My sister once worked at Chick-Fil-A and told me their chicken sandwiches were loaded with MSG, a known trigger of migraines. So I did some digging to verify whether it was true or not... and the survey says, "It's true!"
Two of the first three ingredients in a classic Chick-Fil-A chicken breast include MSG. Before you get to the bottom of the ingredient list, you'll also find partially hydrogenated oil (in the chicken breast and bun) and mono- and diglycerides (just in the bun).
I guess this shatters the myth that MSG is only in Chinese food. Now both you and I know it's in Chick-Fil-A's food. And, according to The Migraine Web, MSG is used heavily in the food served by Kentucky Fried Chicken, McDonald's, and Burger King. Check out the "How to Avoid MSG" article for their findings.
