This is a great product, but I want to address some concern about this product.

It is much more expensive buying the little ones in the grocery store.

This is a great product, but I want to address some concern about this product.

Amid all this skepticism about MSG I felt I needed to say something. I will cite Wikipedia here -

[...]
---
What it is made from -

Monosodium glutamate was once predominantly made from wheat gluten, but is now mostly made from bacterial fermentation; it is acceptable for celiacs following a gluten-free diet.

Health concerns -

While many people believe that MSG is the cause of these symptoms, a statistical association has not been demonstrated under controlled conditions, even in studies with people who were convinced that they were sensitive to it.

In 1993, the FDA proposed adding the phrase "(contains glutamate)" to the common or usual names of certain protein hydrolysates that contain substantial amounts of glutamate. *(This change never went through because, in my opinion there was never enough substantial evidence to prove that MSG is harmful)*

In the 2004 version of his book, On Food and Cooking, food scientist Harold McGee states that "[after many studies], toxicologists have concluded that MSG is a harmless ingredient for most people, even in large amounts."
---

So there you have it; all of this MSG fuss is, for the most part, nonsense.

This product does exactly what it claims to do, it makes food (meat namely) taste better.

But like with any ingredient in a recipe, don't over do it, moderation is always a good idea (for example, you wouldn't use a handful of salt to make a small batch of cookies)

Happy eating!

Thank God they still make this stuff, the huge MSG scare that happened way back seems to have maintained its brainwash effect on people.
MSG was never actually proved to be harmful, but people went on such a nutso crazy about it (try searching "chinese restaurant syndrome" instead of MSG in google) that the FDA made everyone who puts it in everything label it. You can find the same basic components in food items like chicken stock and soy sauce.
Five stars for making good food even more delicious!

I was unable to purchase this product for a long time as no stores in my area carried it, so I was very happy to find it on Amazon. It really does make a difference in the flavor of foods. The size of the canister is a bit unwieldy and the holes rather too large so the stuff pours out too quickly-I had to buy herb shaker to cut the weight and dispensing hole s down to a comfortable size.

Westerners are so silly blaming MSG for all the problems they have. Just look at Japan, where this thing was discovered. After all these years using Ajinomoto (MSG), the nation still maintains a healthier population, who lives longer, has less health problems, and are generally thinner. All those westerners who blame ANYTHING for all their health problems, just stop eating too much of their own crap (pizza, McDonald's, etc., etc.). Just like anything else, if used judiciously, this thing is totally okay.

MSG (monosodium glutamate), which is the ingredient in Ac'cent has been around since the Japanese invented it about one hundred years ago. I am 61 years of age and my parents and grand-parents used it in place of salt for three generations now. Ac'cent or MSG has 60 per cent less sodium than table salt. I always fill my salt shaker with accent instead of salt. Japanese use MORE of this than any other ethnic group. Look at their longevity and health compared to westerners. My Grandmother who used this in EVERYTHING died at the age of 103 in 1990. Grandfather at 90. Parents both died in their late eighties. I have no health issues. Americans want to eat like hogs, do not excercise and then blame MSG for their ills. BALONEY ! ! ! I take vitamins and minerals, I excercise and I rarely go a day without Ac'cent since I sprinkle it on everything I eat. THANK GOD the maniacs didn't take this great product off the market. They DID succeed in taking cyclamates off the market. It was the BEST sugar substitute on earth. Saccharin was NEVER dangerous and the govt has now stopped making manufacturers put that erroneous cancer warning on the label. The Sugar lobby paid for EVERY study done on artificial sweeteners. They destroyed cyclamates spending a fortune to do so with false allegations. They spent BILLIONS against saccharin and all the others that came later, but they finally gave up. LONG LIVE MSG! it is the BEST flavor enhancer in the world!

This is a huge canister. It is too tall to put in my kitchen cupboards so I put some in a smaller seasoning shaker to make it easier to handle and so the shaker would fit in my cupboards and put this one on some shelves I have for things that don't fit in my cupboards. I love the flavor enhancement Accent gives food. I don't add very much. There really isn't any need to because even a small amount helps. It doesn't add to the saltiness in food either. I have never been afraid of using MSG because of the fact that you don't need to add a lot. This will probably last me quite awhile. But I will get it from here again. It was delivered rather quickly and well packaged. Thanks Amazon
