MSG (Monosodium Glutamate)
Kings Buffet prides itself on listening to its customers’ concerns, preferences and health concerns. Monosodium glutamate (MSG) is a natural occurring by-product as well as a synthetically reproduced flavour enhancer and preservative used by many food manufacturers and establishments. Remember the bright red and white Accent package – 100% pure MSG.
Many people consider MSG to be a trigger for food allergies that, in its mildest reaction produces “dry-mouth” all the way through migraine headaches and even potentially lethal anaphylactic shock syndrome.
Kings Buffet eliminated its use as a seasoning several years ago and we say with confidence – “No MSG Added”. However, that being said, some fresh, frozen and pre-prepared products that we purchase (like bacon, sausages, salad dressings and base mixes) have or may have MSG.
Kings Buffet Group regularly updates our information about this and other related issues. We have learned that many foods, including fresh vegetables such as green peppers and mushrooms contain naturally occurring MSG and that any statement regarding its presence, or lack thereof, could potentially be in error.
We want to see you often so please, let management know if you have food allergies or a question regarding our ingredients.
