A laboratory created food additive used to enhance the flavor of food. Mono sodium glutamate is the full name.
MSG is passed off as a “natural” and harmless food additive that can be used instead of salt to enhance the flavor of food. MSG or monosodium glutamate is far from natural, it’s lab created and can cause an array of health problems.
Adverse reactions include but not limited to:
• Heart Palpitations
• Chest Pain
I personally am subject to migraine headaches upon consuming this substance in foods. I try to avoid MSG but it is tricky sometimes because manufacturers are not labeling MSG only as Monosodium glutamate anymore. Some of the other names for MSG in our food are:
Monopotassium Glutamate Monosodium Glutamate
