    Not quite following Ray here; he's on record to avoid aspartate and glutamate
    Soybeans fermented traditionnally are notorious for freeing glutamate and triggering headaches in msg sensible people.

    Yeah. Hence the concern. I don't experience anything negative from both soya and fish sauce though.

    I believe that's because there's a difference between soy beans and soy sauce because there isn't as much, if any of the original soy protein left in soy sauce.

    Dr. Lita Lee's website has a whole article on how estrogenic soy is; with the exception of soy sauce. So it seems there's quite a difference, assuming you don't eat several ounces of it at a time..

    I'm sure gluten free soy sauce is safer too.
