Monosodium Glutamate – Dangers of Hidden MSG in Your Food

Monosodium Glutamate (MSG) is in almost everything. I remember growing up knowing that MSG was in Chinese food as a flavor enhancer, but today, MSG is hidden in a wide variety of foods including baby food. These excitotoxins are hidden in everyday foods that we eat under names such as glutamate, aspartame, broth, casein or caseinate, textured protein, hydrolyzed or autolyzed yeast. Even such well know products such as whey protein, whey protein isolate and whey protein concentrate are some of the .

Apparently, animals exposed to MSG early in life prefer sweet foods later on. Obesity may be related to MSG exposure early on in life, says Dr Russell Blaylock, author of Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills. This is the first part of a series of videos on Monosodium Glutamate and your health.
