Behind the Label Q&A
This is a great question.
In order for a product to carry an organic claim, the production process must be certified from start to finish through a yearly audit. This ensures that all of the criteria of the USDA Organic Regulations are met.
Here are a few ways to help distinguish between the different labels:
- Organic: Animals must be fed organic grains and USDA Organic Regulations are followed
- Natural: Products are minimally processed, no artificial ingredients
Absolutely. All of the products Hormel Foods manufactures that contain monosodium glutamate (MSG) are clearly labeled, as required by law.
Please know that MSG is not allowed to be listed under the broader heading of “flavorings” or “spice extracts” so it will never be disguised as such. Rather it will always be clearly listed as MSG.
