Foods You Didn't Know Contained MSG

5 Foods You Didn't Know Contained MSG


MSG, monosodium glutamate or E621, is a chemical that is used for flavor enhancements in a variety of foods. While the FDA classifies MSG as a food that is generally safe for consumption, many people experience adverse reactions to MSG, including headaches, sweating, facial tightness, heart palpitations, chest pain and nausea. Even in foods that are labeled “No MSG added” and/or “MSG Free,” glutamate has been added, in hopes of “tricking” the consumer.

While most people are aware that a lot of Chinese food is prepared with MSG, there are many more foods that contain it. There are thousands of products that contain MSG. For optimal health, familiarize yourself with the list below, which contains food products that you might not have known to contain MSG.

1. Salad Items

While the vast majority of people are under the impression that a salad is a healthy meal option, MSG is commonly added to foods that are found in salads. The most common culprits of hidden MSG in a salad include:

Bacon bits
Salad dressings
Deli meats
Deli cheese
Parmesan cheese

2. Canned Goods and Prepackaged Foods

Although there are many canned foods and prepackaged goods that are recognized as having added MSG, some products have been flying under the radar for quite some, only catching the attention of researchers and nutritionists recently. A variety of canned goods have added MSG, including:

Canned meats (tuna, chicken, etc.)
Clam chowder
Soups (even the forms that claim to not have MSG)
Dip mixes

3. Fresh Fruits and Vegetables

Some people may expect MSG to be found in any type of processed food, but would you expect MSG to be found in fresh fruits and vegetables? If you’re like most people, this will come as a surprise. The fact of the matter is that free glutamic acid, or MSG, is being sprayed directly onto fruits and vegetables as they are growing. The EPA has approved the use of MSG as a treatment method for crop growers.

4. Dairy Items

Most people would consider fat-free or reduced-fat milk a safe option. What about yogurt? The following dairy products are likely to contain MSG:

Ultra Pasteurized Products
Powdered Milk
Cottage Cheese
Fat-free Milk
Reduced Fat Milk
Ice Cream

5. Baby Formulas and Baby Foods

Baby formula and baby foods might come as quite a shock here, and many people do not realize that baby products contain MSG. Nearly all powdered infant formulas contain processed milk and or/soy proteins, which are broken down into MSG during the manufacturing process.

Hidden Names Being Used for MSG

Food manufacturers have gotten wise as the general population continues to gain knowledge regarding unhealthy additives commonly found in the foods we purchase. Below you will find a list of common names that food manufacturers will put on their labels, to avoid actually saying that the product contains MSG. If you see one of the following names, you can be assured that the product contains MSG:

Yeast Extract
Calcium Caseinate
Sodium Caseinate
Autolyzed Plant Protein
Glutamic Acid
Hydrolized Vegetable Protein
Hydrolized Plant Protein

Obama pilgrims are on a journey to destruction.

A pilgrim (from the Latin peregrinus) is a traveler (literally one who has come from afar) who is on a journey. Obama pilgrims are on a journey to destruction.

(Obama Plantation "pilgrims" lack the appropriate incentive structure just like the Plymouth Plantation pilgrims. Bad economic incentives caused the pilgrims’ shortages.

Many Pilgrims faked illness or stole instead of working in the fields to produce food. William Bradford later wrote that the colony was filled with "corruption," and with "confusion and discontent." He stated that the crops were so small because “much was stolen both by night and day, before it became scarce eatable."

Obama "pilgrims" fake illness, steal from the government instead of working or can't find work because of obama communist policies of redistributing the wealth.

The plymouth pilgrim colony was filled with "corruption," and with "confusion and discontent.

Today the obama plantation "pilgrim" colony known as America is filled with corruption because of obama and his fellow comrads. Today America is filled with confusion via obama care/irs/epa and other gov regulations. Today America is also filled with discontent as were the original pilgrims.

William Bradford finally decided to change course by implementing a new economic system in 1623. The move away from collectivism saved the Pilgrims.

Obama will not change course and move away from his collectivism. He will continue to act like the dictator he is. More will be less. He will continue to turn America into a failed "colony".) Happy Thanksgiving Story Reports
Thanksgiving to obama means taking your money/wealth/health benefits and giving it to other "pilgrims" that rely of the government for everything and getting a thanks the next election.

Meniere's disease avoid MSG etc

Menieres Disease, Symptoms: What causes Meniere's disease?
Menieres Disease Avoid foods that contain MSG
What is the treatment for Meniere's disease?

