So, what is natriumglutamat?

Natriumglutamat, also known as monosodium glutamate (MSG), is a flavor enhancer commonly used in Asian and other cuisines. It is a white crystalline powder with a distinctive savory taste, often described as umami, which is the fifth taste after sweet, sour, bitter, and salty. Natriumglutamat is naturally found in many foods, including tomatoes, mushrooms, and cheese. It is often added to processed foods, soups, and sauces to enhance their flavor. Despite some controversy surrounding its safety, natriumglutamat is generally recognized as safe by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and other regulatory agencies.
