U.S. Products Not Containing MSG



Monosodium Glutamate (MSG) is commonly used in many foods as a flavor enhancer. Some people report sensitivity to Monosodium Glutamate and prefer to avoid foods containing the ingredient. If we add MSG to our products, it will be listed in the ingredient statement as Monosodium Glutamate. We have not added Monosodium Glutamate as a flavor enhancer to the following Frito-Lay products. See ingredient statements for naturally occurring sources of glutamic acid.
