Awareness of the dangers of MSG appears to be increasing

These days I see more signs claiming no MSG.  In Tesco today I saw packets of biscuits with “No MSG” labelling. I didn’t buy them, just photgraphed them.

Generally I do not want to promote evil multinational companies profits.  But until recently, you could either buy crisps for RM2 – RM3 laced with MSG, or spend about RM12 for a brand from Scotland, or another from Australia that were MSG free.

But now I notice two flavours from Lays made in Pakistan, and the rest from the US.  The US packets cost a lot more (but are bigger), and have MSG, but the natural flavour from Pakistan is only RM3.90 and appears not to.

I know I shouldn’t eat crisps, but once a month or so is not so bad. And encouraging non-MSG production is a good thing.
