Please tell me what MSG is made from and why as a Celiac we should not have anything with MSG in it?

Last I saw MSG (monosodium glutamate) was ok for celiacs, or at least it was listed on safe list on this sites homepage. In any case, MSG is no good for you anyway, it's basically a chemical, and it's meant to bring out the flavor in foods, sort of the same as salt. It's very high in sodium, and can really comtribute to high blood pressure.

Hope this helps a little.

Lorrie,

I too have read in several places that MSG is not acceptable for people with wheat/gluten intolerances. However, when I spoke with my local nutritionist who specializes in the celiac diet, she assured me that MSG was indeed safe. So I am left in the same boat as you, wondering whether it is indeed safe, and wondering why, if it IS safe, I've read that it isn't. I too am confused on this issue.

I found that same problem, I hear contradictions in our diet everyday. In the end I do what I think is best for me, not everyone is the same. I do know that MSG is okay on the gluten free front, but as stated before not REALLY good for anyone!!

I think that MSG is one of those things that can be made from wheat OR a non-gluten grain (like corn). I suspect that MSG is fine if it is made in the US (where corn is king), but suspect if it comes from another country. I'm not sure about this, though.
