It’s Everywhere!! The Many Hidden Names for MSG!

accentSo…you’re not eating MSG anymore because you’ve heard all about its health effects, right?!

Unfortunately, many products that say “MSG-Free” on the front of the package actually still contain hidden sources of this toxin. And it’s perfectly legal according to current labeling laws!

Outraged?! You should be!

It’s difficult to list all of the possible names that can disguise MSG because the food industry always seems to stay one step ahead of us consumers when creating new ways to “describe” their ingredients. For starters, though, click here for an overview of many of the names which disguise MSG on food labels.

Commonly reported physical effects of MSG ingestion are also included in the above link. I’m sure most of you will see a few ailments on that list that “hit close to home.”

This is just one example of the crap that we’re better off avoiding in our food as much as possible. Reading food labels can be really tricky, so it’s best to just:

1) Avoid foods with lengthy ingredients lists.

2) Don’t assume that a food has no ingredients list. For example, you may think that “sour cream,” “ground beef,” and “garlic salt” are pretty self-explanatory. But you’d be surprised at what you’ll find lurking on the back of the package of certain brands (I’ll blog about those later)!

3) If a food contains even ONE ingredient that you don’t understand, then leave it on the grocery shelf!

For many of us, it doesn’t take much of a toxin to have a devastating health effect, so don’t fool yourself into thinking that a little bit doesn’t matter! And, unless you enjoy spending hours at the store and online researching chemical ingredients, just stick with basic additive-free foods! If you’re not sure where to start with making such dietary changes, I’ve worked hard to create a book just for you!

  1. Very good to know. I have tried cutting all MSG out of my diet because it gives me debilitating, days-long migraines that no pain reliever can touch. As careful as I’ve been, sometimes I still get the headaches. This explains why!

    • Sounds like a likely culprit, indeed! It’s just SO WRONG what they are doing! Please forward the info and help get this message out! People deserve to know!!! It makes me especially angry that there are so many folks out there spending extra time, money and effort to avoid this stuff…and they’re still being “hit” with it in one way or another! Ugh!!!

    • I am also a migraine msg allergy sufferer. I started taking melatonin and I am now almost headache free. Read about how melatonin helps metabolize MSG.
      Miracle and easy. I sleep better too:)
