Subject: Let’s Talk About MSG

Thank you for your continued support of Today's Dietitian. Below is information from one of our sponsors:

What have you heard about MSG?
Do you know the whole story? You’re likely familiar with a negative stigma that originated in the 1960s. And you may also know that MSG is simply sodium + glutamate, the most abundant amino acid in nature. But did you know that scientists, regulatory agencies, and public health organizations have verified that MSG is perfectly safe to consume and that the body doesn’t differentiate between glutamate in MSG and glutamate in foods like mushrooms and aged cheeses?

In fact, MSG can be used as a tool for sodium reduction, and to build umami (the fifth taste) into plant-based dishes.
Today’s Dietitian Spring Symposium is fast approaching, and we’ll be there to answer your questions, share resources, and offer an umami tasting experiment.

Come find us in the exhibit hall!
In the meantime, would you let us ask a few questions so that we can get to know you a little better? See below for a survey that should take no more than 5 minutes of your time (we promise).
