Suitable for persons on a low sugar diet.
BUT please note -
When proteins containing glutamic acid are hydrolysed, whether by acid, alkali or by natural breakdown (autolysis) of yeast some MSG is formed. MSG whether from yeast or other sources stimulates taste buds, having a specific savoury flavour. It is also a flavour enhancer. Yeast and yeast extract are permitted as additives in organic foods, therefore there will be some MSG in organic foods which have added yeast, or yeast extract. Similarly MSG is naturally present in soy sauce and in some other ingredients.
Adding pure MSG, whatever the source is not permitted as it is not a permitted additive. This product says it has NO ADDED MSG but since the yeast extract is present, you will be advised to not purchase this product if you wish to avoid all traces of MSG.
Some people may be sensitive to MSG. It is not clear whether this is due to MSG itself, as it is a common component of all animals and most plants etc. They may just be sensitive to the D form which may be made in small quantities when some proteins are hydrolysed. Alternatively people may actually be sensitive to free glutamic acid, or to other protein breakdown products such as some of the small polypeptides.
For clear vegetable broth, add one cube to 1/2 litre of boiling water or use as is in dishes when preparing the food.
Vegetable oil (palm*), maltodextrin* (from maize), yeast extract, vegetables 1,6% (parsley*, carrots*, celery*,leek*, onions*), vegetable extract, chicory extract*, spices (lovage*, garlic*, curcuma*, mace*). Acidifying agent: citric acid
