In brief: Pharmacology

Not sure.
There is some controversial data that suggests that fermented foods should be avoided in combination with ssri use. The main risk is with MAO inhibitors. Ssri may have inhibition over mao-a but not over mao-b leaving enough if this to be able to handle the tyramine found in fermented foods.
