Is Monosodium Glutamate (MSG) naturally occurring in your food?
No votes yet

Monosodium Glutamate (MSG), the commercial flavor enhancer, is commonly used in processed foods, including canned vegetables, canned soups, sauces, dressings, and broths.


While some food products may not contain added MSG, they may contain other glutamates that naturally occur in many foods.


If you suspect you are one of the small number of people who are hypersensitive to glutamates, look for these glutamate-containing ingredients on labels: any type of hydrolyzed protein, autolyzed yeast protein, yeast extract, yeast nutrient, natural flavor or flavoring, whey protein concentrate, and liquid aminos.
