This additive is salty and savory just like MSG. It is found in many of the same foods as MSG. The chemical name is Ribonucleotide, and often the reaction people get from eating it is an extremely itchy, irritable rash which we call the ‘Ribo Rash.’
If you think seaweed crackers are healthy you are wrong!!
If you think flavored tofu is healthy you are wrong!!
We are being poisoned slowly by these additives. People from all over the world are being affect by intolerances and allergies to food additives more than ever before. It is so important to eat a diet that is natural, whole and pure.
This additive, can be ANY of the following 3 names or numbers on a food label and they are universal, i.e. the same in every country in the world:
Ribonucleotide – #635 – E635
Disodium Guanylate – #627 – E627
Disodium Inosinate – #631 – E631
It is often used in combination with MSG, monosodium glutamate or #621.
Look for 635, 627 and 631 in tasty, salty processed foods such as:
Instant noodles, flavoured potato chips, Doritos, Pringles
Flavored (eg BBQ, chicken) biscuits and rice crackers
Packet or canned soups or stocks and stock cubes
Meat pies, hot dogs, sausage rolls
Some instant mashed potato
Seasoning in the stuffing of supermarket fresh chickens
Flavouring salt added to rotisseried chickens
Flavour added to frozen turkey
Pre-prepared or instant sauces, gravies and meals
Salad dressing, flavored tuna
Devondale Light with Calcium
Pasta meals including macaroni cheese
Marinated meat from your butcher
Sausages from your supermarket or butcher
Wasabi covered peas and most wasabi sauces
Some fast foods such as chicken, french fries, batter for fish, Burger King’s veggie burger, everything from KFC (it’s in their chicken salt)
Check even fresh chicken labels closely as there have been some recent reports
Pre-packaged curry sauces
Flavored tofu products (tofu hot dogs, tofu burgers, etc)
Green hot sauces used in Middle Eastern dishes (usually served with falafel/hummus)
Check all labels for soy sauces, oyster sauces, jars of curry and Asian sauces
Some salsas – check labels
I still have to watch labels and always be aware of what I am eating.
If you think you are having a reaction to ribonucleotides or you want to ask me specific questions about my rash, please do not hesitate to contact me.
