I have been reading some of the old posts about msg and that it is specifically gluten free (unless it is from a wheat source). The research that I have done shows that it is a free form of glutamic acid. I was curious if this extra source of glutamic acid might aid the transglutaminase (tTG) in changing the glutamines at positions p1 and p9 in the HLA-DQ2 and HLA-DQ8 molecules to glutamic acid (due to abundence of glutamic acid or change in pH levels of of the surroundings) causing the T-cell respond to the incorrect sequence in the molecules. Can the presence of the extra glutamic acid trigger a response from the immune system due to sensitivity to the similarity in the change of gluten by tTG?

Are you proposing that MSG may mimic gluten intolerance, or add to it? I don't profess to understand all the chemistry, but that sounds pretty far-fetched to me, especially any PH effect. I'm guessing that doctors & researchers would have seen that connection right off. But, who knows, you could win a Nobel prize or something! A quick trip to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monosodium_glutamate reveals several interesting aspects of Glutamate & Glutamine ( I take 4.5g daily as a powdered supplement ). BTW, as far as I know, I personally have never had a problem with MSG, so have never paid much attention to it. Please refer to the link for a listing of naturally occurring glutamate levels in food. This is good info I would recommend to everyone.

"Many people believe that MSG Speeds up the digestion of healthy proteins.

As a result of consuming MSG or protein-based foods, a natural elevation of the blood glutamate level will occur. That level will return to "baseline" (or the level before eating) in about three hours, no matter what the source of glutamate.

Glutamine, and the closely-related compound glutamate, are two amino acids that are critical to human health. In humans, animals, and plants, glutamine and glutamate are transformed into each other as part of numerous physiological processes. The roles of these amino acids in human diseases were intensively researched during the past decade and continue to be the subject of scrutiny. One area of interest is their potential health effects when they are provided in addition to the normal dietary intake that is already several grams per day.

Glutamine has been recommended by nutritionists as a dietary supplement for several serious disease conditions and there is growing research support for this action. Hospital dietitians are aware of the value of administering glutamine in parenteral nutrition (IV nutrition) for critically ill patients, and especially for patients who have had intestinal surgery, but physicians rarely recommend glutamine supplementation in other situations for which it may be indicated. Therefore, it is valuable for other health care providers to be familiar with the over-the-counter availability and uses of glutamine for supplementation purposes."

and of special interest to the MSG sensitive:

"(in the United States) Under current FDA regulations, significant amounts of free glutamate can be included in food under the following ingredient labels: MSG, monosodium glutamate, glutamic acid, hydrolyzed protein, autolyzed protein, textured protein, yeast extract, autolyzed yeast extract, protein isolate, soy sauce, modified food starch, modified corn starch, calcium caseinate, and sodium caseinate. In some cases, significant amounts of free glutamate are also added as broth, maltodextrin, seasonings, or natural flavor."

Theres lots more, also click on the glutamic acid link. best regards, lm

In response to MSG and glutamates, etc., I need to know if "autolyzed (sic) yeast extract: listed in chicken broth, is potent to someone with celiac disease. I suspect it is used as falvoring, i.e. MSG.

My wife was diagnosed in '98 with celiac disease (blood test only), also lactose intolernace, and has lost about 30 pounds in the last three months (shortly after suspect TIA) but may have now stablized at about 106 lbs, dressed, at 5'4". Trying very hard to maintain strict diet and haven't been able to find out if small intestine has flatened villa and/or there is musous damage to wall, which I suspect is the cause for malabsorption. Will find out in a couple of days. Have her on probiotics, two types (Florastor), enzymes, vitamins, etc. She is very depressed but continues to work as OTR with autistic children. Buy from Whole Foods and bread from Celiac Free local restaruant/bakery that has a celiac disease free menu.

Can't find a local GI speacialist or someone locally that knows what they are doing in this area. I guess I need to find a local celiac disease support group.

Tired of printing up list that are all suspect because of changing contents or discoveries that things are now suspect, or or no longer suspect.

Does any one know how the phase two tests is coming along in Palo Alto, Calif. I am sorry but I don't have the specific info as I am work, but it was the company that got a 21 mil grant to proceed with its specicifc molecule testing.

