The Truth on Mono-Sodium Glutamate (MSG) and Milk-Based Proteins
Recently there has been a great deal of confusion with regards to Mono-Sodium Glutamate (MSG) and milk-based proteins. MSG is used as a flavor enhancer in many processed foods. Muscle Milk does not contain MSG. Below is an accurate, straight-forward explanation to clarify this question for consumers.
About 10% of the protein in a glass of milk is glutamic acid; however there is no MSG in milk-based proteins. Muscle Milk and MONSTER MILK product formulas contain only milk-based proteins. MSG is the sodium salt of free-form glutamic acid. Glutamic acid that is bound to a protein is not the free-form amino acid, therefore cannot exist as MSG. In milk-based proteins all glutamic acid is bound to other naturally occurring amino acids that form the proteins of milk. Additionally, about 10% of the protein in Muscle Milk and MONSTER MILK is glutamic acid, however there is no MSG in Muscle Milk or MONSTER MILK. All glutamic acid in Muscle Milk is bound (non free-form) to the naturally occurring amino acids that form the milk-based proteins. Individuals sensitive to MSG do not react to proteins that contain bound glutamic acid (i.e. milk-based proteins). Furthermore, free-form, unbound glutamic acid is not added to any Muscle Milk or MONSTER MILK products therefore MSG is not present.

Dr. George Brooks, Ph.D. sits on the board of advisors for CytoSport. During his graduate studies at the University of Michigan, his extensive research in the areas of "Oxygen Debt" and "Anaerobic Threshold" lead to several hypotheses and fundamental revisions in the understanding of the metabolic response to exercise. The knowledge gained in these efforts led to the invention of PolyLactate and the formulation of the original Cytomax.
Dr. Brooks was recognized for his lifetime of outstanding scientific contributions related to sports medicine and exercise science at the 2007 Awards and Tributes Committee of the American College of Sports Medicine. He was awarded the Honor Award at the Annual Meeting in New Orleans, Louisiana. The ACSM Honor Award is the highest award of the College given to only one individual each year.
