What are the ingredients on the "nectar"? The fact that it's called a juice "drink" feels ominous.

I looked it up on line before I made my original comment on this post and it is banana water and sugar.

when reading a label "natural flavor" is code for MSG just thought you might want to know.

Perhaps, but I've found different ingredient listings on several websites, none of which mentions MSG. I doubt there is MSG in this beverage, but it's possible I suppose.

When I click the link that you posted from walmart it shows the ingredients listed as: Water, Banana Puree, Sugar, Lemon Juice. (contains 25% banana juice)

I also saw another one that is Hero brand that says all natural, not from concentrate, no high fructose corn syrup (but doesn't list ingredients) and kosher also.

Let us know how it goes with your experiment. Good or bad, it sounds interesting.

That is my point, they don't have to say MSG because "natural flavors" IS MSG. There are enough crazy people like me out there that read labels on ALL their store bought food that manufactures have changed what things are called to hide it. MSG is a flavor enhancer that comes from kelp and the listing of "natural flavors" always means MSG

I think it might be more apt to say that MSG can be put under the umbrella term of "Natural Flavor" than to say that all "Natural Flavor" ingredients are disguised MSG.

At least from what I've gleaned from various sources on the web.

yes that is a true statement however 99% of the time "natural flavors" means MSG and the 1% of the time when it doesn't than the label will say "no MSG added" right after the "natural flavors". Take it from some one who has a family member that is alergic to MSG. Not trying to be a jerk or put down what you did. I am sure it will turn out great MSG is something that makes flavors stronger thats why it is so popular in processed foods of all kinds from sweet to savory. I was just trying to point out something you may not already know.

No worries, I wasn't taking it that way. I appreciate your heads up, and it led me to do more research on the matter. I cannot see how being informed could ever be a bad thing.
