Hello. Typically when it is added to a product the purpose is flavor enhancement. I have had people complain that they have reacted to it (Much as if it was an allergen) however I haven’t ever had a reaction myself. I have had people claim to react to it when it wasn’t used so I am somewhat of a skeptic. If you do your own experiment you will find that it does enhance flavors however in many cases I think it is over used, or not necessary.


Hello everyone
Hope you are doing well!
MSG is flavor enhancer actually, should be used in just lil qts cz overdoses are allergenic to some beings. It’s use is banned here in Pakistan due to it’s deliterious health effects.
On the otherhand if you are working on seasoning development it’s quite helpful in that case.

MSG It is used to highlight the flavor of foods.
Especially in the foreground when it is used in snack products, it is mainly used in recycled foods. Despite the smell of peroxide deterioration in the packaged sunflower seeds, this additive provides more consumption when the consumer starts to consume.


Mono sodium glutamate is taste enhancer, sometimes it naturally developed in food and some times intentionally add into a product to enhance flavour.
