“Do any McDonald's foods contain MSG (Monosodium Glutamate)?”
Hi Arnel. We don't add monosodium glutamate (MSG) to any of our products. However, we do use ingredients such as hydrolyzed plant protein and hydrolyzed vegetable protein, which are widely used in the food industry, and may cause reactions in individuals who are sensitive to MSG because of their glutamate content.
A number of common food ingredients, found at grocery stores and in some of our menu items, such as tomatoes, parmesan cheese and mushrooms, also contain high levels of naturally-occurring free glutamates and may also cause reactions in MSG-sensitive individuals.
If you would like to find out more information about the ingredients in our food, please take a look at the FoodFacts on our website.
