Mental floss: misconceptions about food #2


Elliot Morgan kills some food myths and explains why they are simply that, myths. MSG, or monosodium glutamate, can be found in soy sauce and it does not pose a risk to health, unless eaten too much. Twinkies do expire: after 45 days. Tomatoes are fruits, but the food chefs want us to look at them as vegetables.

Also, should you wash the chicken before you bake it? Better not, simply put it in the oven: the hairs and any bacteria that might be on that chicken will be burned out.

And, white chocolate is not chocolate. I knew THAT. Check the video from above for more myths. Prepare to have your world shaken.
