Is MSG bad for you? Debunking a long-running food myth (video)
Date:8/25/2014

WASHINGTON, Aug. 25, 2014 Few ingredients come with as much baggage as monosodium glutamate. More commonly known as MSG, the compound has had a bad reputation for nearly 50 years, so we at Reactions felt it was time to clear its name. In this week's video, we debunk MSG myths and explain why the scientific consensus is that this flavor enhancer, known for its savory umami flavor, is perfectly safe for the vast majority of people. The video is available at: http://youtu.be/VJw8r_YWJ9k.

For more on MSG's undeserved reputation, check out this great infographic from our friends at Compound Interest: http://www.compoundchem.com/2014/08/25/msg.
