The Story of
In the 1960s, a wave of anti‐Asian xenophobia created a nationwide panic about MSG. That baseless fear had an immediate impact on a vulnerable group of Americans: Chinese restaurant owners.
To survive the backlash, they were forced to prominently display “No MSG” signs on menus and storefront. Soon, other restaurants and food products adopted that same misleading symbol. Now decades later, Americans still lack the understanding and appreciation of a beloved seasoning that’s enjoyed in countries around the world.
