Restaurants don’t want to get a bad rap by putting monosodium glutamate (MSG) on their ingredient or allergen statements, so they have found another way to secretly add this potent flavor enhancer to your pizza, without the average customer realizing it.
Instead of letting you know that they are putting MSG in your pizza, they are using an FDA loophole to sneak processed free glutamic acid into your food, which has the same effect as MSG – all without warning you.
They simply use other forms of free glutamic acid (such as Hydrolyzed Soy Protein, Yeast Extract, etc), which is the main component of MSG. This allows them to have “clean labels” and deceive us into believing their product contains no MSG – when it actually does!
Why do they have to hide this stuff in your pizza?! Isn’t it time for these restaurants to take responsibility and tell us what we are eating?