The mainstay of treatment is directed towards attempts to decrease the fluid pressure in the inner ear. This is done by aggressive salt-restriction, sometimes in combination with a diuretic ("water pill"). A diuretic alone will not overcome the inner ear's ability to retain salt, so this medication should be reserved for patients in whom salt-restriction alone is insufficient. It is important not to decrease salt intake too much, as sodium is an essential mineral for the body to function. However, in practice this is not too much of a concern since most people find any sodium restriction to be a greater challenge than over-restriction. The goal is to reduce your daily sodium intake to 1500-2000 milligrams. This involves more than not sprinkling salt on your food. It requires diligence in precisely measuring your sodium intake from all sources by inspecting package labels and kitchen habits. Restaurant eating must usually be limited since it is difficult to accurately quantify sodium intake in that setting, and the foods are typically highly salted.

Some guidelines for maintaining a low-salt diet are as follows:

Do not add salt to food or cooking. If this is too difficult at first, try halving the amount of salt you add to recipes and at the table. If you slowly work your way down it will be much easier. Also, potassium containing salt substitutes are okay, and may be used if desired.

Restrict salt (sodium) intake to between 1500 milligrams (mg) to 2000 mg daily
Avoid high-salt (sodium) foods
Drink 6-8 glasses of fresh (unsoftened) water per day

Menieres Disease, Symptoms: What causes Meniere's disease?

Surgery for Meniere's disease

When medical therapy fails to control the vertigo associated with Meniere's disease, surgical intervention should be considered. Surgical options should be divided into those that preserve residual hearing in the affected ear, and those that destroy it. The latter are typically more reliable in their ability to control vertigo, but should only be undertaken if the residual hearing is minimal or not useful, and if the other ear has useful hearing and is not expected to become more severely affected.

There are many other considerations that go into choosing what type of procedure is best for each person. Some of the more commonly performed procedures are: chemical perfusion of the inner ear ("Gentamicin injection;" this can be performed in the office and is easily repeated if need be), endolymphatic sac surgery, vestibular nerve section and transmastoid labyrinthectomy. The pros and cons of each of these procedures should be discussed in detail with the physician, who will perform the treatment so as to choose the option that is best for each individual.

40 different ingredients contain the chemical in monosodium glutamate MSG

Hidden sources of MSG you need to know. Truth In Labeling ORG
(There is a reason KFC chicken tastes so good. Its because it is marinated in the poison MSG to TRICK your brain into thinking its finger licking good.) Story Reports

KFC list of chicken that contains MSG
40 different ingredients contain the chemical in monosodium glutamate MSG
Check the labels on every product you buy for the ingredients that contain MSG!!!!
Names of ingredients that contain processed free glutamic acid (MSG)1

Everyone knows that some people react to the food ingredient monosodium glutamate. What many don’t know, is that more than 40 different ingredients contain the chemical in monosodium glutamate (processed free glutamic acid) that causes these reactions. The following list has been compiled over the last 20 years from consumer reports and information provided by manufacturers and food technologists.

Names of ingredients that always contain processed free glutamic acid:

Glutamic acid (E 620)2
Glutamate (E 620)

Monosodium glutamate (E 621)

Monopotassium glutamate (E 622)

Calcium glutamate (E 623)

Monoammonium glutamate (E 624)

Magnesium glutamate (E 625)

Natrium glutamate

Anything “hydrolyzed”

Any “hydrolyzed protein”

Calcium caseinate, Sodium caseinate

Yeast extract, Torula yeast

Yeast food, Yeast nutrient

Autolyzed yeast


Textured protein

Whey protein

Whey protein concentrate

Whey protein isolate

Soy protein

Soy protein concentrate

Soy protein isolate

Anything “protein”

Anything “protein fortified”

Soy sauce

Soy sauce extract


Anything “enzyme modified”

Anything containing “enzymes”

Anything “fermented”




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

Carrageenan (E 407)

Bouillon and broth


Any “flavors” or “flavoring”


Citric acid, Citrate (E 330)

Anything “ultra-pasteurized”

Barley malt

Pectin (E 440)

Malt extract


(1) Glutamic acid found in unadulterated protein does not cause adverse reactions. To cause adverse reactions, the glutamic acid must have been processed/manufactured or come from protein that has been fermented.

(2) E numbers are use in Europe in place of food additive names.

The following are ingredients suspected of containing or creating sufficient processed free glutamic acid to serve as MSG-reaction triggers in HIGHLY SENSITIVE people:

Corn starch

Corn syrup

Modified food starch

Lipolyzed butter fat


Rice syrup

Brown rice syrup

Milk powder

Reduced fat milk (skim; 1%; 2%)

most things “low fat” or “no fat”

anything “enriched”

anything “vitamin enriched”

anything “pasteurized”



Balsamic vinegar

Certain amino acid chelates (Citrate, aspartate, and glutamate are used as chelating agents with mineral supplements.)

