Despite some bad press in the past, MSG is not considered to an allergen or in any way unhealthy. Glutamic acid occurs naturally in umami-rich foods like tomatoes, mushrooms, and cheese. This convenient granular form is an easy way to kick up the rich, savory flavors of soups and stews, vegetable dishes, and Asian sauces. Ingredients: Monosodium glutamate.
