With a glutamate intolerance (intolerance = intolerance), too  Chinese restaurant syndrome causes digestive problems such as abdominal pain (abdominal discomfort), flatulence & or diarrhea.
Food naturally contains glutamates, which industry relies on
however, more and more "flavor enhancers" are added to foods, which can lead to or promote the development of glutamate intolerance.
Sources of glutamate are called flavors or foods
not classified as a food additive and therefore do not receive an E number.
Glutamate is used as a food additive, especially in Asian cuisine and in almost all finished or semi-finished products in the food industry.

Glutamate metabolism:

Humans need glutamate as a messenger substance (neurotransmitter) for the transmission of information in the brain. Glutamate is bound to proteins in many foods and is found unbound as free glutamate.

Only the free glutamate has a flavor enhancing effect.

The food industry has been using the umami effect (= is the Japanese word for delicious and spicy aroma) for over 40 years. This is because the neurotransmitter can intensify the inherent taste of foods such as herbs, vegetables and meat, which is lost during heating or freezing, in the brain.

Glutamate is obtained from starchy plant products through fermentation.


Glutamate is considered harmless

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), glutamate has no harmful effects on the organism.

The Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR) also has "no concerns about the occasional use of small amounts of glutamate in the preparation of meals". Due to the scientifically established safety, there is no upper limit for the daily dose of glutamate . However, foods to which glutamate has been added as a flavor enhancer must be labeled accordingly.


Sodium glutamate is banned in Germany as an additive in baby food.

For example, eating foods rich in glutamate can increase the risk of obesity due to intense taste (nibbles, etc.) - risk of addiction.

Already 10 to 20 minutes after ingestion of the substances considered to be the trigger, various symptoms such as dry mouth, tingling, numbness in the oral cavity, itching in the throat, reddened skin areas (e.g. cheeks) with sensation of heat, palpitations, (temples) headache, stiffness of the facial muscles, Neck stiffness, body aches and nausea. Abdominal complaints such as abdominal pain, diarrhea and flatulence are also possible.

Why is nutritional therapy important?

Nutritional therapy supports you in reducing your symptoms and thereby positively influencing your health. An elimination diet followed by a low-glutamate diet under the supervision of a certified nutritionist can lead to your success.

The aim is to supply all of the fatty acids, micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) that are important to you, energy and protein in the measure that your body is optimally supplied with. For this purpose, foods that promote inflammation are specifically avoided and plenty of anti-inflammatory foods are consumed. Weight reduction is recommended if you are overweight / obese. An anti-inflammatory diet can improve the state of health.

Classification of your weight - definition and classification of weight in relation to height.

Special percentile curves apply to children and adolescents; the BMI cannot simply be used here.

BMI and interpretation: BMI: body mass index. Formula: Body weight in kg : (body height in m) 2

Underweight: <18.5

Normal weight: 18.5 - 24.9

Overweight = pre-obesity: 25-29.9

Obesity grade I: 30 - 34.9

Obesity grade II: 35-39.9

Obesity grade III:> 40 = per magna
