MSG, also known as monosodium glutamate, a so-called Chinese salt, is a frequently used flavor enhancer. Taste stimulates the nerves to make the food taste better. This effect arouses the desire to eat more and more often. Its main purpose is to make sure that the food contained in it is delicious and coded as a nutrient that is frequently consumed in our brains regardless of the type of food. The short code is E621.
One of the reasons it is used as an additive is its faster dissolution than glutamic acid. These properties make mono- sodium glutamate commercially popular.
There is no restriction on the use of mono sodium glutamate in our country. In addition, the American Food and Drug Organization (FDA) stated that mono sodium glutamate is safe for most people when used in certain amounts, but allergic reactions in people with sensitivity to mono sodium glutamate, especially in asthma patients. However, long-term use of mono-sodium glutamate has been shown to trigger neurodegenerative diseases, metabolic diseases such as obesity and diabetes.
As a result, it is argued that mono-sodium glutamate may have harmful effects and, since it has not been proven to be harmless, it has caused drawbacks in its use.
