Pizza is totally fine. So is MSG.
We launched this campaign to remind people that not only is MSG inherently found in some of our favorite toppings, it’s also pretty delicious. So, if people are OK with pizza, they should be OK with MSG too, right??
Toppings like tomatoes and parmesan naturally have sodium + glutamate molecules within them.
Those same sodium + glutamate molecules are what make up MSG found in a shaker.
MSG separates into sodium + glutamate and the body metabolizes it exactly as it would the same molecules from a tomato.
mg glutamate per 100 g portion
