I was recently browsing a holistic cooking website and discovered that most cheap brands of gelatin contain MSG. What? I had no idea of this, and I thought I would share it since many cooking/baking projects, such as pudding, contain gelatin, and I know that many people react badly to MSG. I occasionally get a migraine from it and always have trouble sleeping the night that I’ve eaten it. Two brands of gelatin that do not contain it are Bernard Jensen and Great Lakes. If you are planning to use gelatin, I recommend you invest in these brands, although they might be a little more pricey. If you can’t find them at your supermarket, you can order them online.
