Hydrolyzed corn protein


Recommended Posts

Is hydrolyzed corn protein okay? From my understanding it’s MSG and MSG is okay. But it’s also derived from corn and I realize corn is not okay. 

I’ve read this and even the corn derived MSG sounds compatible. https://whole30.com/msg/

I’m on day 2 of my first Whole30 and am trying to figure out if I can have turkey at my in-laws next weekend. They buy one of those pre-seasoned birds. If I were making the turkey I’d buy fresh but I’m not lol. They did send me the ingredient list and hydrolyzed corn protein was the only questionable ingredient. 

Appreciate any help I can get as I’ve spent way too much time trying to figure this out.

If an item has MSG listed on the package, we don't expect you to figure out what the MSG was derived from.  However, if a corn product is listed on the ingredients then you know that it's corn and since corn is out for the program, the item would be out.
