What is mushroom seasoning?
Love Earth mushroom seasoning is a healthy substitute for artificial food seasonings and salt. It is made from only 3 ingredients - Shiitake mushroom powder, salt, and mushroom extract, where it contains a rich amount of natural glutamate from the mushroom to enhance the taste of your dish!
How is it made? The process is simple - the fresh shiitake mushroom is the first sun-dried, after turning it into powder, it is then mixed with salt and mushroom extract to form the end product you see in the bottle!
What about MSG?
As we talk about seasoning, MSG may come into your mind. Here’s why you may want to think twice before using it. MSG is a simple structure that consists of glutamate and sodium, where glutamate is an amino acid that plays an important role in our brain function. Everything sounds just fine - But why is it a concern? Glutamate in MSG is not bound to protein, which means it can be absorbed into your circulation very quickly - Unlike how most glutamate exists as part of the protein in whole foods. Therefore, it can be an excitotoxin when there is too much glutamate in your brain, causing overstimulation of your nerve cells.
Although MSG is labeled as safe by the FDA, and it is surrounded by tons of controversy - Let’s not forget that whole food should be what we always prioritize in our diet. You won't want to risk your health when you can actually choose a safer and more nutritious alternative!
