  • its a type of filler. they use it to make you feel fuller then what you actually are. Its not a bad thing to eat. we usually eat it without even knowing it.

  • MSG can cause serious head aches. restaurants and food processors put it in food to increase the flavor, kind of like a salt substitute. I would talk to your doc if your worried about it, but its like high fructose corn syrup in EVERYTHING!!!
