Monosodium Glutamate is the salt version of glutamic acid.
Glutamic acid is one of a chain of 20 amino acids that make up a protein molecule.
It is a non-essential amino acid, which means that the body produces what is needed and we don't need to make it up in our diet.
Monosodium Glutamate is used extensively in Japanese cooking and in Chinese restaurant food. MSG is a very popular seasoning in North America, where it is sold under the brand name Accent. Throughout the food industry, MSG is becoming an increasingly popular way to add flavor to packaged foods such as soups, sauces, seasonings, and instant snacks.
