Monosodium Glutamate is a traditional ingredient in oriental cooking, used as a flavor enhancer in food, and so in our instant noodles. Like all instant noodles available for sale, at the local or international market, our instant noodles contain Monosodium glutamate. FDA considers the addition of MSG to foods to be generally recognized as safe (GRAS).
Glutamic acid is naturally present in our bodies, and in many foods and food additives. It plays a critical role for its own cellular function but is not considered as an essential nutrient for humans because the body can create it from simpler compounds. It is an intermediate product of the oxidation of simple sugars.
Palm oil is the only oil that has no taste and no trans-fat. To avoid trans-fat contained in partially hydrogenated oils, we are using palm oil which contains almost no trans-fat and is healthier. Moreover, according to scientists, and studies made on trans-fat, when naturally present in food, and not added, it is healthy.
