MSG?

Scott asks…

I was talking about this site with my coworkers and one of them told me that ramen contains MSG, which I was not aware of before. Do you know of any ramen brand that does not contain MSG? Maybe you could post my concerns on your site and see what others have to say about this.

Update: Top Ramen (from Nissin) does contain MSG

Update: Union Foods was nice enough to write back to me today. The answer is pretty much what we thought. Ramen has no MSG, but the seasoning packets do. According to Mary from Union Foods, “To be sure regardless of the brand that you are eating, check the label. Because people can have an allergic reaction the FDA requires that it is listed in the ingredients.”