The following work synergistically with MSG to enhance flavor. If they are present for flavoring, so is MSG.

Disodium 5’-guanylate (E 627) Disodium 5’-inosinate (E-631) Disodium 5'-ribonucleotides (E 635)


Low fat and no fat milk products often contain milk solids that contain MSG and many dairy products contain carrageenan, guar gum, and/or locust bean gum. Low fat and no fat ice cream and cheese may not be as obvious as yogurt, milk, cream, cream cheese, cottage cheese, etc., but they are not exceptions.

Protein powders contain glutamic acid, which, invariably, will be processed free glutamic acid (MSG). Individual amino acids are not always listed on labels of protein powders. If you see the word “protein” in an ingredient label, the product contains MSG.

At present there is an FDA requirement to include the protein source when listing hydrolyzed protein products on labels of processed foods. Examples are hydrolyzed soy protein, hydrolyzed wheat protein, hydrolyzed pea protein, hydrolyzed whey protein, hydrolyzed, corn protein. If a tomato, for example, were whole, it would be identified as a tomato. Calling an ingredient tomato protein indicates that the tomato has been hydrolyzed, at least in part, and that processed free glutamic acid (MSG) is present.

Disodium guanylate and disodium inosinate are relatively expensive food additives that work synergistically with inexpensive MSG. Their use suggests that the product has MSG in it. They would probably not be used as food additives if there were no MSG present.

MSG reactions have been reported from soaps, shampoos, hair conditioners, and cosmetics, where MSG is hidden in ingredients with names that include the words "hydrolyzed," "amino acids," and/or "protein." Most sun block creams and insect repellents also contain MSG.

Drinks, candy, and chewing gum are potential sources of hidden MSG and/or aspartame, neotame. and AminoSweet (the new name for aspartame). Aspartic acid, found in neotame, aspartame (NutraSweet), and AminoSweet, ordinarily causes MSG type reactions in MSG sensitive people. (It would appear that calling aspartame "AminoSweet" is industry's method of choice for hiding aspartame.) We have not seen Neotame used widely in the United States.

Aspartame will be found in some medications, including children's medications. For questions about the ingredients in pharmaceuticals, check with your pharmacist and/or read the product inserts for the names of “other” or “inert” ingredients.

Binders and fillers for medications, nutrients, and supplements, both prescription and non-prescription, enteral feeding materials, and some fluids administered intravenously in hospitals, may contain MSG.

(Even if you are very careful and read labels on foods etc when you go to the "doctor" to get meds or the hospital it seems the government and corporations are hell bent on making sure you get a good dose of MSG one way or another!!! What a world.) Story Reports

According to the manufacturer, Varivax–Merck chicken pox vaccine (Varicella Virus Live), contains L-monosodium glutamate and hydrolyzed gelatin, both of which contain processed free glutamic acid (MSG) which causes brain lesions in young laboratory animals, and causes endocrine disturbances like OBESITY and REPRODUCTIVE disorders later in life. It would appear that most, if not all, live virus vaccines contain some ingredient(s) that contains MSG.

Reactions to MSG are dose related, i.e., some people react to even very small amounts. MSG-induced reactions may occur immediately after ingestion or after as much as 48 hours. The time lapse between ingestion and reaction is typically the same each time for a particular individual who ingests an amount of MSG that exceeds his or her individual tolerance level.

Remember: By food industry definition, all MSG is "naturally occurring." "Natural" doesn't mean "safe." "Natural" only means that the ingredient started out in nature, like arsenic and hydrochloric acid.

Aspartame: By Far the Most Dangerous Substance Added to Most Foods Today
Aspartame: By Far the Most Dangerous Substance Added to Most Foods Today
Dr. Mercola
What Is Aspartame Made Of?
Aspartic Acid (40 percent of Aspartame)

Dr. Russell L. Blaylock, a professor of neurosurgery at the Medical University of Mississippi, recently published a book thoroughly detailing the damage that is caused by the ingestion of excessive aspartic acid from aspartame. Blaylock makes use of almost 500 scientific references to show how excess free excitatory amino acids such as aspartic acid and glutamic acid (about 99 percent of monosodium glutamate or MSG is glutamic acid) in our food supply are causing serious chronic neurological disorders and a myriad of other acute symptoms.

