Blog hopping

Blog hopping is one of our favorite things to do. Checking out all the imaginative ways and designs of others is very interesting. We're always saving anything that might help later in our favorites just in case we wanted to compare the uniqueness of sites possibly to upgrade ours. It's a who you know world the better your affiliates of course the better off you are. That's why we're always searched driven to better ourselves.

MSG reactions

My husband was reading an article about food additives the other day because he had a really bad reaction to some usual everyday food with hidden MSG  preservatives that weren't labeled as MSG.  Here is the different aliases of MSG (MonoSodium Glutamate) to try to help you avoid them. The alias names should be outlawed so when you read a label you would know that it's MSG. This preservative can kill you in many different ways. Creating bad cancer cells is only one.




Names of ingredients that contain processed free glutamic acid (MSG)1 (Last updated February, 2011) Everyone knows that some people get reactions after eating the food ingredient monosodium glutamate --reactions that include migraine headaches, upset stomach, fuzzy thinking, diarrhea, heart irregularities, asthma, and/or mood swings. What many don’t know, is that more than 40 different ingredients contain the chemical in monosodium glutamate (processed free glutamic acid) that causes these reactions. The following list of ingredients that contain processed free glutamic acid has been compiled over the last 20 years from consumers’ reports of adverse reactions and information provided by manufacturers and food technologists.

The following list of ingredients that contain processed free glutamic acid has been compiled over the last 20 years from consumers’ reports of adverse reactions and information provided by manufacturers and food technologists. Names of ingredients that always contain processed free glutamic acid:
Glutamic acid (E 620)2, Glutamate (E 620)
Monosodium glutamate (E 621)
Monopotassium glutamate (E 622)
Calcium glutamate (E 623)
Monoammonium glutamate (E 624)
Magnesium glutamate (E 625)
Natrium glutamate
Yeast extract
Anything "hydrolyzed"
Any "hydrolyzed protein"
Calcium caseinate, Sodium caseinate
Yeast food, Yeast nutrient
Autolyzed yeast
Gelatin
Textured protein
Soy protein, soy protein concentrate
Soy protein isolate
Whey protein, whey protein concentrate
Whey protein isolate
Anything "…protein"
Vetsin
Ajinomoto
Names of ingredients that often contain or produce processed free glutamic acid:
Carrageenan (E 407)
Bouillon and broth
Stock
Any "flavors" or "flavoring"
Maltodextrin
Citric acid, Citrate (E 330)
Anything "ultra-pasteurized"
Barley malt
Pectin (E 440)
Protease
Anything "enzyme modified"
Anything containing "enzymes"
Malt extract
Soy sauce
Soy sauce extract
Anything "protein fortified"
Anything "fermented"
Seasonings
(1) Glutamic acid found in unadulterated protein does not cause adverse reactions. To cause adverse reactions, the glutamic acid must have been processed/manufactured or come from protein that has been fermented.
The following are ingredients suspected of containing or creating sufficient processed free glutamic acid to serve as MSG-reaction triggers in HIGHLY SENSITIVE people:
Corn starch Corn syrup Modified food starch Lipolyzed butter fat Dextrose
Rice syrup
Brown rice syrup Milk powder Reduced fat milk (skim; 1%; 2%)
most things low fat or no fat anything Enriched
anything Vitamin enriched
(2) E numbers are use in Europe in place of food additive names.

The following work synergistically with MSG to enhance flavor. If they are present for flavoring, so is MSG.
Disodium 5’-guanylate (E 627) Disodium 5’-inosinate (E-631) Disodium 5'-ribonucleotides (E 635)
Reminders


Low fat and no fat milk products often contain milk solids that contain MSG and many dairy products contain carrageenan, guar gum, and/or locust bean gum. Low fat and no fat versions of ice cream and cheese may not be as obvious as yogurt, milk, cream, cream cheese, cottage cheese, etc., but they are not exceptions. Protein powders contain glutamic acid, which, invariably, will be processed free glutamic acid (MSG). Individual amino acids are not always listed on labels of protein powders.

