Ok- I looked it up on Whole Foods website and this is what they say:

What is "glutamate"?

Glutamate is derived from glutamic acid, a major building block for proteins. It is found naturally in our bodies and in protein-containing foods, such as cheese, milk, meat, peas, and mushrooms. MSG is one of several types of glutamate. When glutamate is released during breakdown of the protein molecule, "free glutamate" is formed. These substances can be added to food to enhance its flavor and are the focus of much of the concern about glutamate. It is only in this free form that glutamate can enhance a food's flavor.

Some foods, such as ripe tomatoes and Parmesan cheese, contain high levels of naturally occuring free glutamate. The flavor enhancing effect of hydrolyzed protein products, including soy sauce, is due to the presence of free glutamate.

I would venture to guess that the seasoning they use on the burgers contains MSG. Something I stay away from.

The term "brain fog" is sometimes used when talking about Fibromyalgia symptoms. Do you have Fibromyalgia? If so, I would just like to say that I have it and I also have Celiac Disease and am a sensitive to cross-contamination, but have never seen or heard that one has anything to do with the other. Since this is only my own opinion from limited experience, take with a grain of salt.

If you do have Fibromyalgia, I would highly recommend a support board dealing with that to help you deal with the brain fog you are suffering from.

My best,
