McDonalds does use MSG. I knew it! MSG is in all hamburgers. Read on.

I've never been able to confirm from their website or any other place I've found until now. The link is a PDF with all of mickey d's favorite recipes. How to make a mcdonald's hamburger is there when you scroll and it says ALL hamburgers use Accent, which has MSG. I knew it. It's the reason I always want 2 more after I eat one. It's so addictive.

MSG is addictive?
I thought it just had a reputation for causing migraines in some people, which I think was disproved years ago but am not entirely sure.

Why are you even eating mcdonalds? First step in weight loss, FAST FOOD IS GONE! Everything you eat (85% of it) should be home cooked, and the rest is like salad, or sushi, for gods sake, mcdonalds isnt REAL FOOD!

I am the OP. And the other poster is right - I ate mcdonalds long ago and now have an occassional quarter pounder with cheese twice a year. Me thinks the poster who was rude hasn't lost any weight this week and is taking it out on us in here. You can do it. Get back on track.

You think that the anti-fast food poster qualifies as rude?? You've missed some seriously nasty threads 'round these parts. It's not like she threw around pointless nasty names or even a personal insult.

Besides, she's right. The only people I've stumbled across during my years on this site who lose weight eating fast food have had 100-200 pounds to lose. If you go from eating a supersized Big Mac meal with a side of double-cheeseburger and cut back to a regular Big Mac meal with diet coke, it works for a while, usually until they see the light and cut that back to a twice-a-year treat, or they give up and regain.

the information in that file isn't all correct. perhaps it is correct back in the times that it says the information is quoted from: the 50s, 60s and 70s.

i was the manager of a mcdonalds for a few years. although i'm not doubting for a second that there is msg in the seasoning, a lot of info in this file is incorrect.

(it's also really easy to just ask for your burger with no seasoning, by the way)

With the Super Bowl and Sochi Olympics rapidly approaching, gangsters are seeing dollar signs Wholesale Jerseys 2016 .Sophisticated crime rings are developing pop-up e-marketplaces and sourcing cheap apparel from abroad, readying to profit millions of dollars selling counterfeit goods to unsuspecting deal hunters Stitched NFL Patch.More than $17 million worth of Super Bowl 2013 merchandise -- from fake jerseys, hats and jackets to tickets and other souvenirs -- was seized last year, according to U.S. Immigration and Customers Enforcement.

While the NFL has forced the shutdown of more than 2,500 websites offering counterfeit team merchandise
  • Movie Football
  • , the federal government arrested a dozen people ahead of this year's Super Bowl and the Sochi Organizing Committee pledged to implement a more effective response to the theft of licensed Olympic gear
  • Winnipeg Blue Bombers Jersey
  • , the hill is steep.Without further consumer awareness, defeat is like a large-scale game of whack-a-mole, said David Sugden, an attorney specializing in grey markets at Call & Jensen.“Whenever there’s demand for anything --whether it is sports memorabilia or airplane parts -- you’re going to find there’s an effort from dishonest entrepreneurs to sell dishonest products,” he said.Brands may succeed in shutting down one
  • Atlanta Falcons Jersey
  • , but two more are always waiting in the wings.Traditional crime rings are attracted to the ease of importing apparel over, say, drugs and narcotics, and can quickly develop a website for the sale of illicit merchandise
  • Baltimore ravens Jersey
  • . The sites can also be written in such a way that the actual ring leaders are difficult to prosecute.

    And it's extremely lucrative
  • Indianapolis Colts Jersey
  • . Despite the fact that some of these counterfeited products are indeed far superior to their legitimate counterparts, thieves oftentimes price them in the same ballpark so as to maintain the ruse that the products being purchased are real
  • Buffalo Bills Jersey
  • .“It allows you to maintain the margins of legitimate goods, making it an extremely attractive business with a very low barrier to entry,” said Fred Feldman, chief marketing officer of brand protection firm MarkMonitor
  • Chicago Bears Jersey
  • , which works with the NFL.It’s also easier to fool a shopper online, whereas consumers tend to be more cautious of a random man selling t-shirts out of the back of his truck in the rear of the stadium parking lot.

    “Prior to Internet commerce
  • Cincinnati Bengals Jersey
  • , counterfeiters were often outside of stadiums or in flea markets or just on city streets,” said Sugden. “That kind of environment suggests to a reasonable consumer that this stuff probably is not authentic.”

    Of course, some shoppers looking for
  • Cleveland Browns Jersey
  • a deal are willing to sacrifice the quality. In fact, a MarkMonitor survey from 2012 found that these deal hunters are 20 times more likely to buy counterfeit than regular consumers.

    “Consumers have become more price sensitive and understand that one of the powers of the Internet is to compare and contrast prices to find the best deal NFL ,” Feldman said.

    With millions of revenue on the line, that has become a nightmare for brand owners.
