Can you call them ahead of time and find out if they use MSG? If you can find out what they use in the sauces, then you can choose better. Some sauces have a LOT of sugar in them. Some have a lot of cornstarch. I use some to thicken when I cook but you might be best to avoid it if you are keeping to a strict phase 1.
