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!

Cooking for your significant other's parents and want to impress them? Try Accent. It's simply the best MSG there is.

Flavor enhancer? Doesn't tell the whole story.

If you're whipping up some hamburger helper to impress your lady's old man, this is the stuff for you. Sprinkle an appropriate amount on the beef when sautéing and he'll love it so much, he'll give the dowry to you after dessert.

Trust me.

WARNING: Do not overuse.

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

Accent is another product from days past. MSG has been much maligned in recent years, but I for one, must agree with science. If you do not have a sensitivity to MSG, next to salt, it is a great tastes enhancer for any savory recipe. Try it, if took do not have a health problem or sensitivity to Accent's main ingredient.

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.

This is HUGE, it will take you most of your lifetime to use all of this! MSG is not the "devil" like it was made out to be for years but a little goes a long way, using a 1/4 teaspoon in a pan of chicken wakes it up and makes it oh so much more flavorful.

I love this addition to my flavoring arsenal. Though some people have trouble with MSG, most don't, and I'm happy to have this available. It is a natural ingredient found in seaweed (if I'm remembering correctly) and is 60 percent lower in sodium than salt. This sizeable 2 lb. canister will last me a long time.
