MSG stands for Monosodium Glutamate, also known as sodium glutamate.  It is a sodium salt of glutamic acid, a naturally occurring non-essential amino acid.  It is used as a food additive and is commonly marketed as a flavour enhancer. It has the HS code 29224220 and the E number E621.

Sodium glutamate E621 comes in the form of white crystalline powder, and it’s very similar to salt and sugar. It can also be found in liquid form. Sodium glutamate E621 is one of the most harmful ingredients we consume on a regular basis, without being aware of it.

It is a common additive found in almost all manufactured foods.  It has the taste of meat soup and can be added to any food to enhance the flavor. Sodium glutamate intake causes increased cravings, and leads to overeating and obesity.

It stimulates the brain cells in much the same way as drugs do thus creating a feeling of addiction. It’s easily absorbed in the blood and brain causing a change in the genes in charge of the sense of taste.

As we already mentioned, this food additive is used in many popular food products including all sausages, hot dogs, chips, prepared soups, canned food, beer and many more. The allowed daily dose for adults is 1.5 grams, and for children less than half a gram.

A fact worth mentioning is that over 200 thousand tons of this additive are used annually in the world. The common symptoms of E621 overdose include dizziness, migraine, visual disturbances, hormonal imbalance, nausea, weakness, dizziness, chest pain, and more. It’s also known as Chinese restaurant syndrome.

It was first discovered in 1907 in Japan by scientist Ikeda Kikunae, who found that the substance improves the taste of food, especially the taste and aroma of canned, fast and frozen food.

This common food additive has gained a lot of popularity over the years and today it accounts for great sales of food in America.

Even though it improves the taste and aroma of food products, sodium glutamate also brings on numerous side effects. For one thing it affects the receptors of your tongue making food tastier than it actually is. That’s why it makes people addicted to processed food like chips, sweets, ready-made meals and more.

Moreover, study mice that were given sodium glutamate in food lost their vision.
