Abstract: If $ f({x_1}, \ldots ,{x_n})$ is not central for R, then the additive group generated by all specializations of f in R contains a noncentral Lie ideal of R. This is used, among other things, to prove:

Theorem. Let R be a semiprime algebra over an infinite field, $ {f_1}, \ldots ,{f_t}$ polynomials in disjoint sets of variables all noncentral for R. Then, if R satisfies $ {S_t}[{f_1}, \ldots ,{f_t}]$, R must satisfy $ {S_t}[{x_1}, \ldots ,{x_t}]$.
