Also, Bragg does not add any MSG to its liquid amino products. However, MSG is found naturally occurring in many foods, such as mushrooms, tomatoes, parmesan cheese, and soybeans. Since Bragg Liquid Aminos is made from soybeans, there can be some very small amounts of naturally occurring MSG. Patricia Bragg is personally very opposed to adding MSG as a food ingredient to foods, and she is very sensitive to MSG.

Bragg Questions & Answers
What are Amino Acids?
Amino Acids are the building blocks of all our organs and tissues. They are also the building blocks from which different food proteins are constructed. When we eat a protein food, such as meat or soybeans, the natural hydrochloric acid in the stomach digests the protein, releasing the Amino Acids. They are the link between the food we eat and assimilation for our body tissue. Lack of adequate Amino Acids may make it impossible for the vitamins and minerals to perform their specific duties.
What is the difference between Bragg Liquid Aminos and regular Soy Sauce?
Bragg Liquid Aminos is a healthy alternative to Soy and Tamari sauce. No table salt or preservatives are added.
Are the soybeans used for Bragg Liquid Aminos genetically engineered?
Their Liquid Aminos are third party certified non-GMO. GMO soybeans are produced by Monsanto, and sold under the brand name Roundup Ready. These soybeans are altered to resist the herbicide glyphosate, and have been available since 1995. Bragg Live Foods buys its Liquid Aminos ingredients from a combine soy operation which, in turn, buys the soybeans from numerous sources in the central part of the United States. No Roundup Ready soybeans are purchased as part of this collective method, nore are they used in Bragg products
If there is no salt in the Liquid Aminos, where does the salty taste come from?
The salty taste comes from the soybeans that are used to make Bragg Liquid Aminos. There is no salt added of any kind (land or sea). The naturally occurring sodium from the soybeans is approx. 160 mg. per 1/2 tsp.
Is it OK for a person on a low-salt or sodium diet to use Liquid Aminos?

Where is the expiration date printed?
The Bragg Liquid Aminos expiration date is printed on the upper portion of the bottle, above the label, at the shoulder and neck taper area. Due to the dark color of the Liquid Aminos, the stamping can be difficult to find. We suggest tilting the bottle until the air bubble in the bottle is under the shoulder area, then slowly rotate the bottle until the expiration date stamping becomes visible, see photo below. The lower line of the 2 contains the expiration date. The upper line contains the 'lot' number for manufacturer reference and the time, in 24 hour format, that it was bottled. Bragg Liquid Aminos has a shelf life of 5 years; although due to its nature, Bragg Liquid Aminos can be safely used for many years after expiration.
