Why [not] MSG?
I know what you’re thinking: why would you use MSG in your fry mix? Isn’t it bad for you? I thought you studied nutrition, Kristen!!
Ok, breathe. It’s ok, I promise. Not all of our mixes do or will contain MSG, but there are some whose flavor is improved by the addition of that umami element.
We actually eat a lot of foods with MSG (monosodium glutamate) in them, and while they’re not always healthful foods, the FDA considers MSG itself to be generally safe. There is a question of whether there may be some risk to consuming it if you have neurological disorders or are prone to headaches. It is also a substance that, as a flavor enhancer, makes you want to eat more of it. While I believe that my fry mix is a healthful product, it is important that you make sure you are incorporating it into a healthful diet and lifestyle. As a biohacker, I recommend that you try it and see for yourself whether you feel any adverse effects.
Now, let me ask you a question: Did you know that even though it is a crucial ingredient in many cultures’ recipes and that [mostly] Western fear of MSG is rooted in anti-Asian sentiment and racism? Please check out this video about the complicated history of MSG so that you can make the most informed decision possible. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sm8Yx-gWlMs
It’s important to me not only to feed people delicious food but to also educate them about what they do and don’t consume. I hope you’ll try and enjoy all of our delicious flavors!
