and had) deleted all of their content, link backs and the like – the above is my answer to that person’s last dialog with me.

    are you sure that ashwagandha is in the nightshade family?

    • Hi Mollie, a link for you: Withania somnifera
      ~Amy

      • msn76@netzero.net permalink

        thank you so much! time to use it topically only. seems to increase dry mouth symptoms considerably.

      • msn76@netzero.net permalink

        what is the difference between blueberries and huckleberries, or they one and the same?

      • My apologies for missing this!
        Huckleberry (Vaccinium ovatum) is from the Ericaceae family.
        Highbush Bluberries (Vaccinium corymbosum) are also from the Ericaceae family.
        Huckleberries and highbush blueberries are native to North America, and are close ‘cousins’, the evergreen huckleberry (Vaccinium ovatum Pursh), also known as the California huckleberry, is found only in California and the Pacific Northwest.

        But unfortunately, even though they are not in the Solanaceae family, they do contain solanine. So, for anyone that is trying to avoid solanine, I would exercise caution.

        ~Amy

      • mollie nickle permalink

        so sorry that you have had to go through the passing of your Mom. that is not an easy thing. i dont see huckleberries on your list anymore. does that mean they , and blueberries are not nightshades?

      • Thank you. It is definitely not easy. Huckleberries are still included on the list, actually they were listed in a paragraph about blueberries below the list – the bulk of the list is specifically of plants that are in the Solanaceae family. (I just edited the page for clarity.)

        Huckelberries are ‘cousins’ to Blueberries and do contain solanine, even though they are not in the Solanaceae family. Basically, my suggestion for anyone that suspects they have a problem with solanine sensitivity would be to eliminate them for a while, and introduce only one of them back into your diet and see how you respond.

    I never knew any of this….but then a few months back started garden with eggplants, chiles, and tomatoes. My eggplant was beyond abundant, so I decided I could melt them down into soups along with tomatoes and chiles. That is when my health troubles started to take place. I thought I would be feeling healthy and wonderful, but instead I had stomach pains each time after eating the soup. Horrible menstrual cramps for first time in years, headaches, dizziness, confusion, extreme lethargy, muscle weakness, and finally culminating in recurring boils on my face. After about 2-3 months of this and not feeling right mentally I thought to google eggplants and toxins. It made perfect sense to me that I was suffering from this. It has only been a week now but I am so grateful for all the info on the net and websites such as yours….by the way, a great way to cure boils is turmeric by topically making a paste w/honey and warm watet covering boil and surrounding area. Ingest a teaspoon of it in a cup of warm water 3x/day or you can add it to Fage yoghurt (don’t use non-fat, fat helps to assimilate) and honey w/ a squeeze of lemon or lime. And a helpful website is earthclinic.com is where I got that remedy. It’s a very helpful site that I strongly recommend. Turmeric is great for MRSA too.

    Some people have trouble with the nightshade family I’m one of them ! I so love tomatoes and eggplant ! My doctor advised me against them years ago ! Ayurvedic medicine for vata ! Thank you ! It’s good to be reminded! I can eat deep fried Okra Lol!

  13. Bonnie Lo Johnstone permalink

    Finding out that nightshade made me sick was the first step in unwinding the mystery of food allergies that suddenly became part of my life in my late 50’s.
    Often a person with nightshade allergies is also sensitive or allergic to soy…but I am allergic to ALL legumes (every pea, bean, peanut, licorice, stringent…all of them!). Then flax and seeds kicked in.
    So far, that’s the extent of my food allergies.
    I’ve never been sickly or had any allergies before in my life!
    I’ve completely switched to eating organic, locally sourced food. Even on a lower income I’m able to control what I eat and know where it comes from and how it’s produced.

  14. Carolyn Paseneaux permalink

    I have been told that the problem with nightshade vegetables and fruits is the lectin, the plant protein, as it allows penetration of the wall of the stomach.

    • Thank you Carolyn. I had heard that myself and never thought to add it to my blog. For those that would like to know more about lectin follow this link.

  15. Merav Chen permalink

    Great info! I actually healed myself from crhons when I stopped eating nightshade in conjunction with being gluten free, dairy free and sugar free. Good luck to you!

  16. Thank you so much! I have ulcerative colitis and foods from the nightshade family are very, very problematic and other foods with solanine. Also any veg from cruciferous family I.e. Broccoli, Brussel Sprouts, cabbage just to name 3. Hope this helps other sufferers. Keep up the good work!

    Thank you, I’m starting today to eliminate nightshade for 3 months. At first thought Lymes was the culprit, maybe still to blame, but now after reading tons about nightshade and your story I convinced that this could be the answer. Thanks again for sharing!

  21. Amy,

    I just wanted to thank you for posting this information. Please do not be dissuaded by criticisms that this is not a scientific, experiment-based compilation of information, but rather a journal of knowledge you have acquired through experience. There’s nothing wrong with a personal journal, and I have found this site to be very useful.

