So, what is glutammato monosodico?

Glutammato monosodico, also known as monosodium glutamate or MSG, is a flavor enhancer commonly used in Asian cuisine. It is a white crystalline powder that is soluble in water and has a savory, umami taste. MSG is derived from the amino acid glutamic acid, which occurs naturally in many foods, including tomatoes, cheese, and mushrooms. It is often added to processed foods to enhance their flavor and is considered safe for consumption by most people. However, some individuals may have a sensitivity to MSG and experience symptoms such as headache, flushing, and sweating.
