MSG (Flavor Enhancer 621)

MSG (Flavor Enhancer 621)

Monosodium Glutamate (MSG) is a flavor enhancer that has been widely used for roughly 100 years.


It’s a flavor enhancer derived from L-glutamic acid, which is naturally present in many foods. L-glutamic acid is a nonessential amino acid, meaning that your body can produce it by itself and doesn’t need to get it from food.


MSG has a specific taste known as umami — the fifth basic taste alongside sweet, sour, salty, and bitter. Umami has a meaty flavor that refers to the presence of proteins in food.


How to use: MSG can be added during cooking, salt can be substitued with it, generally 1/2-1 tsp is enough for approximately 500g meat or 4-6 serves of vegetables. Can be sprinkled after cooking to achieve the flavour you desire.
