No, The anti caking agent is like a silica agent, not msg.

Shirley,
If you are hypothyroid, you should avoid sea salt, with its higher content of iodine. It alters thyroid test results. If you have never been tested, maybe you should consider having it done.

Anonymous, thanks for your concern. It was the anti caking that made me fatigue, it is a form of msg. I feel better now without the anticaking. I will look into sea salt. Right now I take it and will find out if anything makes me fatigue. I was alittle fatigue but it was managable and think it is pms. I am taking a journal and will keep this in mind. I wont go to a doctor unless the doctor is educated in msg.

sea salt has a high content of natural iodine, doesnt that increase thyroid?

Where can I get more information?
I thought sea salt was healthy. I would like to know which salt is best?

Shirley, I'm not sure about the iodine but I use Maldon's Sea Salt (made in England) and there are no additives of any type in it. It comes in a box and is available at many stores. I buy it at Whole Foods. The salt is in the form of flaky crystals, so I grind it in a mortar if I need it to be more fine. I put in in a salt grinder for use at table or for more formal dinners I think it looks pretty in crystal salt cellars. I find that you don't need to use as much because it seems to have a sharper, saltier taste than regular salt. I'm trying to cut out MSG and also to cut down on my salt intake because I have hypertension. Wynn

Wynn, I used to have hypertension due to a blocked renal artery. I was very sensitive to items that constricted blood vessels - like MSG at that time. Taurine seemed to help me. Also, how did you make out at the restaurants?
