I'm not sure that I understand your question. MSG is toxic as it is. It is created by heat or decomposition.

Are you asking this question in regards to stories about aspartame being exposed to heat and becoming even more toxic. I suppose the same could be true of MSG, but avoid the stuff like the plague and never thought about this.

Anonymous,

If you havent' already, check out the link "hidden names for MSG" (below). It will give you an idea which *ingredients* are being put in our food that contain MSG. A great reference for people just learning about this.

Maria, some companies may put some MSG in their water, but they would have to label it as such. But if it is an additive such as dextrose, which contains glutamate, the harmful component of MSG, the average person, may not be aware that the glutamate present could cause a reaction. Most waters contain preservatives such as sulfites, phosphates, or benzoates, which can cause reactions for many of us. Sulfites do not have to be labeled if the amount is under 10 parts per million. But there are some beverages that must have more than that amount and are unlabeled. The FDA has little time to keep checking most companies. I have to avoid such products for that reason. It's best to call the company if you have any questions concerning additives. As for vitamins, check the list of hidden sources of glutamate on our site at www.msgmyth.com or at www.msgtruth.org, or www.truthinlabeling.org. Make a copy and compare the ingredients in any vitamins with the list. Some common culprits that contain glutamate in vitamins are gelatin, cornstarch, yeast extracts, dextrose, lactic acid, and others.
I'm not sure about magnesium stearate. I think it's a by product of beef fat, but I am not certain. You might try doing a search on that substance and let us know what you learn.
