Carol’s Facebook Quick Tips #23
MSG is a flavor enhancer found in many fat free and sugar free products. It effects our brain and makes want to eat more. The gov’t doesn’t require food manufacturers to list it in the ingredients if it is less than 79%. Manufacturers can claim there is no “MSG” in their product, meaning that there is no ingredient called ‘monosodium glutamate’. HOWEVER…there may be autolyzed yeast, hydrolyzed pea protein, carrageenan, sodium caseinate, enzymes, and other ingredients that contain or create processed free glutamic acid (MSG) during manufacturing. BEWARE! Eat whole foods!
