Ditto on the msg. A lot of the cheap mac and cheese combos do also....I, too, get a headache when there is too much msg, and some of the house brand mac and cheese dinners set me to the medicine chest. I don't know the right words, but I think the rice in rice-a-roni has been processed so that it cooks faster. Does anyone know how to do that?Don’t buy anymore Rice-A-Roni. It has LOTS of MSG to the point if you out the entire seasoning packet in and eat more than half about 15% of the population get headaches.
it takes great, but you are better off with buying rice and Orzo and making it yourself wirh your own seasoning. If you cook Rice-A-Roni at least try adding half the seasoning packet then Adding some of your own seasoning.
Suggestion try buying Near East instead. If you want you can brown if first and even throw in some Orzo. It’s simply a safer, healthier product
