I didn't notice a reaction to MSG until I became aware of my celiacs. I have the same reaction to it as I do with gluten. It could be from the damage already caused to your stomach and intestines. Try cutting it out.
An example is I eat McCormick Taco seasoning for my chicken Taco salad, and never have a problem. One time my husband accidentally bought the low sodium kind (also gluten-free) and i was in the bathroom within an hour with horrible stomach pains. The only difference between the two is the MSG replaces the sodium. I've tested this a few times and now I have to avoid that too. Geeze, sometimes I feel like there's nothing to eat.

Since going on a gluten-free diet, MSG does make me (briefly) ill. It also makes me eat half a bag of potato chips in about 5 minutes, so its probably a good thing I've cut it out...

I have a newly diagnosed son and I've been using FoodFacts.com to help me figure out if some foods have gluten. Do any of you use that? It seemed reliable, but today I looked up Dorito's .. which we thought were ok .. and it came up as "AVOID" due to monosodium glutamate (wheat) and artificial colors (gluten). Thoughts? He doesn't have belly symptoms, he is diabetic and was diagnosed as a celiac through a blood test and biopsy.

Doritos refers to a brand which covers a number of products. Some of them contain wheat, but it is not from the MSG.

MSG is gluten-free. Artificial colors are not the best thing for you, but they are also gluten-free.

Here's Frito Lays list for the US. They have some they test and some they don't test for gluten but do not add gluten to.

Don't rely on those programs for the final word on product ingredients. They are good for suggestons. You still need to read the ingredients as they can change.

Last time I checked, the Nacho Cheese Doritos were a no-no . . . not because of MSG but because there was wheat flour in them. The Cool Ranch Doritos are OK.

Never had a problem with MSG, nor do I avoid it. I only care about wheat, barley, rye, and of course oats. Although, if I had inadvertently eaten something containing a very small amount of oats, I wouldn't freak out about it.

Sounds like foodfacts isn't too reliable. As noted, SOME Doritos have gluten, but not from MSG or artificial color (never found gluten in artificial colors).
