Monster Munch

Okay.. random thought time...
I enjoyed eating Monster Munch as a snack so much last night.. and I admit..tonight that I actually said (in my mind).. what is in this??.. I feel I'm addicted.

I checked it out anyway. It seems Monster Munch really isn't so bad. not too many calories sugars etc.. and .. well it is corn right..?
Well yes.. but then I dug a little deeper and stumbled across this helpful little site, and found out it contains what's known as Disodium 5-ribonucleotide, which is apparently quite harmful, and banned in Australia.
looking further it shows a few other snacks ( walkers crisps)Disodium 5-ribonucleotide is also found in..
all those tasty little snacks I like..

I wonder.. how would they taste without it?
