Barefoot and in the kitchen
I ordered some Minor's beef base from Amazon. I ordered the Original formula. The tub I received says No Added MSG. Can someone confirm, are these two different items, or is the No MSG label just printed on the tub now? I want the real deal! Thanks!
There are 4 formulations. Original, "natural ingredients," low sodium, and no MSG. The "No MSG" one still contains a bunch of hydrolyzed protein, yeast extract, and nucleotides. Plenty of glutamic acid added... it's just a labeling thing. I'm curious how much of a difference there is between that and the original, but I wouldn't sweat it too much. I'd bet they're very similar.

FWIW, nowadays I buy the lower sodium version so I can use more without overseasoning.
