Yeast Extract Organic
Yeast Extract is an often used synonym for Monosodium Glutimate (MSG). This is one example of how organic foods are NOT free of MSG. Although the culture may have come from organic origins, this is still an ingredient with \"hidden\" MSG. Monosodium Glutamate Monosodium Glutamate (MSG) is used in foods as a flavor enhancer while not providing their own separate flavor. Monosodium Glutamate (MSG) is considered an excitotoxin, a substance that overstimulates neurotransmitters in the body. The exitotoxic process plays a major role in many life-threatening maladies: strokes, brain injury, brain tumors, degenerative brain diseases (Alzheimer\\\'s, Parkinson\\\'s and Lou Gehrig\\\'s disease,) meningitis, neurological Lyme disease, encephalitis, schizophrenia, depression, bipolar disorder, addiction behaviors, multiple sclerosis and there is growing evidence that excitotoxins play a central role in autism.
