I have read some disturbing things about it since I first wrote this review, but I use so little of it, I won't worry more than I do about bicycling in my city's air pollution, having moderate alcohol, occasional second-hand smoke, constant noise pollution, NSAIDs, fluoride in water, cell phone radiation, etc.
"Umami" flavorings are currently trendy and expensive -- a small tube for $3 at Trader Joe's -- but to me it's just MSG by another name.
The acronym is ugly, "MSG". Sounds like LSD or DDT maybe.
But using table salt is "adding NaCl" to one's food; sounds bad put that way.
Wine has sulfites, caffeine is "a CNS stimulant of the methylxanthine class".
Anything with the word "sodium" is worth scrutinizing, and I'm glad I've become aware of what I put in my body.
Anyway I've read that MSG is in corn, beets, seaweed, tomatoes and quite a few foods, so even if not listed explicitly, it occurs naturally. For me, a little added now and then works fine.
Unlike what is to be believed from the media, MSG isn't Satan's salt. The bad rap of MSG came from a 1960's smear campaign against Chinese food. In a culinary setting, MSG will not kill your brain cells. This is a flavor enhancer we are talking about, not methamphetamine. Monosodium glutamate doesn't pass the blood-brain barrier and animal brain damage was caused by injecting ludicrous doses directly into the veins of rats. If you are not injecting 50g of it into your bloodstream, you only need to worry about that it will add salt to your diet (It is a sodium salt.).
Between the low price and the small amount you need for cooking, this is well worth the purchase. It will probably take me several years to use the whole pound.
I decided I wanted to start experimenting with MSG, so I went for this one. Sprinkle some on your meats, sprinkle some on your veggies, it just makes all flavors POP!
I'm going to buy my second bag soon!

The basic taste were always seen as sweet, bitter, salty, and sour but in the early years of the 20th century...1908, a Japanese scientist proposed, and later proved the existence of a 5 th taste called umami.
Recently the rest of the world has finally recognized it for it's value as the 5th real taste.
This seems to be a good price and is used less sparingly than salt.......I love it.
They have a lot of seasoning products, they are so good I would use the beef(red package) and chicken(green package) seasoning on my popcorn instead of salt. I could not find them here in Canada but I found the common one: this.
I am not giving 5 starts because the flavor is different. You can still feel the "saltiness" and umami, but it goes to another direction than the one I was expecting.
Since you can get monosodium glutamate from different sources and different procedures, I think that might be the reason, since this one is made of Corn in USA.
It is not bad, it is just different.
Don't be racist— use MSG in your food! It's the secret ingredient that makes savoury dishes taste more like themselves.
It is especially good dusted liberally 50/50 with salt on a beef roast or a steak and let to sit for 20 minutes before cooking.
