my silly question: any jarred kimchi locally without MSG?

silence9 | Nov 7, 201109:42 AM

Hi... I am looking for store-bought kimchi that does not contain MSG. I don't know whether MSG is an essential ingredient to the pickling process of kimchi, but yesterday at the local korean market, all the jarred and/or bulk-produced kimchi sold there appeared to contain MSG. I bought some anyway, and it predictably gave me a headache and minor bloating an hour after it's delicious ingestion. Won't go down the road of MSG allergy vs. placebo effect; just looking for a reliable local source of non-MSG product. I know it's a long-shot, but figured perhaps some local korean hounds might have a lead. Thanks...
