MSG is a flavor enhancer. Simply stated, it makes food taste better. But since the introduction of MSG in the American diet, many people (likely still unaware of the cause) have a physical reaction to consuming foods that contain this additive.
While the FDA states that these are short term reactions and defines it as "MSG Symptom Complex", the symptoms are disturbing and range from burning sensations of the mouth, head and neck, to weakness in arms or legs, chest pain, headache, upset stomach and hives.
But it gets worse. New studies link MSG to obesity, eye damage and depression.
MSG hides behind many names on nutrition labels. Choose products from companies that do not use MSG. But be aware that it can be deceiving.
