Which foods contain MSG?
Glutamates occur naturally in protein foods such as meat, fish, poultry, and vegetables. Free glutamates are found in foods like tomatoes, tomato paste, cheese, and mushrooms. So, many natural foods which we add to dishes to make them tasty are high in free glutamate. Glutamates are added to food to enhance its flavour. They are added in the form of MSG in vegetable protein, yeast extracts, flavors and fermented soy products such as soy sauce. Common foods that can contain added MSG include savoury foods such as stocks, seasonings, soup, sauces and savoury snacks/meals.
