or just do search in Google for "hidden MSG"
Hidden MSG is found in many popular brand-name drink products as well, such as Coke, Pepsi, Sprite, Tropicana Apple Juice and even in Glaceau Vitamin Water! McDonald's, Burger King, KFC, Wendy's and pretty much every other fast food chain uses MSG in its common name, monosodium glutamate, which enhances the flavor to make it taste better, but negatively affects your health.

How could the FDA approve of the ingredient "Natural flavoring" if it sounds so vague and uninformative to begin with? That's like somebody asking you what you did yesterday and you replied, "Natural things", which could mean anything!

Remember, as always, knowledge is power. Given the above information, would you buy a product that hides MSG with those ingredients? Do feel that MSG should be labeled on a product appropriately regardless of what form it's in? Should the FDA, which regulates labeling on food/drink products, be held accountable for allowing MSG to be hidden without proper labeling? If you feel that something, such as boycotting products with hidden MSG, should be done to stop all these deceptions from continuing to affect people's health, please sign this petition.
