S4 E10 – Is MSG not actually bad for you?
There’s a load of negative stigma attached to the consumption of MSG (Monosodium Glutomate) which is a naturally occurring flavour enhancer that’s usually used in take-away foods. But what if we were to tell you it’s not actually bad for you? In this episode the guys delve into the subject and see if they can taste the difference between a normal dish and one where MSG has been added.
Ben smirking on his own at the idea that no one can make macarons 😂
My family is all from Norwich and the end meal is “tea” not dinner.
I misread tsp as cup while adding salt to cake. My mother cooked a roast for four days and it did not turn into charcoal, it turned into Jello and smoked out the house.
Science museum teacher here, and with the 50th anniversary of the moon landing, I have been talking lots of space food.
I wonder about the future of re-hydratable freeze dried foods/ foods that we thought would be so futuristic but really haven’t come to pass.
It might only be something I’ve caught on to recently, but I have noticed more and more restaurants having a “shareable” dish on their menu. I live in the second largest city in Denmark, Århus, which definately has some great food places.
It seems like a decent idea when done right. Stuff like a choppingboard with a couple of small snacks or even an entire dish that works well for sharing. I think it’s great for food as a social construct and an experience you can share with someone. However, it seems like the scope of these dishes are a little limited from what I’ve seen.
I might be the only one who loves the VR series. Thought it was really fascinating and the whole thing was funny.
I think it’s interesting when you brought up the idea about older food processes and methods becoming trendy again because my mind immediately went to foods and cookbooks from the 1950s and the … deplorable party dishes they had (like meat and gelatin combinations 🤢). I pray that’s not the next trend.
My friend group has certainly hosted a few aspic-centric dinner parties…
I loved the VR series too. Honestly, I’d like to see more of that. I miss comment of the week as well.
I food trend I can’t wait to be over is more about styling: that overfilled, dripping down the sides, puddling on the table messiness that seems to be everywhere. I’m pretty sure it’s just a fad, but I hate it and hope it disappears soon.
A series or book about pickling, fermenting and curing would be really cool.
I would love you guys to do an episode on food stigmas…like MSG, preservatives, or flash frozen foods. Is it actually harmful or did one “pop science” article ruin it for all of us? Keep up the good work boys 🙂
