This weekend I went on one of the health and fitness industry’s most well respected and authoritative courses on advanced Kinetic Chain Assesment, (taught by my ex-boss, friend and mentor, Dax moy). That probably means nothing to you apart from a load of gobbledeegook but the stuff I learnt is going to affect you in a BIG way!!

One thing that shocked me beyond belief and made me scared first and foremost for my own baby and secondly for all of my pregnant clients, friends and readers was a little known fact about MSG and how seriously it can affect your pregnancy health.

Now I think that most of us know full well that MSG during pregnancy is bad for us, right? There was a big panic a few years ago and a lot of Chinese restaurants banned it from their food ingredients, but what none of us know (or very few of us) is that MSG can come under different guises of at least 40 different names that we would never suspect AND because it is combined with other food additives, the food manufacturers are NOT REQUIRED to list it as an ingredient on the label – which makes it very difficult to exclude from your preganncy diet.

And do you know where it is most widely used?

  1. Isn’t that CRAZY???? I recently read about this on Dr. Mercola’s website (I think it was. I read so much stuff it could have been somewhere else). It is shocking and scary. YUCK.

  2. O.O It’s horrifying what manufacturers think is okay to hide from the public. Thank goodness I make my own baby food, and cook from scratch as much as possible. I wish everyone could.

  3. I knew about how bad MSG was but did NOT know it was in baby food!

  4. Joy – no neither did I and I was MORTIFIED when I found out!

    I switched to formual at 4 months because my milk dried up and I searched high and low for a formula that was soy free – when I finally found one I was over the moon, but turns out it had MSG in it all along!

    Then when iweaned River I started him on thos organic pots – they have MSG too!! Disgusting!

    Read the rest of my post because it lists all the hidden names for MSG – there’s over 40 of them!
