Default Food Grade versus Brewing Grade Malt Extract

The food grade LME is much much cheaper than the brewing grade LME. I know that a beer made with foof grade LME probably won't taste as good as a beer made with brewing grade LME, but will the former be drinkable? Thanks.

Primary: Pilsner
Secondary: Empty
Keg 1: Dunkelweizen
Keg 2: Empty

I was just flicking through a few episodes of Basic Home Brew Radio.

It explained the difference.
