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)
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!
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.
WARNING: Do not overuse.
