MSG

Posted on 08.06.10 8:12PM under Alcohol

So I just read that MSG is autolyzed yeast.

Seems strange to me that autolysis is a nasty off flavor in beer yet it could be such a guilty pleasure in food from “Chinese” to chips.

Not that I’ve ever had, or necessarily believe in all that much, the migraine. But under the BBQ sauce trigger, they call out that another name for MSG in the ingredient list is “autolyzed yeast”, among some other things I wouldn’t even necessarily call foul against.

In the end, the article is a bunch of rubbish, but my advice is to eat a lot and drink a lot and sleep a lot. And if what you’re drinking contains alcohol, you should also drink a lot of water.
