The Autoimmune Protocol eliminate all nightshade foods. The fermented vegetables are allowed but what about the fermented nightshades? Are they allowed? Thank you!

If you're doing AIP, you're doing for a reason.  Self-procribed or health care professionall suggestion?

My wife did it for a LONG time...

... I'll have the wild salmon & spinach salad..... for most meals.  Dinner for breakfast

The more adherent you are, the better it will work. She was off eggs & night shades for nearly a year.

My guess = No.

Fermenting a vegetable doesn't remove the lectin, saponin or alter the capsaicin content of the nightshade itself (as far as I know), so my guess is that you should still avoid them. The lectin, saponin and/or capsaicin in nightshades are what people find problematic.
