In February in an Australian supermarket first, we announced that 100% of Coles Brand food and drink products are now free from added Monosodium Glutamate (MSG) and artificial colours. You may have wondered how this impacts you, so our Coles Brand product experts are here to tell you all about it.

Meet our Coles Brand Product Expert, Jackie. She’s here to tell you a little more about why products often contain added MSG & Artificial Colours.
Why we removed Added MSG and Artificial Colours?
