Indian Regulations on Trans-fats, MSG Influence Product Sales during COVID-19 Pandemic

The coronavirus pandemic has made individuals across the world increasingly health-conscious. Since August 2020, the Indian Government has been under scrutiny to finalize regulations to limit trans-fats in food products. Naturally, this has created ripple effects in the India monosodium glutamate (MSG) market, as even sodium glutamate is found to increase the risk of obesity, central nervous system disorder, and reproductive malfunctions in people.

Brands such as Papa John’s are gaining recognition during the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak, since it has removed monosodium glutamate (MSG) from its ranch dressing and pulled trans-fats from its garlic sauce. Companies in the India monosodium glutamate (MSG) market are taking cues from such trends and taking efforts to limit the use of MSG in its food products, as a high number of COVID-positive patients have existing comorbidities.
