Certification: Truth In Labeling

Truth In Labeling

It’s all about knowledge.

The Truth in Labeling Campaign was incorporated in 1994 as a nonprofit organization dedicated to securing full and clear labeling.

It’s about knowledge, the consumer’s right to know what is in the products that we use and to understand that neurotoxic amino acids are being intentionally added to — with FDA approval — products that we use every single day.

They are an all-volunteer group funded entirely through donations. Neither our staff nor our directors are paid. We rent no offices, and we use no professional fund raisers. Even the cost of disseminating information is primarily borne by volunteers.

The first (and ongoing) project of The Truth in Labeling Campaign (TLC) was to secure identification of processed free glutamic acid (MSG) whenever and wherever it occurs. For over 30 years, concerned consumers have tried to work with the FDA to resolve this identification issue, but have found no evidence that the FDA is ever going to act on their behalf. It appears that only through a true grassroots effort might the FDA’s refusal to require labeling of MSG be resolved.

There is evidence that MSG contributes to a number of illnesses and diseases including:
Retinal Degeneration
Brain Damage
