I know some people who have to avoid MSG because of issues with excess sodium in their diets causing arrhythmias. I also have heard of austism spectrum kids and even other people having reactions to glutamic acid/glutamate, not just from the salt packets but also from bone broth, seaweeds, and others. It's not a nocebo reaction: it's a real thing. It's just not a concern unless you have something else going on, like salt imbalance issues or neurostim issues.

True ... although, the one that contained MSG I saw contained a lot fo other stuff, too. It's just pork skin fried in it's own fat - leave it alone! :-)

Only need to be careful if you're susceptible to nocebo effects. ;)

Good pork rinds should only contain pork skin and salt. I have never seen MSG on the label.

I just googled and found some brands with "flavored" pork rinds that do contain MSG. So be careful.

Unflavored pork rinds are unlikely to have much in the way of unbound glutamates, but collagen and gelatin (which are proteins heavily represented in pork rinds) are about 11% glutamic acid in their amino acid profiles. The major difference here is that the glutamate only gets into your bloodstream as fast as you can digest the protein.

I find the Old Dutch to be the best, just pork, salt, and lard on the label. I am not sure if they sell them in your country though.
