Hello scottvalentine83-ga,

According to Chipotle's website, they don't use any additives. If you
have allergies they tell you to contact them by sending them your
question by filling out an online form. (This is one of the most
annoying websites I've ever seen for cumbersome navigation.)

Nutrition chart does not show MSG.

I have certain allergies and have specific questions regarding your
food and my diet. Where can I find this info?
Please contact us on the SPEAK ( section of our
website, so we can personally work with you to meet your needs.

Choose Speak from the flash menu and fill in the form to ask your question.

How's the food, dood?
My name is Joe, and those other doods are David (aka Mo'Joe) and Dawn
(aka Mojo Mama). We nose the food. If you've been to Chipotle, tell me
what you think. What you liked, what you didn't, whatever. Or spout
off about anything. I will write you back a real response. I have the
answers to your questions (well, mostly). Speak, and be heard! Go!

Will this meet your needs? Thanks.

Ingredients in Chipotle restaurant salsa?

Answer by pknutson_sws
"I too have reactions to some mexican foods. If the sauce is Chipotle
based, the #1 culprit would be what is called "natural smoke
flavoring" as one of the ingredients in the sauce. It is a common
allergin. The next common allergin is Cumin (Comino) powder. It is
actually coriander seeds, and you could be allergic to either the seed
or the coriander."
