Frustrated With Conflicting Msg Reports And Link To Celiac
Posted 20 November 2012 - 05:31 PM
MONOSODIUM GLUTAMATE (MSG)
Monosodium glutamate is the sodium salt of glutamic acid, an amino acid present in virtually all proteins, including meats, vegetables, poultry, cheese, cow's milk, and human milk.
The process for producing MSG imported from some parts of world cannot be confirmed. MSG could be produced from wheat gluten in those areas.
It is therefore recommended that Celiac- Sprue patients exercise caution in using this ingredient.

Some people, including some celiacs, react to concentrated MSG. But it has nothing to do with celiac disease. If MSG is derived from wheat, in the US it must by federal law be clearly disclosed as "wheat" on the label. Canada has a similar rule.
Hydrolyzed protein, like any protein, is a source of MSG. Again, in the US (and in Canada) if the protein is wheat protein (gluten), then the word "wheat" must appear on the label.
There are things we need to worry about. MSG is definitely not one of them.
If you have a credible source that says otherwise, please provide a link.

So the PC way to say this is read the label and know the label laws the country of origin for the product.
That being said some people are sensitive/intolerant to MSG. If it makes you sick, don't eat it.
