If you love MSG, go to MickeyD’s in the morning. Eleven out of its twenty-three breakfast items boast monosodium glutamate, that quintessential 80’s food criminal, including Sausage McMuffin

with Egg, Hotcakes and Sausage, and Sausage McGriddles


A positive correlation seems to exists between MSG presence and McDonald’s sausage-based items.

Two other non-breakfast items, Chicken Selects Premium Breast Strips and Creamy Ranch Sauce are listed as containing the glutamic acid.

A small portion of the population is MSG intolerant and can develop one or more of the following symptoms: burning sensations, rapid heartbeat, headache, nausea, numbness in the back of the neck, radiating to the arms and back, violent dreams, etc. etc.

And with the dollar menu, getting high with The Ronald is cheaper than ever!
