What is MSG:

MSG is short for monosodium glutamate.

It is a common food additive that is used to enhance flavor. It has the e-number E621.

MSG is derived from the amino acid glutamate, or glutamic acid, which is one of the most abundant amino acids in nature.

Glutamate is one of the non-essential amino acids, meaning that the human body is able to produce it. It serves various functions in the human body, and is found in virtually all foods.


This photo shows the chemical structure of MSG:

As the name implies, monosodium glutamate (MSG) is the product of sodium (Na) and glutamate, known as a sodium salt.

The glutamate in MSG is made via fermentation of starches, but there is no chemical difference between glutamate in MSG and glutamate in natural foods.

However, glutamate in MSG may be easier for the body to access, because it isn't bound inside big protein molecules that need to be broken down.

MSG enhances the savory or meaty umami flavor of foods. Umami is the fifth basic taste that humans sense, along with salty, sour, bitter and sweet.

It is popular in Asian cooking, and is used in all sorts of processed foods in Western countries.

The average daily intake is around 0.55-0.58 grams in the US and UK, and 1.2-1.7 grams in Japan and Korea.
