I shake my tiny fist at Whole Foods.
MSG is nasty nasty stuff that gives me a headache. I hate it. I can always tell when I’ve ingested it because the headache is pretty distinctive… similar to both a pressure headache and a dehydration headache but not quite the same as either.
We went to Whole Foods and got a whole bunch of wheat-free junk food, including some nummy cheese flavored nuts.
Nummy, addictive cheese flavored nuts.
That gave me a nasty headache. At a time I had to stay at work for several hours.
So, looked at the label. Yeast Extract strikes again. The “healthy food” version of MSG to fool people who are checking the labels for MSG. I hate it when we forget to check for that. We’re good about not buying the few fru-fru products our local grocery store offers that have it, but totes forgot to check when we looked at the ingredients at WF. For shame, Whole Foods. For shame, addictively nummy nut company. I could eat your damn nuts if they didn’t have that yeast extract crap in them. Luckily we also got some equally nummy but not-headache-inducing imported nut mixes from Spain (now labeled “Mine” rather than “Ours”). You don’t need MSG to be nummy, just to be addictive and to give me headaches. Grrr.
Note: #2 loves MSG and is totes unaffected by it. Lucky her.
Do you ever screw up when you buy food?
