Autolyzed Yeast Extract = MSG?

potterybliss | Jun 18, 2007 07:45 PM

Can someone give me some insight into autolyzed yeast extract vs. MSG? Is it the same thing? I've done some research on the net, but have not gotten a clear idea. I'm sensitive to MSG and try to avoid it as much as possible. As I read labels, I have come across autolyzed yeast extract in stuff like crackers, soups, and seasoned/salty things lately. Your knowledge will help me be a more informed consumer.

Thanks, y'all!
