I'm not one of those who will completely avoid MSG but I want to know what foods contain it. I definitely don't want it in my body.

Here are things in processed foods that contain MSG:

Anything “protein”

Anything “protein fortified”

Soy sauce

Anything “enzyme modified”

Anything containing “enzymes”

Anything “fermented”

Anything containing “protease”

Vetsin

Ajinomoto

Names of ingredients that often contain or produce processed free glutamic acid during processing:



Carrageenan (E 407)

Bouillon and broth

Stock

Any “flavors” or “flavoring”

MSG is in pretty much everything that is processed. And yes, it does come in a guise of other names. 'Natural Flavoring' is my favorite.

I don't think a small amount of it will really bother anyone unless they are specifically sensitive to it. As long as the majority of your diet is from whole unprocessed foods I think it is fairly safe.

Yeah, "natural flavoring."

So, nice of them.

Yes, I try to avoid any processed foods but I have difficulty doing it in the US.

I don't know where you are in the U.S. but there is plenty of fresh food here. Go into a grocery store and hit the outer aisles. Cook. Drink water.
Plus MSG is not bad for you so I don't see the need to worry about it. Just don't eat a lot of processed foods.

It exists as a natural flavoring in many foods as Suzy's article points out. The one you thanked her for.

Pac NW.

I don't eat much processed foods.

But there level of MSG in the labels that are misleadingly labelled is what is wrong, IMO.

Are you sensitive to it? If you are not its hardly worth worrying about.
