So, what is e624?

E624, also known as Monoammonium glutamate, is a food additive commonly used to enhance the flavor of savory dishes. It is made by combining glutamic acid, an amino acid found naturally in many foods, with ammonia. E624 has a slightly salty and umami taste, which makes it a popular ingredient in processed foods like snacks, soups, and sauces. While generally recognized as safe by regulatory bodies, some people may be sensitive to E624 and experience reactions such as headaches or nausea. As with all food additives, it's important to use E624 in moderation and read labels carefully to ensure you're not consuming too much.
