No Added MSG

While MSG can occur naturally in foods that contain sources of free glutamates, GOFoods does not add MSG to any of its products. Monosodium Glutamate is a sodium salt of glutamic acid, a naturally occurring non-essential amino acid used as a food additive and is commonly marketed as a flavor enhancer.

Today MSG is primarily made from bacterial fermentation of carbohydrates, and several studies indicate a number of health concerns associated with MSG including obesity, migraine headaches, food allergies, and hyperactivity in children. Other studies show some association between MSG and asthma.
