So, what is glutamate' monosodique?

Glutamate monosodium, commonly known as MSG, is a flavor enhancer that adds a savory taste to food. It is a white crystalline powder that is made up of glutamic acid and sodium ions. MSG is derived from natural sources such as seaweed and fermented soybeans. It is widely used in the food industry to enhance the umami flavor in dishes such as soups, sauces, and processed foods. Despite its controversial reputation, MSG is generally recognized as safe by regulatory bodies such as the FDA and is considered a common ingredient in many cuisines around the world.
