Do natural flavors contain MSG?

The words “natural flavor,” “natural flavors,” and “natural flavoring” are among the most confusing you will find on food labels. MSG and protein hydrolysates (e.g., hydrolyzed soy protein, autolyzed yeast extract) are flavor enhancers, but they are a special case because of their high glutamate content (think MSG).
