Many prepared foods have some level of preservatives & additives in them.  I know that we all should avoid them on general principle, but that is not always possible.   I see that MSG is listed on the website as a condiment (funny I thought), but not the typical additives like ascorbic acid, citric acid, sodium benzoate, potassium sorbate, ect.  Is there a listing anywhere that makes blood type recomendations?

Some of those are derived from corn so they would be considered corn avoids.

Are you looking to see which additives are OK for you to eat?

I can see how MSG would be considered a condiment.  After all, you can buy it powdered in a little container so you can just sprinkle it on your food.  I mean...one can sprinkle it on one's food if one wanted to.

I know Big Agra finds a way to stash corn into almost everything & I know that high frutcose corn sryup is probably up there with cigarettes as a national health hazard, but the food value table says corn is a "neutral" for us A secretors.

A Secretor is the only type, and then only when you haven't seen a problem due to it.  My DD has noticed that too much Corn Syrup disturbs her gut bacterial balance, so it is still a concern for some A Secretors.

While a neutral rated food should not do harm, it won't provide benefit except to allow more variety in the diet, so shouldn't be a major part of the diet...

Does anyone know if silicon dioxide is considered an additive and is it safe to consume? I found this on the ingredient list of a jar of organic spices from the Simply Organics brand. It's indicated as anti-caking agent. When I googled it it seems to be a totally harmless mineral found in nature. Yet silicon dioxide is used for making glass, etc... makes me wonder

Silicon dioxide is essentially food-grade sand.  As far as I know, it is unrated in BTD or GTD, so treat it as Neutral until further notice...

I hope your body doesn't get hot enough to make glass out of it!

My kids (as toddlers) have eaten sand before with no longterm ill effects.  I probably did the same when I was a toddler. It's gritty going down, and theoretically can be gritty on the way out if you eat too much (but they never did.) It's pretty harmless. It doesn't provide any calories or nutrients, isn't absorbed through the gut (so it won't have any lectin activity).

The food grade silicone dioxide is a lot cleaner than the stuff on the beach (no dead bugs, remnants of goose poop, etc mixed in.)

Good to know that, ruthiegirl! I probably ate dirt or sand when I was a toddler, too

It goes further than that, I think. In some Oriental food stores you can buy MSG in glass jars containing about a pint (500 ml.) of fine ground powder. Seems that more than sprinkling is going on here I would say.

When I go to work out I usually put a stick of Extra Polar Ice gum in my mouth and chew to keep my mouth from drying out.  Lately I have noticed I get a concentration of phlegm in my throat while chewing.  Upon reviewing the ingredients in the gum I find aspartame.  This we all know is an "avoid" across the board of BTD/GTD.  My belief is I now notice the side effect because I now avoid wheat/gluten in my eating protocol.  For what it is worth here is a link about symptoms on aspartame.
