So, what is msg?

Monosodium glutamate (MSG) is a flavor enhancer commonly used in many types of cuisine, particularly in Asian cooking. It is made from the sodium salt of glutamic acid, an amino acid found naturally in many foods such as tomatoes, Parmesan cheese, and mushrooms. MSG is a white crystalline powder that dissolves easily in water, adding a savory or umami flavor to dishes. Despite some misconceptions about its safety, MSG is generally recognized as safe by regulatory agencies worldwide and is widely used in the food industry. It is a popular ingredient in soups, stews, sauces, and snacks, adding a savory depth of flavor to a variety of dishes.
