Talking with the Experts: Katherine Reid, PhD

Talking with the Experts: Katherine Reid, PhD

Free glutamate is a molecule that comes from proteins in our food, and it can be elevated when proteins are processed. Why is that a problem? And why should I care? Our friend and admired scientist, Dr. Katherine Reid sat down with us to explain the science.

Katherine Reid is a biochemist based in Silicon Valley, and she is doingamazingresearch about the relationships between free glutamate, MSG, and our food. She discovered that removing excess free glutamate from her daughter’s diet completely eliminated her autistic symptoms. While tinkering with her daughter’s diet, she learned that excess free glutamate can be associated with all kinds of other health issues — not just autism.

Problematic Legumes, Soy & Peanuts

Soy products are problematic for multiple reasons. They’re allergenic, they’re high in antinutrient defensive compounds, and they’re frequently genetically modified. We try to stay away from soy in our kitchen. But soy products are everywhere, and it can be challenging to phase them out. 

Seasoning with Salt

Seasoning with Salt

Salt is one of the most important ingredients in any kitchen. It adds its own flavor while accentuating the flavors of the foods it touches. Since salt is so crucial to all aspects of cooking, we take care in sourcing the best salt that we can.

Choosing Your Fuel

Choosing Your Fuel

One of our goals at Mission: Heirloom is to provide a platform for dietary exploration. Each of us has our own individual biochemistry and physiology—therefore we each have our own individual dietary needs. The reason why we keep our food free of grains, gluten, soy, and environmental toxins is to make sure that all of our food is adaptable to different dietary requirements.
