Other names for MSG- THE LIST

These products contain the highest percentage of free Glutamates:Hydrolyzed Vegetable or Plant Protein,Autolyzed Plant Protein,Sodium or Calcium Caseinate,Textured Protein,Yeast Extract,Autolyzed Yeast,Vegetable Protein Extract,Mono Potassium Glutamate,Glutamic Acid,Gelatin.

The following products contain in varying amounts some factory created free glutamates:Malted Barley,Barley Malt,Barley Malt Flavoring,Dextrose,Maltodextrin,Caramel Flavoring or Coloring,Carrageenan,Whey or Whey Protein,or Whey Protein Isolate,Lecithin or Soy Lecithin(which is produced from the sludge leftover after soybeans are processed by the way Yum Yum ! ),Gluten and Gluten Flour,Soy Protein,Soy Sauce,Modified Food Starch,Corn Syrup or Corn Syrup Solids,High Fructose Corn Syrup,Guar and Vegetable Gum,Annatto,Dough Conditioners,Milk Powder and Dry Milk Solids,Rice Syrup or Brown Rice Syrup," Low Fat" or " No-Fat" items, most protein powders (as in body building drinks)and beware of things which say " natural flavorings" or " enriched, vitamin enriched, or protein enriched". These items may have less free glutamates than the top list, but when a product contains several of these ( and most processed foods contain 3 or more of these from my personal experience) then it really adds up to a dangerous laundry list of free glutamates that are harming your body.
