Hi all,

I have a glutamate sensitivity, breaking out into a rash about 24-48 hours after consuming (usually focused on the face, neck and chest). Anyway, I read that matcha green tea is high in l-theanine, and acts to block glutamate receptors in the body. Sounds great! Maybe it will help reduce the glutamate reaction if it l-theanine blocks the receptors. Anyway, I started having a teaspoon of matcha in my breakfast smoothie, and then within a couple of days I started getting all rashy again. I hadn't made any other dietary changes, so I can only suspect the matcha. Just wondered if anyone else had experienced anything similar?

Thanks.

No additives that I'm aware of - ingredients list is just green tea. It's good quality Japanese tencha matcha, so I would be surprised if there were any undisclosed additives.

After the incident with the nuclear plant I am skeptical about anything from Japan.
