east asian people: here is msg, its a kind of salt that tastes good
white people: hmm, this is bad, for some reason
@dankwraith thinking about the fact that scientific studies had to be done to conclude that MSG isn't bad for you and that people still act like it is anyway
@dankwraith it's weird that the colloquial English name for MSG is literally just the shortened version of the full word of the chemical compounds.
@dankwraith and ofc it's only bad when it's in asian food even tho it's widely used in the west as well at this point but no one cares about it when it's in our food
also it's somehow only bad when it is added and not naturally in food like cheese, tomatoes, soy sauce and some sea weed
