I'm thinking about cutting back on my glutamate consumption. I eat all organic food, yet, I still see "natural flavors" and such sneaking on labels of things I'm using daily. It's looking like I'm going to have to start making all of my own... (more)

do pork rinds contain high levels of msg? my friend said that they have been known to cause lucid dreams so i did some research and it said that this was because the high level of msg in them.
Good pork rinds should only contain pork skin and salt. I have never seen MSG on the label. I just googled and found some brands with "flavored" pork rinds that do contain MSG. So be careful.
i'll be honest, i don't regularly consume either, but neither has ever cause me acute trouble. anyway, i'm a lot more concerned about rancid oils and other issues.
As I found out in my cheap paleo options question my favorite Pho places use MSG. I had hoped to have Pho restaraunts as my go to eating out place but it is not to be. Are there ANY Pho places that do not use MSG? Any listing of such anywhere? I... (more)
It is artificial and has been known to cause problems, but on what level would you put this cheat? In my mind I have some sugar/vegetable oil on the low end of the spectrum and gluten/wheat at the very top. I have been finding mixed evidence... (more)
Often when I eat MSG additives I have a bad reaction that is mainly neurological. I get really really fuzzy, can't think at all and my eyes look exhausted. This happens right after I eat it. I hate that feeling more than anything. I've had... (more)
I have been making great strides in cutting out any neofood or nonfood from my diet, and recently had to go out to eat at Applebees. I was certain that I made the right choice by getting a simple steak with shrimp and creme sauce with some... (more)
Hey everyone - I hope someone here hear can answer this 2 part question for me :-) 1) How does the gluten protein survive high heat surfaces such as the grill? From what i understand, a protein's activity is based on their structural... (more)
I don't think MSG is a problem except for the fact it induces overeating through hyperpalatibility. We have discussed the odious Dr. Blaylock here before, who peddles fringe alarmism and supplements to fix the alarmist issues. Needless to say,... (more)
Ok, I don't know what I was thinking (or wasn't thinking), but I ate something the other day that had MSG in it. It was spelled out in the ing list (sausage). I was in a bind and had to eat something. Anyway, it didn't register in my mind as MSG... (more)
Preemptive apology: I know discussing MSG is tired and overdone, and I'm not trying to rehash the old arguments. Instead, I want to see if anyone can help me solve a dilemma that I'm very motivated to solve by figuring out how my understanding is... (more)
Just bought a seafood spice mix to go with the wild salmon that I microwaved for lunch (don't get me started!). It says: salt, spices, dehydrated garlic, paprika and dehydrated onion. What can the food companies include under "spices"? Oh, whew!... (more)
I feel like my tasetbuds are much less sensitive than they used to be, and now that I've started eating Paleo/Primal I'm trying to stay away from too much salt. I think it's going to be one my hardest addictions to break. I've already conquered... (more)
So Whole Foods had a blow-out sale on cases of Pacific Organic Kosher Chicken Broth. I bought a case, but somehow I didn't notice a particular ingredient in there- autolyzed yeast extract (which is odd since I've been an ingredient nazi for quite... (more)
Glutamic acid is produced naturally in the human and mammalian body. It is naturally present in the meat we eat and is responsible for the pleasurable taste of 'umami' which makes meat taste good. So if this is the case, then why does glutamic... (more)

There is a European Meat/Deli/Grocery store near where I live and they have cheeses, sausages, ham etc. I really want to buy some cheese and sausage from there but I don't know if the sausages have MSG in them. I don't think the store makes their... (more)
I'm sure MSG was something I regularly consumed on previous SAD diet without noticeable effects. A couple months ago (after being paleo for 8 weeks) i went to a chinese buffet and had some shrimp and sauce - after we left I had mild symptoms -... (more)
