ALL creamed soups, store bought stock/broth, worchestire sauce, soy sauce, packaged flavored rices and pastas, and several other things that aren't coming to mind right now are full of MSG. It's very bad for you, and even worse for a LO who's brain is growing so rapidly. You can make broth easily, and you can make a rue for cream sauces instead of the creamed soups. Once I started reading what was in the crap I was eating I changed the way I cook. (I also found out today that there is MSG in some vaccines! WHY!?) Anyway, that's my $0.02, I'll step off my soapbox now...

Me too, Momma. Not to mention that my daughter has a serious dairy allergy.....

I would be VERY interested in a good recipe for a roue for cream sauces....especially if it's something I can make with soy or rice milk.
