And the last statement is rather dubious, because monosodium glutamate is a completely natural substance, a flavor enhancer that can be found in the products we are used to.
For example, 100 g of potatoes contains approximately 120 mg of glutamate. In 100 g of chicken, it is slightly less – about 40 mg. Thus, this flavor enhancer can be found in both plant and animal foods.
Note that scientists have already been studying monosodium glutamate. As a result, its harmfulness could not be confirmed. Moreover, WHO has included it in the list of safe food additives.
