Many scientists are rethinking the detriments of MSG, and as a result, some restaurant owners are shamelessly offering it to diners, extolling its praises.
Ken Lee, a professor and the director of food innovation at Ohio State University said “it’s not true that MSG has any kind of toxic or causative role in food allergies.”
Lee said “MSG’s primary ingredient is table salt, and glutamate a naturally occurring amino acid…one of the building blocks of protein. Glutamate is also found in tomatoes, different types of nuts, Parmesan cheese, mushrooms and soy sauce.
According to the FDA, MSG is synthesized by fermenting starch, sugar beets, sugar cane or molasses. The agency classifies the additive as “generally recognized as safe.”
If you have eaten Doritos or KFC, you can bet you’ve eaten MSG.
