Progresso Soup’s “No MSG” slogan debunked

This is an ingredient list for Progresso Soup’s Light Savory Vegetable Barley soup. I am posting this in order to debunk Progresso’s claim that their soups are “MSG-free”. All ingredients in boldface indicate ingredients which are hidden forms of MSG.

Water, Celery, Beef Broth, Tomatoes, Onions, Carrots, Green Beans, Barley, Tomato Paste, Contains Less Than 1% Of: Chicory Root Extract, Modified Corn Starch, Salt, Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein (Corn, Soy And Wheat), Sugar, Onion Powder, Garlic Powder, Autolyzed Yeast Extract, Caramel Color, Roast Beef, Dried Parsley, Spice, Calcium Chloride, Citric Acid, Disodium Inosinate, Disodium Guanylate, Natural Flavor
