Monosodium Glutamate (MSG) by any other name……
Hello, good people!
I had a great response from my recent post that listed all the names by which gluten can be called. Thank you all for reading and responding. Now I am responding to a request to reprint a similar list of alternative names for MSG. So here is the list from a previous post written a few years ago.
Have you ever gone out to eat and after the meal you get a splitting headache?
This happens to me when there is MSG in the seasoning. If you share this reaction, you could have an allergy to this food additive. The following is a list of ingredients that manufacturers use to make you think their product is MSG free.
Monosodium Glutamate or MSG by any other name...?
- Calcium caseinate
- Glutamic acid
- Hydrolyzed corn gluten
- Hydrolyzed protein (like wheat, vegetable protein or soy protein)
- Autolyzed yeast
- Textured protein
- Monopotassium glutamate
- Sodium caseinate
Be sure to read the labels carefully and question ingredients that you don't recognize. Manufacturers are getting more creative every day.
peace and love
