No MSG chicken powder/sauces are fake and clever marketing

Always look at the ingredients label before believing the big bold printed NO MSG that meant to divert your attentions. They contain yeast extract and msg is found in yeast extract.

And also a particular fruit juice brand that have a slogan " Any fresher, you will have to...."

Look at the label:

Ingredients: Sucrose, Lime Juice, Citric Acid, Vitamin C, Permitted Preservative (E202), Vitamin E, Vitamin A, Beta-Carotene

My mil likes to use those bottled chicken sauces in her cooking which i do not like.

I think she thought those are pure chicken soup...

Most labels print No Added MSG.

There are naturally occurring MSG in some ingredients.

Other substances we need to be careful of are High Fructose Syrup (esp food from Korea) and Palm oil.

Prefer to cook with fresh ingredients
More effort but healthier.
