MSG, monosodium glutamate, is a flavor- enhancer added to most commercially prepared foods. It is also an excitotoxin. That is how it enhances flavor, by manipulating flavor receptors in the brain.

I discovered I am MSG sensitive through gluten intolerance and migraines. MSG is added to almost all commercially prepared foods. I have found it in almost all condiments, packaged snacks, and convenience foods. MSG is even sprayed on conventionally raised crops in the field! This is why I am learning to make my own condiments from scratch, and buy only organic produce.