    Personally, I demand a high level of quality from any resource I use. I graduated from college summa cum laude, so I am quite capable of determining the value of a source of information. If people are unable to draw useful information from what you have posted it’s their fault, not yours.

    You have done a very good job with this site, and are providing a great service to your readers.
    Thank you.

  22. Mary McKay permalink

    Thank you for this list. And sometimes things are best from personal knowledge! I have been doctoring for 2 years, i have finally found my reaction to nightshades are the reason for my lower abdomen pain. After many tests, and agonizing over wether or not i was crazy. I found my answer. This list is def right on! Now i can share it with my family, just in case somebody else has these sensitivities.

    I am trying to sort out my herbal teas and would like to know from anyone hosting or visiting here whether or not Holy Basil Tea (Tulsi) is a nightshade?

    • Hello Martha, my mom passed away last fall and at this point I have been monitoring my journal, but rarely posting. So I thank you for your patience in waiting for me to get back to you with an answer about Tulsi.

      No, it is not in the nightshade family. Here is the breakdown at Wikipedia: Ocimum tenuiflorum

      My best to you on your health journey,
      ~Amy

  26. Great list! Just been told to stay off this deadly family and it helped no end. I have passed it on to a friend who is having to do the same – we’re stoked that chips are back on the menu!

  27. Carlyn permalink

    Thanks so much for this info.

  28. Thanks. Very detailed. After years of being I’ll and not knowing why, I found out that I’m allergic to nightshade, which are my favorite. Most sites just name the obvious you go into more details. Thank you.

  29. Kathryn permalink

    Thank you for all your hard work compiling this list. I developed severe arthritis, muscle aches, morning stiffness a few years ago and recently tested allergic to nightshade foods. Thank you for the list!

  30. Liz permalink

    They actually have a test for this?

    • Hello Liz, as far as I know, via traditional medical testing, no. It is usually diagnosed by symptoms and by ruling out other diet and/or environmental allergies. The most common symptoms of a nightshade/solanine allergy are as follows:

      1. Achy Muscles and Joints: Continuous exposure to nightshades can lead to muscles and joints aching or cramping frequently. The muscles may also be stiff, particularly when first moved in the morning.
      2. Inflammation: As with most allergies and autoimmune issues, internal inflammation is a big issue with nightshade intolerance and allergy.
      3. Sensitive Nerves: The nerves in your body may feel more sensitive or as if they are on fire.
      4. Hip Pain: Your hips and surrounding tendons might feel tender and be painful when moved or touched.
      5. Heartburn: Some experience heartburn after eating nightshades.
      6. Rash: A rash, commonly on the arms or trunk, may appear when nightshades are ingested.

      You might also be interested in the looking up the work and insights of Michael Lebowitz D.C. as they pertain to solanine toxicity.

    Hi Amy. Thank you for posting this information and you experiences/research. Do you have any insight on Salsify ?

    • Hello Tammi,
      Here is a link for you:Salsify (Tragopogon porrifolius)
      *A root vegetable belonging to the dandelion family, salsify is also known as the oyster plant because of its oystery taste when cooked. The root is similar in appearance to a long, thin parsnip, with creamy white flesh and a thick skin. In the same way as many root vegetables, salsify can be boiled, mashed or used in soups and stews.

    Do you know whether Mangosteen, Acai, or Noni cause problems? What about Great Morel?
    I also seem to have trouble when I eat sprouts. I’m trying grain free for now and I think it’s cut down on inflammation. I know it has improved my digestive greatly.

    • Hi Cori, As far as I can find:
      Mangosteen
      Açaí
      Noni

      They should be ‘okay’…meaning, I have not seen them noted on any ‘nightshade’ lists. As for sprouts, I have heard many people say that they had to stop buying them commercially and had to prepare them themselves if they did not want to get sick from them.

      Deadly Nightshade is often known as Great Morel, so if you are not talking about the mushroom “Great Morel” then no, you should not injest it if you suspect you have a sensitivity to solanine. (The mushroom is not a Solanaceae plant and to my understanding does not contain solanine.)

  35. Stephanie Epperson permalink

    This may be a dumb question. Are sugar beets in the same category of golden root beets- and therefore you avoid? I ask because we have identified nightshadea as a serious trigger for my mother’s RA. Apples do trigger, and I saw your other list (beets,etc). Thank you for this list! It really helps

  36. I too have found I am ultra sensitive to nightshade plants. I suffer with inflammation in my tiny veins all over my body. I have suffered with Microvascular Angina, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Osteoarthritis, UTI’s and Temporal Arteritis. I have found that peanuts and milk cause extreme inflammation in my body. If I cheat and have spaghetti/ with tomato sauce or even mashed potatoes I get a flare up of inflammation. Thank you for your interest in helping others.

  37. Jennie permalink

    Thank you for posting Amy. I have known that I have a nightshade sensitivity for a long time. But I had an aha! moment when I saw the note about Palmitate added to milk. That explains one frustrating mystery about continued headaches.
