So, what is мононатриев глутамат?

Мононатриев глутамат, also known as monosodium glutamate (MSG), is a flavor enhancer commonly used in Asian cuisine. It is a salt form of glutamic acid that can be found naturally in some foods such as tomatoes and seaweed. MSG is a white crystalline powder with a savory umami taste that stimulates the taste buds, making food more flavorful. Despite concerns about its safety, numerous studies have shown that MSG is safe for consumption in normal amounts and does not cause adverse health effects. MSG is often added to soups, sauces, snacks, and processed meats to enhance their taste.
