After I decided I must be MSG sensitive, I did an elimination diet. Got down to mashed potatoes and nothing else. Then started adding other foods, One at a time. Surprise - the frozen veggies did me in every time. so I went to fresh ones. I've been symptom free for about 3 weeks. Still being careful and noting what I have eaten in case of any adverse reaction.

Good job, Anonymous. Yes, many frozen vegetables are treated with MSG and sulfites. I have avoided them for years.

Are frozen organic vegetables treated with MSG and sulfites also?

Not if they are just the plain vegetable without flavorings or sauces added to them. It has to be labeled and if the name of the vegetable is the only listing, you should be fine. The only questionable thing would be if they were treated with AuxiGro while growing, such as some carrots.

I'm pretty new to the whole avoiding MSG world... does the same go for frozen fruit? The only ingredient listed is 'raspberries'... or a mix of fruit if it's a mixed bag. I bought them to make smoothies since I'm finding it hard to find things to eat at the moment!
Deb - I just ordered your book last night so I'm very much looking forward to learning more! Thank you for this website - it's helping so much!

Hi Kara. If it says just raspberries it should be just that as with the frozen veggies. One thing i would say is that i have more problems with fruits that arent peeled. My little one cant tolerate USA raspberries (im in Ireland) but can tolerate local grown ones. Im not sure why. I think (and this is a guess) that they are sprayed prior to transport with something to keep them fresh or possibly it could be a sulfite reaction as she has with grapes???????

Yes, it's always best to buy the foods in your area in season and freeze some for later. Many foods being shipped long distances are sprayed or fumigated unless organic. I do okay with the Kirtland brand of frozen strawberries (Costco). I just found some frozen organic raspberries and strawberries at our Grocery Outlet...from the states. Good prices, too. I'm about out of last year's from our freezer! Kara, sometimes we just have to experiment with some frozen produce, sorry to say. Labeling is so poor nowadays. You can also call the food producers and pick their brains about additives and preservatives.

We seem to do well with frozen fruit, but we also freeze our own and that works well too. Especially bananas -- every time a banana starts getting spotted, I leave it on the counter until it is almost fully black. Then I peel and dump it, gross as it seems, into a freezer baggie. One overripe banana sweetens a smoothie batch nicely without any added sweetener.

thanks for the banana tip! That will come in handy in the summer time when the kids want smoothies again.

I do well with Great Value frozen blueberries (blueberries is the only ingredient on the label).
The rest of our frozen fruit comes from our yard so I don't have any other recommendations. We have been using the Great value blueberries for a few years without any reactions.
