It has skim milk, is it ok?

No, Shirley, it is not okay. Skim milk almost always has msg added in some form or another.

thanks but how?

shirley, in the chapter on dairy products, there is a good explanation. It has to do with the addition of dry milk solids to normally thin, watery skim milk to may it thicker and richer tasting. But the dry milk itself has been so processed that the natural glutamate has been turned into free glutamate, the more harmful form.

How come skim milk doesnt label in the ingredients as dry milk solids and water?

That's why we're here-to help each other identify the hidden sources of MSG. If everything was labeled, our lives would be much easier.

Water isn't usually added to milk, just dry milk solids to "pump" up the thin milk that has been skimmed. By law, milk can be labeled just "milk, even if it is dry...same as in milk chocolate...it's usually added as dry milk...that's why I can eat dark chocolate vs. milk chocolate...but I try to go easy. That's hard when it's the huge bar of Trader Joe's dark chocolate with almonds from Belgium! My downfall since I discovered it this summer. Good thing we don't have one too close to us.

Is milk without ultra pastraside and fortified with vit. D ok?
This is serious. I went to the hfs and potato chips had vinegar in it. Rapazua chocolate had whole milk powder to it. I went to the supermarket to find no msg sour cream and fresh mozzerella. It has enzymes in it.

I seem to do fine with a little Organic Valley whole organic milk. It's ultra-pasteurized, but does not have the dry milk solids added...most whole milk does not, since it contains enough cream to make it tasty. It is hard to find any cheese that just has rennet. I think the Super Walmart brand of whole milk mozzarella is just rennet, and remember, the more mild a cheese is, the less time the enzymes have had a chance to create free glutamate.

So fortifide with vit.D is ok? It isnt ultra pasteurized.

Should be okay.
