Glutamates, what are they

The most well known compound in the glutamate family is MSG. Federal law says that any food containing less than 99% pure MSG can be labeled any way the manufacturer wished. Therefore manufacturers use innocent sounding names such as:

• hydrolyzed protein
• vegetable protein
• soy protein isolate
• soy protein concentrate
• whey protein
• natural flavoring
• spices
• enzymes
• autolyzed yeast extract
• stock broth
• carregeenan
