A true story; it may be of interest to you.

We went to a picnic hosted by my wife's brother.
He cooked everything, a real break for us.
(Seems like we're cooking all the time.)
"Grilled chicken?" he offered.
I verified there were no spices, then passed it over to my son.
Light grilling does make amines at a low level, but my son can handle these.
"Corn, hot off the grill?" he continued.
My son is ok with salicylates, so again I said yes.
He ate two ears, then some salad, and some safe cookies that we brought from home.
Later that evening I overheard her brother, talking to friends.
"Yeah, I soaked the corn over night.
That's why it stayed nice and moist; didn't get dried out on the grill."
Oh my God!  I didn't even think to ask.
Grains soaked in water at room temperature or above are the worst!
The corn spent 18 hours fermenting - generating msg.
I knew the next day would be terible.
Sure enough, we had to pick up my son from school before lunch.
The only good news is, I'm finally able to predict his reactions in advance,
(if I am given all the information),
and those predictions usually come true.
Managing my son's disorder is slowly becoming a science,
and less of a mysterious black art.

Other huge reactors for my son are the alternative yeast-free breads,
slow-rising, that ferment for hours.
This is no surprise to you, but should probably be listed on your site.
Many of us are afraid of yeast, often without cause,
or we may come from a background of candida,
so we naturally gravitate towards these breads.
Besides, how else can we get breads without part h soy oil?
But these "natural" breads are *real* bad!
Here's something from the French Meadow site.

We definitely see the reaction to malt, which was not anticipated by the failsafe group.
Your site is definitely more comprehensive, with regard to msg, than any other.

Thanks,
KD

IF MSG ISN'T HARMFUL, WHY IS IT HIDDEN?