How Aspartate (and Glutamate) Cause Damage

Aspartate and glutamate act as neurotransmitters in the brain by facilitating the transmission of information from neuron to neuron. Too much aspartate or glutamate in the brain kills certain neurons by allowing the influx of too much calcium into the cells. This influx triggers excessive amounts of free radicals, which kill the cells. The neural cell damage that can be caused by excessive aspartate and glutamate is why they are referred to as "excitotoxins." They "excite" or stimulate the neural cells to death.

Aspartic acid is an amino acid. Taken in its free form (unbound to proteins), it significantly raises the blood plasma level of aspartate and glutamate. The excess aspartate and glutamate in the blood plasma shortly after ingesting aspartame or products with free glutamic acid (glutamate precursor) leads to a high level of those neurotransmitters in certain areas of the brain.

The blood brain barrier (BBB), which normally protects the brain from excess glutamate and aspartate as well as toxins, 1) is not fully developed during childhood, 2) does not fully protect all areas of the brain, 3) is damaged by numerous chronic and acute conditions, and 4) allows seepage of excess glutamate and aspartate into the brain even when intact.

The excess glutamate and aspartate slowly begin to destroy neurons. The large majority (75 percent or more) of neural cells in a particular area of the brain are killed before any clinical symptoms of a chronic illness are noticed. A few of the many chronic illnesses that have been shown to be contributed to by long-term exposure to excitatory amino acid damage include:

Multiple sclerosis (MS)
Parkinson's disease
Memory loss
Hormonal problems
Brain lesions
Alzheimer's disease
Neuroendocrine disorders

Aspartic acid from aspartame has the same deleterious effects on the body as glutamic acid (MSG).

Methanol a.k.a wood alcohol/poison (10 percent of aspartame)

Methanol/wood alcohol is a deadly poison. Some people may remember methanol as the poison that has caused some "skid row" alcoholics to end up blind or dead. Methanol is gradually released in the small intestine when the methyl group of aspartame encounters the enzyme chymotrypsin.

*** Note This
The absorption of methanol into the body is sped up considerably when free methanol is ingested. Free methanol is created from aspartame when it is heated to above 86 Fahrenheit (30 Centigrade). This would occur when aspartame-containing product is improperly stored or when it is heated (e.g. as part of a "food" product such as Jello).

Methanol breaks down into formaldehyde in the body. Formaldehyde is a deadly neurotoxin. An EPA assessment of methanol states that methanol "is considered a cumulative poison due to the low rate of excretion once it is absorbed. In the body, methanol is oxidized to formaldehyde." They recommend a limit of consumption of 7.8 mg/day.

A one-liter (approx. 1 quart) aspartame-sweetened beverage contains about 56 mg of methanol. Heavy users of aspartame-containing products consume as much as 250 mg of methanol daily or 32 times the EPA limit.

Symptoms from methanol poisoning include headaches, ear buzzing, dizziness, nausea, gastrointestinal disturbances, weakness, vertigo, chills, memory lapses, numbness and shooting pains in the extremities, behavioral disturbances, and neuritis. The most well known problems from methanol poisoning are vision problems including misty vision, progressive contraction of visual fields, blurring of vision, obscuration of vision, retinal damage, and blindness. Formaldehyde is a known carcinogen, causes retinal damage, interferes with DNA replication and causes birth defects.

It has been pointed out that some fruit juices and alcoholic beverages contain small amounts of methanol. It is important to remember, however, that methanol never appears alone. In every case, ethanol is present, usually in much higher amounts. Ethanol is an antidote for methanol toxicity in humans.

The troops of Desert Storm were "treated" to large amounts of aspartame-sweetened beverages, which had been heated to over 86 degrees F in the Saudi Arabian sun. Many of them returned home with numerous disorders similar to what has been seen in persons who have been chemically poisoned by formaldehyde. The free methanol in the beverages may have been a contributing factor in these illnesses. Other breakdown products of aspartame such as DKP (discussed below) may also have been a factor.

In a 1993 act that can only be described as "unconscionable," the FDA approved aspartame as an ingredient in numerous food items that would always be heated to above 86 degree F (30 degree C).
The following are well-known products that use aspartame:

Diet sodas


Chewing gum

Cooking sauces


Tabletop sweeteners

Drink powders

Flavored water

Sugar-free products


(Aspertame, NutraSweet, Equal etc are all poisions.) Story Reports

Aspartame is a sweetener made from two amino acids, phenylalanine and the excitotoxin aspartate. It should be avoided at all costs. Aspartame complaints account for approximately 70 percent of ALL complaints to the FDA.

