Probably. Milk contained significant amounts of glumatic acid.

Re: does the fermentation process of kefir make msg

Water kefir is made by introducing kefir grains and bacteria to a water sugar solution and letting it to ferment for a few days. Water kefir is best made using water grains that are pre-cultured and packaged for export. Water grains look like some translucent mass of granules that resemble a cauliflower in shape. These granules are used as seed compound to start the fermentation process.

Kefir drink has been known to help in the cure of back pain, neck pain and diverticulitis. It is also believed to help in the detoxification of the intestinal and removal of intestinal parasites. The healthy drink is also known to lower the blood pressure levels and reduce the risk of cardiac arrest by over 30% in mid aged folks.

I didn't see any thing about Monosodium Glutamate when using water.

Re: does the fermentation process of kefir make msg

I use to ferment my own Kefir but it produced too much kefir grains and I don't drink that much Kefir. But, if you use a milk that is good -- the fermentation process does not produce MSG.

I now just use commercial Kefir that I buy from health food stores or groceries stores.

Re: does the fermentation process of kefir make msg

Do you have a source for concluding that MSG is not formed? What does using a "good" milk have to do with it? Curious. TIA.
