I just read that nutritional yeast is basically MSG. I simply don't understand.
Anyone have actual studies or research on this, that isn't paid for by the dairy or meat industry

yes, it has lots of free glutamates. that's why instead of listing "MSG", products will often list "yeast extract" or other "extracts." if you're concerned about excitotoxins and that whole theory, i would think that would also apply to nooch, although you may not react to it the same way as straight up MSG powder.
I read a great article one night about this, but I kept falling asleep. It said it depends on what the yeast is grown on. I figured I'd google the article again, but when I tried, I couldn't find it. I'd love this info as well. (I'm wanting to make nut cheeses and they all call for nutritional yeast.)
Created an instant family (7/89 and 5/91) in 1997. Made a baby boy 12/05 adopted a baby girl 8/08. Ask me about tandem adoptive nursing. Now living as gluten, dairy, cane sugar, and tomato free vegetarians. Homeschooling and loving it.
I worried about this for a while, and looked into it quite a bit. After hemming and hawing, here's what I decided: people who react to MSG, they *react* to it. If you have no reaction from nooch, it's probably nothing to worry about.
I eat less nooch than I used to, but I (and my son) still eat nooch. =)
