Got MSG? Foodstorage, Fast food, even health food
You can't really ask if something "has MSG" in it these days. It just makes a big confusing mess. People don't know that its in there, because it has so many hidden names!
Check out name brand food storage companies: they say they don't have MSG in them, but read the label, and they do.
Mountain House Freeze Dried Food
Healthy Harvest I couldn't find the ingredients listing for this so (?)
These don't claim "No MSG," but they do have it.
21st Century Food Storage
I also found this comment.
"Many Freeze Dried foods have MSG of some sort in them, which makes me sick. I have to be very careful about the ingredients… MSG, hydrolyzed vegetable protein, hydrolyzed plant protein, autolyzed plant protein, calcium caseinate, textured protein (any type of TVP), yeast extract, autolyzed yeast, sodium caseinate, vegetable protein extract, glutamic acid, etc. All have MSG in them, up to 78%. So even if an ingredient list says no MSG, or doesn’t have “MSG” specifically in it, doesn’t mean it doesn’t have it in. And, MSG is what scientists use to inject in lab rats when they want to decrease their IQ — something that we do NOT want happening to us, right? (though the food companies do, since most all processed food contains MSG). If I ever have to rely on my food storage, I don’t want to worry about getting sick from it, or getting stupid from it. We will have enough to worry about as it is." -Rebecca
