Someone excludes yeast from the diet due to the content of monosodium glutamate. What is the situation with it really like?

  • glutamate is commonly found in the human body and is, among other things, important for the proper functioning of the brain
  • it is glutamic acid, one of the common amino acids found in all proteins
  • cereal proteins contain about 40% glutamic acid
  • if glutamic acid is bound in protein, we can not taste it, we can not feel it
  • taste perceptions are evoked only when glutamic acid is free, thus released from the protein
  • you will find free glutamic acid in e.g.:
    - ripe tomatoes
    - ripening food such as parmesan
    - fermented food - tempeh, miso pasta, shoyu, tamari
    - hydrolysed proteins - for example in the preparation of yeast extract, in bio-bouillons
    - isolated glutamate - it is produced as glutamic acid, i-e. monosodium glutamate, it is a result of complex processes of fermentation from corn, beet, etc., a white powder used as an intense flavourenhancer
  • it is not important for the body if the glutamic acid gets in it as bound in protein or free
  • it is important not to receive isolated glutamate (monosodium glutamate), which is separate from other components, which it is commonly found in proteins with
