Monosodium glutamate is a sodium salt of glutamic acid which is used in the food industry as a flavor enhancer. MSG is found in breast milk and in many protein-rich foods (cheese, mushrooms, soy bean sauce, and seaweed) and is produced during the metabolism process of all living beings. In 1909 it was discovered that this substance could be used to intensify flavors and refine dishes. Since then, MSG is one of the most controlled nutritional products of the food industry and safe for consumption.
