Hi LUANN, Dr. Oz has had it on his show, Dr. Jordan Rubin, Dr. Weil, Dr. Bernard and others I have read. Some other additives that have MSG are: Monosodium Glutimate, Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein, Hydrolyzed Protein, Hydrolyzed Plant Protein, Plant Protein Extract, Sodium Caseinate, Calcium Caseinate, Yeast Extract, Textured Protein Autolyzed Yeast, Hydrolyzed Oat Flour, Corn Oil, Malt Extract, Malt Flavoring, Bouillon, Broth, Stock, Flavoring, Natural Flavors/Flavoring, Natural Beef or Chicken Flavoring, MSG is an excitotoxin that can aggravate brain diseases such as Parkinson's Huntington's and Alzheimer's disease. In children could cause brain damage in how your children's nervous systems form during development so that they have learning or emotional difficulties. MSG causes the pancreas to triple the amount of insulin it makes causing humans to become obese. Please go to your internet and type MSG and it's side effects.

"This additive is a major cause of obesity."
Can you cite a credible source for that?
Also, I looked at the few boxes I have.. no MSG anywhere!

Do you realize MSG- monosodium glutimate is an additive in most of our processed foods, even well known companies use them to make you want more of their products. Ever hear of "No one can eat just one"? This additive is a major cause of obesity. Not only because it makes you crave more but what it does to your body.
