Hydrolyzed Proteins/msg May Cause Symptoms Similar To celiac disease

Recommended Posts

Check out Wikipedia.org, key word Hydrolyzed proteins/MSG.

Some people may have a sensitive to wheat, corn, soy protein, edible strains of yeast because their bodies are sensitive not to gluten but to hydrolyzed proteins.

See article at www.wikipedia.org, key words, hydrolyzed proteins. This will then direct you to Monosodium glutamate, and glutamic acid.

Maybe this will help some people sensitive to many other foods.

good luck

I keep a daily food journal. 2 days ago I eliminated soy, because of loose bowels

note of interest, eating some chinese foods, gave me extreme abdominal pain

Are MSG and hydrolyzed protein related?

Yes. MSG is the sodium salt of glutamic acid. Glutamic acid is an amino acid, one of the building blocks of protein. It is found in virtually all food and, in abundance, in food that is high in protein, including meat, poultry, cheeses, and fish.

Hydrolyzed proteins, used by the food industry to enhance flavor, are simply proteins that have been chemically broken apart into amino acids. The chemical breakdown of proteins may result in the formation of free glutamate that joins with free sodium to form MSG. In this case, the presence of MSG does not need to be disclosed on labeling. Labeling is required when MSG is added as a direct ingredient. SEE USDA-Common Questions ( US Dept. of Agriculture, Food Safety and Inspection Service)

Also I direct you to a great site at www.truthinlabeling.org. See article entitled:

Processed free glutamic acid kills brain cells

(produces brain lesions)

I was diagnosed with MS back in 1996

Yes, the government has done its best to protect the MSG and food industries. It is rare that MSG needs to be disclosed. If an ingredient is not 100% MSG, then the label doesn't have to say MSG. If the MSG is an ingredient of any ingredient (tricky, huh?), it does not need to be disclosed.

Here is a good chart of what definitely or might contain MSG:
