What is MSG (Monosodium Glutamate)?
MSG is a flavor enhancer commonly added to canned foods, Chinese food, and other processed food products. It is the salt form of the amino acid glutamic acid. Glutamic acid (and not MSG) is found naturally in our bodies and in dietary protein sources (i.e. eggs, beef, beans, etc).
Does Mike’s Mix contain MSG?
No. Although MSG can naturally form in dairy products from the breakdown of glutamic acid (one of the amino acids that makeup proteins), it is very low in fresh dairy products and does not present in fresh whey proteins at any significant level.
