It depends on how sensitive you are to tomatoes. Even a bite of a raw tomato can cause problems for a sensitive person. Also, the more ripe, the more glutamates.

Would canned tomatoes have more glutamates since it has been cooked?

Here is partial answer: Most canned tomatoes contain citric acid (look at the ingredients).
Citric acid is made from corn and other stuff and many NoMSGers have reported problems from it. Corn contains a substantial amount of natural glutamate. The more it is processed with the application of heat, water, and/or chemicals, the more the bound glutamate is broken down into free glutamate. Do keyword search for more info on citric acid.
