Putrescine is a diamine produced by the breakdown of amino acids in living organisms. It's found as an endogenous amine in humans.
Fruits (like oranges), fruit juices (orange juice and grapefruit juice), sauerkraut, cheddar cheeses, cod roe, soy sauce, and soy miso are high in putrescine.
In rats it had a fairly low acute oral toxicity of 2000 mg/kg body weight.
