I am new here and I am still trying to get my head around which foods are good and bad.

I am confused by wheat and gluten. I read somewhere that it was essential to avoid all gluten containing foods (wheat, barley rye) but I have seen lots of post on here by people that are eating wheat. Is wheat good or bad with glutamate?? Is there types of wheat that are okay?

The main thing is to do the test diet and leave out wheat for the duration of the test. Once you have determined if food additives are truly a problem for you, you can add in wheat bread made with safe ingredients and see if you can tolerate it. In the beginning I couldn't tolerate any foods that were high in glutamates but as I healed, I was able to add them back in - as long as I made them carefully using the safest ingredients. You will need to listen to your body and see if wheat works for you. We are a group of different people with differing levels of reactions to the same additives in general. Some of us have very restrictive diets because of additional food allergies or intolerances and some people don't have to be so careful and exacting. We all support each other no matter how our individual dietary needs differ,

Thanks Kristy, You are very helpful, I will stay away from wheat for now.

Are oats generally well tolerated (gluten free ones) as a porridge or should I stay away from then for a few weeks too?

I think the same applies to oats or any grain with high protein levels for the duration of the test diet. As always, add in cautiously once you are symptom-free.