At present there is an FDA requirement to include the protein source when listing hydrolyzed protein products on labels of processed foods. Examples are hydrolyzed soy protein, hydrolyzed wheat protein, hydrolyzed pea protein, hydrolyzed whey protein, hydrolyzed, corn protein. If a tomato, for example, were whole, it would be identified as a tomato. Calling an ingredient tomato protein indicates that the tomato has been hydrolyzed, at least in part, and that processed free glutamic acid (MSG) is present. Disodium guanylate and disodium inosinate are relatively expensive food additives that work synergistically with inexpensive MSG. Their use suggests that the product has MSG in it. They would probably not be used as food additives if there were no MSG present. MSG reactions have been reported from soaps, shampoos, hair conditioners, and cosmetics, where MSG is hidden in ingredients with names that include the words "hydrolyzed," "amino acids," and/or "protein." Most sun block creams and insect repellents also contain MSG. Drinks, candy, and chewing gum are potential sources of hidden MSG and/or aspartame, neotame. and AminoSweet (the new name for aspartame). Aspartic acid, found in neotame, aspartame (NutraSweet), and AminoSweet, ordinarily causes MSG type reactions in MSG sensitive people. (It would appear that calling aspartame "AminoSweet" is industry's method of choice for hiding aspartame.) We have not seen Neotame used widely in the United States. Aspartame will be found in some medications, including children's medications. For questions about the ingredients in pharmaceuticals, check with your pharmacist and/or read the product inserts for the names of "other" or "inert" ingredients.

Binders and fillers for medications, nutrients, and supplements, both prescription and non-prescription, enteral feeding materials, and some fluids administered intravenously in hospitals, may contain MSG. According to the manufacturer, Varivax–Merck chicken pox vaccine (Varicella Virus Live), contains L-monosodium glutamate and hydrolyzed gelatin, both of which contain processed free glutamic acid (MSG) which causes brain lesions in young laboratory animals, and causes endocrine disturbances like OBESITY and REPRODUCTIVE disorders later in life. It would appear that most, if not all, live virus vaccines contain some ingredient(s) that contains MSG. Reactions to MSG are dose related, i.e., some people react to even very small amounts. MSG-induced reactions may occur immediately after ingestion or after as much as 48 hours. The time lapse between ingestion and reaction is typically the same each time for a particular individual who ingests an amount of MSG that exceeds his or her individual tolerance level. Remember: By food industry definition, all MSG is "naturally occurring." "Natural" doesn't mean "safe." "Natural" only means that the ingredient started out in nature, like arsenic and hydrochloric acid. ___________________________________________________________________________________

Our little guy's adventures

Just like the old saying "Time flies so fast" well I do believe that it does. I enjoyed watching our son grow up and enjoyed every minute of it doing different things with our family. Now he is 5 years old and started his kindergarten. His first day of school was a big day for all of us him being excited to ride on a school bus for the first time I had very mixed emotions. Grandma also came over to see him ride the school bus. Its so hard to believe how brave he was with a big smile on his face as he waved back when the school bus drove off. Just like that. Anyway to make sure he will get to the school (not that we don't trust the school bus driver) we followed the school bus up to the school. Entering the house as we came home the house seems so empty without him and I kept looking at the clock hoping that the clock turns as quickly as possible for him to come home. But everyday is a wonderful day to hear the new adventures he had in school. Our little boy had his own little wings to learn how to fly.









Watching and winning the bid

I found myself  on Ebay site wandering and watching bids  that people sell. Sitting in front  in front of the computer whenever I find time let alone shopping for Christmas presents for my four year old is fun. Its real easy to find things on there these days. The category helps a lot. My plan  to get our little buckaroo a snowmobile helmet that matched the color of our ski doo was rewarded when I won the bid. Bidding is very nerve wrecking  specially when too many bidders are watching. Lucky me because my husband taught me the real secret on how to win on ebay. Can't wait to see it arrive on the mail.

See accidents happen!

I just have to share this really quick funny incident happened a few minutes ago. My four year old had an early lunch with me. I was having my steamed rice, some vegetable and a sour pickle and coffee as a drink. Him having a bologna sandwich pickle and apple juice. As we are enjoying our lunch together I suddenly bit my tongue screaming with tears on my eyes and I instantly pounded my fist on the table. It hurts alright!...my four year old boy astonished by my sudden reaction looked at me with a very serious face and said "SEE ACCIDENTS HAPPEN.... What a smart remark....hahaha
