Monosodium glutamate

Monosodium glutamate(MSG), CAS 142-47-2, chemical formula C5H8NO4Na, molecular weight 187.127 g/mol.

The main component of MSG is the sodium salt of glutamic acid, usually white crystal or powder, odorless and stable to light. It can stimulate the taste buds and increase the freshness of food, especially meat and vegetables, and is often added to soups and meat products. Its direct nutritional value to the human body is small, but the glutamic acid it provides can combine with blood ammonia to play a detoxifying effect, and is used clinically in the treatment of patients in liver coma.

The initial industrial production of MSG in China was based on gluten or soybean meal as raw material, and MSG was produced by acid hydrolysis. With the progress of science and the application of microbial technology in the food industry, MSG production has been revolutionized. Since 1965, most of the MSG industry in China has adopted the fermentation method for production.

The main producers of MSG are as follows.