It is implicated in everything from blindness to headaches to convulsions. Sold under dozens of brand names such as NutraSweet and Equal, aspartame breaks down within 20 minutes at room temperature into several primary toxic and dangerous ingredients:

1. DKP (diketopiperazine) (When ingested, converts to a near duplicate of a powerful brain tumor causing agent)

2. Formic Acid (ant venom)

3. Formaldehyde (embalming fluid)

4. Methanol (causes blindness... extremely dangerous substance)

Common Examples: Diet soft drinks, sugar free gums, sugar free Kool Aid, Crystal Light, childrens' medications, and thousands of other products claiming to be 'low calorie', 'diet', or 'sugar free'. Even natural flavorings on the ingredient list of a product can be a cover for aspartame and/or MSG.

Hidden Sources Of MSG And Aspartame In Foods

What if someone were to tell you that a chemical (MSG) added to food could cause brain damage in your children, and that this chemical could effect how your children's nervous systems formed during development so that in later years they may have learning or emotional difficulties?

What if there was scientific evidence that these chemicals could permanently damage a critical part of the brain known to control hormones so that later in life your child might have endocrine problems?

How would you feel?

Suppose evidence was presented to you strongly suggesting that the artificial sweetener in your diet soft drink may cause brain tumors to develop and that the number of brain tumors reported since the introduction of this widespread introduction of this artificial sweetener has risen dramatically? Would that affect your decision to drink these products and especially to allow your children to drink them?

What if you could be shown overwhelming evidence that one of the main ingredients in this sweetener (aspartate) could cause the same brain lesions as MSG? Would that affect your buying decisions?

And finally, what if it could be demonstrated that all of these types of chemicals, called excitotoxins, could possibly aggravate or even precipitate many of today's epidemic neurodegenerative brain diseases such as Parkinson's disease, Huntington's disease, ALS, and Alzheimer's disease?

Would you be concerned if you knew that these excitotoxin food additives are a particular risk if you have diabetes, or have ever had a stroke, brain injury, brain tumor, seizure, or have suffered from hypertension, meningitis, or viral encephalitis?

Would you also be upset to learn that many of the brain lesions caused by these products in your children are irreversible and can result from a SINGLE exposure of these products in sufficient concentration?

How would you feel when you learn the food industry hides and disguises these excitotoxin additives (MSG and Aspartate) so they can't be recognized? Incredulous? Enraged?

The fact is many foods are labeled as having "No MSG" but in fact not only contain MSG but also are laced with other excitotoxins of equal potency and danger.

All of the above are true. And all of these well known brain toxins are poured into our food and drink by the thousands of tons to boost sales. These additives have NO OTHER purpose other than to enhance the TASTE of food and the SWEETNESS of various diet products.

Hidden Sources of MSG

As discussed previously, the glutamate (MSG) manufacturers and the processed food industries are always on a quest to disguise the MSG added to food. Below is a partial list of the most common names for disguised MSG. Remember also that the powerful excitotoxins, aspartate and L-cystine, are frequently added to foods and, according to FDA rules, require NO LABELING AT ALL.

Food Additives that ALWAYS contain MSG:

Monosodium Glutamate

Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein

Hydrolyzed Protein

Hydrolyzed Plant Protein

Plant Protein Extract

Sodium Caseinate

Calcium Caseinate

Yeast Extract

Textured Protein (Including TVP)

Autolyzed Yeast

Hydrolyzed Oat Flour

Corn Oil

Food Additives That FREQUENTLY Contain MSG:

Malt Extract

Malt Flavoring



Stock Flavoring

Natural Flavors/Flavoring

Natural Beef Or Chicken Flavoring


Food Additives That MAY Contain MSG Or Excitotoxins:



Soy Protein Concentrate

Soy Protein Isolate

Whey Protein Concentrate

Also: Protease Enzymes of various sources can release excitotoxin amino acids from food proteins.

If you see the word “protein” in an ingredient label, the product contains MSG.
Hidden Sources of MSG

(The grocery store is full of aspartame poision and MSG in many forms including hidden forms. This is the reason for many people being sick and dying. Both of these chemicals trick the brain into thinking something tastes good. These poisons are in many products. Do not let the government poison you via manufactured food products.) Story Reports

MSG- Monosodium Glutamate Poison

MSG is often the cause of insomnia, but it may cause migraine headaches, Alzheimer's disease, temporary blindness, fainting, instant diarrhea, and many other reactions. MSG goes through the brain barrier, which is very rare with most agents and drugs. Once in your brain, it picks at random some area of the brain and turns it on full blast. The result is that some function of your body goes hyper, and you suffer a "reaction."
