Monosodium Glutamate, aka MSG, is a substance commonly found in packaged foods. Some other common names or hiding places for MSG include: calcium caseinate, sodium caseinate, textured protien, natural flavorings, yeast food, autolyzed yeast, hydrolyzed protein, hyrdrolyzed vegtable protein, yeast extract, hydrolyzed yeast, natural chicken/turkey flavoring, and other flavorings, modified food starch, carrageenan, seasonings, spice, bouillon/broth/stock, malted barley flour, malt extract, corn starch, corn syrup, dextrose, soy, wheat, or whey protein, soy, fish or bean.
Why might you want to reconsider products containing MSG? MSG is a neurotoxin. It is considered a neurotoxin because it will destroy your brain and nervous system. If that is not enough MSG also causes obesity, heart problems, migraines, asthma, birth defects ( hormonal and intellectual), increases risk of allergies, autism, ADD, dyslexia, schizophrenia, seizures, paranoia, depression, cerebral palsy, Alzheimers, ALS, Parkinsons, Huntingtons, MS, sleeping disorders, swollen tongue, joint pain, racing heart, vertigo, skin disorders, gastrointestinal disorders, and Fibromyalgia.
WOW! Looks like MSG might be something we may want to avoid. Please check your labels. If your not sure just call the company and ask questions. Remember you are what you eat! You have a right to know what that may be.
