Is MSG something to avoid while taking Coumadin? I only think about it when dining at a Chinese Restaurant.
MSG (monosodium glutamate) is an ingredient that has no role in anyone's diet. It is used because the sodium activates salt taste buds and the glutamate activates the umami taste buds.
Generally speaking, Chinese restaurants are the most unhealthy that you can eat in. There's hidden salt, fat and often Vitamin K. Take a few minutes, plan a trip to the grocery and make your own fabulous Asian meal. (Note: Not all of these recipes will be safe for those on Coumadin (warfarin). Check the Special Diet Section of each recipe.)
