Be ready to surprise yourself! One of the most dangerous foods we consume every single day is not the sugar, nor the salt. In fact, right know we are talking about the toxin which is known as monosodium glutamate E621.
In order to intensify the taste of the food we are eating in the restaurants, they use this additive that makes the taste stronger than it is.
Furthermore, it is something between salt and sugar, thus it looks like powder of white crystals. It has the taste of meat soup, when it is in watery condition.
Why we overeat ourselves sometimes? Well, the answer is this thing. It increases the appetite, thus our wish to stop eating disappears.
In addition this is what happens actually. This additive activates the brain cells, so has similar effect to the body as some drugs and can access any part of the body with ease, changing the genes that are responsible for a person’s taste.
Where can appear? In all food we consume on daily base. In hot-dogs, salami, crisps, beer, soup, cans etc.
According to statistics, 200.000 tons of potassium glutamate are made all around the world in one year. Migraine, vertigo, hormonal imbalance, visual impairment, nausea, weakness, chest pain and a lot of diseases may occur if you overuse this additive.
Ikeda Kikunae, from Japan, discovered this toxin in the year of 1907. He made some experiments that confirmed the fact that it truly makes stronger the taste of the food.
This means the same about the frozen and junk food, not just the fresh one. As time passed, this ingredient gained its popularity mostly in the USA.
When some experiments were done by giving lab mice the E621, they went completely blind after some time. This compound attacks the tongue receptors, so after some time of consuming it continuously, the food perception changes, it worsens.
A lot of food companies are profitable because of E621. Allegedly, they make great and tasty food with low costs. In order to protect yourself and your family, always be careful about what you are buying and read the components of every food you take.
