Industry spokes persons and publications of various national governments assure us that MSG is good for us, with no detrimental effects.
Such assurances are totally meaningless to those of us who find even small amounts of MSG can cause a feeling of swelling head, headache, spaciness, anxiety, and make it
difficult to sleep.
(Going on a chocolate binge can do the same to me.)
Hydrolyzed Protein (HP) is made from various foods (such as soybeans, corn, wheat, or milk whey) by acid hydrolysis.
This is usually made into flavor enhancers for processed foods. HP is often used with MSG.
HP causes me pronounced after-taste and mouth / tongue swelling, which keeps me from using numerous “quick meal” kits.
Learn from others, but trust your own observations.
