Taking extreme taste to the next level

..Remember, all the food marketing companies out there are going to try to get you hooked on even more intense flavors and tastes, because they have to outdo the previous batch of food products. As peoples' senses become numb, they need even more stimulation to get excited and take notice of foods. That's why we now have "extreme nachos" loaded with MSG, a chemical taste enhancer that has harmful effects on the nervous system.
We see MSG in so many foods because people no longer have the sensory acuity to even notice tastes. They have to use these artificial chemicals to get peoples' tongues to register anything. And this is why we even see these chemicals used in natural food products. Check the ingredient labels on those foods, and you'll find autolyzed yeast extract, hydrolyzed vegetable protein and other additives. These are all different forms of monosodium glutamate, or chemical taste enhancers, designed to get your tongue to notice you're eating something. And they're only used because you've blown away your sense of taste via taste inflation.

Patrick, I noticed "taste inflation" when I worked at Thomas J.Lipton - a HUGE user of MSG and HVP. The taste testers were often employees. After a while the junk started to taste normal to them. That is why their products were so salty and processed - they think that is normal. Lipton now goes by the name Unilever. It is Lipton and Unilever I was thinking of when I came up with the term "unfood". They are the poster children for things like powdered lemon flavor and boullion cubes, and powdered cheese. Things that have been turned into "Unfood".
