Golden Mountain Seasoning Sauce uses two flavor enhancers but no MSG. The flavor enhancer disodium guanylate is, according to Wikipedia, "produced from dried fish or dried seaweed" and is often used in conjunction with disodium-inosinate to create the taste of umami. This flavor enhancer combination is known as disodium ribonucleotides and is not recommended for those with gout or asthma or people with an allergic reaction to asprin (see Wikipedia for more details).
