The Lorna Doones, well, you may have a point there. I’m on the fence on this one. “Heal Your Headache” book says that "artifical’ flavors don’t seem to be an issue. Other than that, the ingredients are Enriched Flour, soybean oil and/or palm oil, sugar, partially hydrogenated cottenseed oil, corn flour, salt, high fructose corn syrup, baking soda, cornstarch, soy lecithin, artificial flavor. Yeah, not the healthiest lol, but does any of those ingredients often harbor MSG? I tried looking up the ingredients on an MSG list. Couldn’t find any of these. In Heal Your Headache book, in the food section, he recommends shortbread cookies as a snack. I thought these would be ok. Maybe they are causing me more problems. I can’t snack on nuts, so I dont’ know what to snack on if i give these up lol, but I could if needed.

As far as the “organic” items I’ve purchased, these are all “whole” foods, no added ingredients. Plain beef, chicken, vegetables, where there is only ONE ingredient in each food,…the food itself So there I am ok. I don’t use any condiments or salad dressings because of the multiple ingredients and the vinegar. I’ve lost a lot of weight. Not good for me, as I’m thin to begin with, but if I DO have MSG in my diet still, the Lorna dunes are the only source. What do ya think?

MSG (Monosodium Glutamate) is not an artificial flavor. (Glutamate occurs naturally in many foods, and when cooked, heated for long periods of time, “processed”, etc. its released and can cause problems in some people who are sensitive.
The "Enriched Flour, partially Hydrogenated cottonseed oil, high fructose corn syrup, corn starch, and soy lecithin, are all red flags for MSG, and could potentially cause problems.
As far as the fresh vegetables go, many fruits and vegies here in the States are sprayed with a product called “Auxigro”. (It also is considered to be “ALL NATURAL” because of course, its glutamate based.) Again, for some people who are msg-sensitive it can and does cause problems.
Whats left to eat, you ask? Not much unless you make it yourself.
Sad, but true.
