MSG, The Most Dangerous Food Additive?
April 10, 2013

To maintain optimal health it’s always a good idea to avoid processed foods whenever possible, because many of the additives in these foods can have negative or even toxic effects on the body. MSG (monosodium glutamate) is an additive that has been implicated in food allergies and other maladies. Although tolerance for MSG varies from person to person, reports of adverse reactions such as skin rashes, headaches, moodiness, irritability, IBS, heart palpitations, depression and more have been documented.

MSG is found in many processed foods, so be sure to read labels carefully. MSG is often “hidden” behind phrases like natural ingredients, natural seasonings, natural flavors or is listed specifically as maltodextrin, gelatin, glutamic acid, citric acid, hydrolyzed yeast, protein isolate, textured protein, hydrolyzed protein, hydrolyzed vegetable protein (HVP), soy protein extract, autolyzed plant protein, autolyzed yeast, yeast extract, sodium caseinate and modified corn starch.

Syfo Original Seltzer is absolutely free of all additives. The all-natural flavorings in our Naturally-Flavored Sparkling Waters are made from the oils selectively extracted from the peels of fruit. They are extracts and not straight compounds or emulsions. Depending on the flavor, the process uses only vegetable glycerin/and or ethyl alcohol which are both GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) by the FDA.
