What does a a slight, warm and tingling sensation on the palms of my hands mean? It invariably occurs within 10 minutes after eating any chicken, and it does not matter the cooking method. It is organic, free range chicken.c

oh, if you take it, then that could be it. Given that you have a heighten amount of BA in your system, even a little in the chicken could set you over the top.

Not exactly what I was looking for, but here are a couple: http://www.nutritionexpress.com/showarticle.aspx?articleid=1286 http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3407982/ Here's a quote from teh second: "B-Alanine precautions relate to its potential to induce paraesthesia, characterized by heightened sensitivity of nociceptive neurons that transmit neuropathic pain, which lead to flushing and prickly sensations on the skin"

Interesting. It feels the exact same as when I take beta-alanine, and so there was a small murmur of an idea that this could be it.

Doesn't sound like an allergy. Sounds like paresthesia related to beta-alanine. This is a very common side effect for athletes who take beta-alanine as a supplement. The studies I have read (cannot find a link, but I will look for one) suggest that consuming more than 10 mg per kg lean body mass is sufficient to induce paresthesia in people with beta-alanine sensitivity. Theoretically this could happen with chicken consumption, or you are sufficiently sensitive that you exhibit the symptoms at a lower level of beta-alanine.
