Would microwaving 1 pound of frozen broccoli 14 minutes to a "mush" like consistency be a problem from a free glutamic acid perspective?

Thanks,

Your broccoli may contain free glutamate as it came fresh from the grower. They use Hydrolyzed protein Fertilizer. It doesn't even have to be cooked. I have always ate a few small pieces raw.
Microwave? Unsafe for any time-destroys the food. The mushier it is the more degraded it is.
Steam it in a steamer basket until tender and no longer.

We've never had a problem with broccoli. If you are considering Domino's pizza I think you will be fine with Broccoli no matter what you do to it, short of adding a cheese sauce :-)
