So, what is monosodium glutamate e621?

Monosodium glutamate (MSG), also known as E621, is a flavor enhancer commonly used in processed foods. It is a salt of glutamic acid, an amino acid found naturally in many foods. MSG is often added to foods to improve their taste and make them more savory, umami, and delicious. While some people are sensitive to MSG and may experience adverse reactions, most people can safely consume it in moderate amounts. MSG is popular in many cuisines around the world, particularly in Asian dishes such as ramen, stir-fry, and sushi.
