Glutamate: The Purest Taste of Umami provides information about the role glutamate plays in food and in our bodies, and discusses MSG safety and benefits.
Since its discovery in 1908, monosodium glutamate has been used safely and effectively in food. A great deal of scientific research has been undertaken into its role and safety. This research, which has been reviewed by scientists and regulators around the world including the US Food & Drug Administration, demonstrates that monosodium glutamate (MSG) is safe for everyone.
