So, what is monoglutamate de sodium?

Monosodium glutamate (MSG), also known as monoglutamate de sodium in French, is a flavor enhancer commonly used in Asian cuisine. This white crystalline powder is derived from glutamic acid, a naturally occurring amino acid found in many foods. MSG is known for its ability to enhance the umami flavor of food, which is described as a savory, meaty taste. Despite some controversy surrounding its safety, MSG is generally recognized as safe by regulatory agencies when used in normal amounts. MSG is often used in dishes such as soups, stir-fries, and marinades to add depth and richness of flavor.
