When I eat it by itself....with no other foods...yes I react to the glutamates. Also I notice I can't "hide" it in gluten-free dishes like rice or veggies. It goes better in my spelt Baking Powder Drop Biscuits. But I usually can't have more than one serving of Yeast per day or else I can get a migrane, or cleanse-out-of-control boomerang effect....and it starts exuding from the tissues around my lips for the next 12 hours.....as the body gets rid of it..... (pass the napkins, please...)

I get a migraine from red wine.. especially California wine. I can only tolerate Italian or French Pinot Noir. My son bought me a bottle of Cavit Cabernet Sovengion and it triggered a migraine..I like the taste better but it doesn't like me...Oh and I can have Port. My favorite is Sandman..Portugese.. It's very good..
After eating Nutritional Yeast daily for many months, sprinkled on a rice cake with almond butter, I have completely stopped eating it.
I've had a few mysterious symptoms for many months and finally realized that they started a few weeks after I started eating the NY.
I had itching in my mid-back, with no rash, bumps or anything else visible. The sole of my right foot had a strange nerve sensation, sort of a drilling feeling. The top of my left foot and up my left shin felt a pins & needles sensation.
All of these came and went periodically throughout the day and didn't seem to be connected to anything else I was doing.
I haven't eaten the yeast in a couple of weeks and all 3 of those things are gone! I miss eating it because I love the taste, but it seemed to be doing something unhealthy to my nerve endings.
