MSG in Health Products



MSG in Health products
MSG           Most people have heard of the dangers of 'MSG' or Monosodium Glutamate. However many don't realize that it is in almost everything that is prepackaged or manufactured. MSG is not only cheap, but it enhances flavours of whatever food it is put into making it even more 'irresistible'. Since people have been alerted to the troubles and dangers of MSG most companies avoid using it by that name. However, the manufacturers have not eliminated using MSG, they have simply renamed it.

           What's worse is manufacturing companies are adding greater quantities than in the past. They are even targeting people who purchase so called 'heath products'. Most health powders and bars contain some type of MSG.  Unfortunately those energy/protein bars you've been eating to stay healthy probably have calcium caseinate or whey which usually are laced with MSG. From our research anything with the words isolates or hydrolyzed are actually hidden MSG.


           The next time you're about to consume your quick and easy health bar or protein shake you should read the label on the back and look for any of these other names used to hide MSG:
  • Anything "hydrolyzed"
  • Any "hydrolyzed protein"
  • Any "flavors" or "flavoring"
  • Anything "enzyme modified"
  • Anything containing "enzymes"
  • Anything "protein fortified"
  • Anything "fermented"
  • Anything "isolate"
  • Anything "enriched"
  • Anything "vitamin enriched" 
  • Calcium caseinate,  Sodium caseinate   
  • Autolyzed yeast
  • Yeast food, Yeast nutrient
  • Soy protein, soy protein concentrate
  • Whey protein, whey protein concentrate 
          These are only a few names manufacturing companies are using to mask the use of MSG. If you are looking for an easy and great source of protein that does not contain any fillers or chemicals Suede Hills Alfalfa Powder  is for you. Our alfalfa is organic real food, packed with more protein than beef, classed as raw food,  and is full of nutrients, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and digestive enzymes. All of which your body utilizes to recover after a long workout or for the rest of us, just dealing with the day to day stresses of life.
