Caption: Monosodium glutamate (MSG) molecule, illustration. MSG is a food additive that acts as a flavour enhancer. It is the sodium salt of the amino acid glutamic acid. It is used to flavour foods with the taste of umami, the savoury fifth flavour that is conferred by free L-glutamate and commonly found in mushrooms, meat and soy sauce.
