I'm guessing it is gluten...monosodium GLUTimate...I'm guessing, though by the GLUTE in the word glutimate...anyone else know?

MSG from my understanding is only a problem if the product is made outside of the US. It used to be a concern, but no longer is.... IF you would like to read about Im sure I have the information somewhere. I can look it up again. Impretty sure that's what the new understanding.

MSG is on the most recent "SAFE" list for celiacs.

Remember too, that other products like rice and corn also have "gluten" it's just that those gluten grains are not harmful to celiacs. The key is figuring out which product use corn or rice gluten and which one use the bad stuff. But for the most part, I have found that the rice and corn gluten is listed as such on the labels.
