Monosodium Glutamate

You may have read recently in the [tag]New York Times[/tag] an [tag]article[/tag], “[tag]China’s True Dash of Flavor[/tag]” by Fuchsia Dunlop, that tries to sooth readers into a laconic [tag]gullibility[/tag] around the use and consumption of [tag]MSG[/tag] or [tag]monosodium glutamate[/tag].

This article is so substatially unfortunate on various levels.

It suggests that, as many “good” [tag]chinese[/tag] [tag]cooks[/tag] use MSG, this highly [tag]processed[/tag] [tag]industrial[/tag] agent is good enough for you.

Tomorrow, I will be posting an article that gives you the [tag]facts[/tag] about [tag]monosodium[/tag] [tag]glutamate[/tag] without insulting your intelligence or taste.

You can decide if you want to eat a neurotoxin, gain weight while eating even less, and whether you want to be feeding your babies formula with MSG, baby food with MSG, and snack and prepared foods with MSG.

Stay Tuned.