Sorry for covering to many areas.yeast

I do have a toll free number, but being new to this site, not sure that I can provide it.

Any info is appreciated,

Maximumbob

I know before I was diagnosed with celiac I was told to avoid all msg for reactions, example: chinese food because I felt so terrible after I ate it, neck pain, light headed heart palps and severe fatigue and of course other minor things but now I wonder if it was the celiac? but otherwise there is a list of symptoms in reaction to forms of msg here is that site............. http://vm.cfsan.fda.gov/~lrd/msg.txt and here is a way to identify hidden types of msg in food labels .......... http://curezone.com/foods/msg.asp and here is last but not least the answer to your question, states here that it is a primary source for msg. I hope this helps http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yeast_extract. and this site but you have to read through it I know its on this page says it may be intolerant for celiacs, I guess be safe than sorry? http://www.e-celiacs.org/2-Gluten-Free%20P...tion%20Diet.htm

All I know is that I very much react to MSG. It actually gives me symptoms similar to a mild multiple sclerosis flare up. I don't know if I react because it is related to the whole gluten intolerance thing, or if it because of my MS though.

I just wanted to add what I'd recently transcribed from a tv health show I watch. I'm very confused about gluten being in MSG - I've read it is and it isn't. Either way, it doesn't sound very healthy. I thought anyone reading about MSG might be able to use this to further their research:

    • Washing Dishes
      Gluten is a very sticky protein that cannot be removed easily. Non porous items can be washed safely and effectively, being very careful to throughly rinse, use a dedicated sponge/washcloth to wash. If washed by hand wash and rinse under hot running water not in a sink of water if you don't have a dedicated gluten free kitchen. My kitchen is totally gluten free and I still rinse under running water. I attempted to use the dishwasher for the first time yesterday and I feel like I've been glutened so I'm not sure if it's safe or not. There was no gluten containing dishes in it, but it's a rental house so God knows how the previous tenants used it and whether there may be any lingering gluten in it. I also have other issues that cause a lot of the same problems so I'm going to keep trying to use it for a few days and see if I continue to feel glutened or not. As far as counter tops, sinks etc, any non porous surfaces can be wiped clean, but it takes multiple wipe downs with multiple sponges. Thoroughly wipe down and rinse out the sink to rid it off any lose gluten particles. The same thing I did when first going gluten free. Only the kitchen I had then had laminated counter tops that were all scratched up. There is no getting gluten out of those kind of counter tops or cracks around the sink, etc. The ONLY way to possibly destroy/remove gluten from surfaces it's stuck in is to heat it above temperatures most things cannot tolerate and not all ovens can reach. You're looking at like 600°-700° F for a minimum of 30 min. So some stuff can be effectively cleaned in the self cleaning mode of an oven if it has one. Most cookware and utensils cannot tolerate those temperatures though and it's impossible to heat counters and other items to that temperature. Therefore being in a blended house is very risky if not done right. When I went gluten free everyone in my house went gluten free. Except the fish, you can't find gluten free fish food. My husband who shouldn't eat gluten anyway is gluten free and all our animals are on a grain free diet. Even my snake is gluten free since I breed my own feeder mice and feed them a gluten free organic diet. 
    • to biopsy or not?
      A small suggestion........for banana bread, try the King Arthur gluten free banana bread mix.  Yeah, I know......it's a mix but sometimes, time is short and a mix works well.  My husband and I were shocked at how good this is!  it rose up high and beautiful in the oven and has a really good banana flavor to it.  Really....give it a try.  It is so easy to make also! http://www.kingarthurflour.com/shop/items/gluten-free-banana-bread   The ATK cookbook is a keeper for every Celiac!
    • Oat Flour making me sick?
      Yup.....what she said!  In non-porous materials such as stainless steel or aluminum pans, a good washing is all you need to make the pan safe to use.
    • Hawaiian-style BBQ Shrimp (Gluten-Free)
      Mayonnaise is the key to this recipe, which delivers tasty, tangy, golden grilled shrimp. View the full article
    • Oat Flour making me sick?
      I wouldn't be afraid to use a stainless steel pot that other things had been cooked in AS LONG AS YOU WASH THEM VERY WELL before making her food.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
