MSG (monosodium glutamate, also known as yeast extract and a myriad of other titles) is not a friend to our bodies. It’s a taste enhancer that is found in lots of our foods (not just Chinese buffets), but it’s also a known neuro-toxin! Dr. Russell Blaylock (a professor of neurosurgery at the Medical University of Mississippi) exposes some of the dangers of MSG in his book, Excitotoxins, The Taste That Kills, including weight gain, brain damage, chest pain, allergic reactions, seizures, and many more unpleasant side effects.
Why do I share all that?
Your favorite soup is most likely harboring MSG.
Sad, but true. After reading label after label on supermarket shelves, even some of the organic brands have MSG!
I have been so excited to find soup that is MSG-free! Pacific Foods soup tastes great and there are a couple of printable coupons currently available! I’ve found Pacific Foods in Target as well as Whole Foods type stores.
