BUYERS BEWARE! “ALL NATURAL?” THINK TWICE…


GOOD MORNING!

Just sharing a discovery…

As I was reading the ingredients list on a bag of Salt and Vinegar Pop Chips, I was disappointed to discover the presence of “autolyzed yeast extract” in this supposed “healthy snack.” Autolyzed yeast extract is a form of MSG (monosodium glutamate).

What do we know about MSG?

Basically, that it is a neurotoxic flavor enhancer! Ingesting this toxin can cause diabetes, adrenal gland malfunction, seizures, high blood pressure, excessive weight gain, stroke and other health problems.

You can google MSG and see for yourself, but know this:

It hides under many different names like:
  • Autolyzed yeast
  • Calcium caseinate
  • Gelatin
  • Glutamate
  • Glutamic acid
  • Hydrolyzed protein
  • Monopotassium glutamate
  • Sodium caseinate
  • Textured protein
  • Yeast extract
  • Yeast food
  • Yeast Nutrient
