What is MSG? Technically, Monosodium glutamate (MSG) is the sodium salt of glutamic acid. and a form of glutamate. Amino acids are naturally occurring in our bodies and once linked up, they form proteins. Glutamate is a naturally occurring amino acid that is found in nearly all foods, especially high protein foods such as dairy products, meat and fish and in many vegetables. Foods often used for their flavouring properties, such as mushrooms and tomatoes, have high levels of naturally occurring glutamate and here is the Benefit of MSG
MSG is safe for people of all ages, including children. There is no scientific evidence to suggest otherwise. MSG is approved by the following organizations:
Doctor Dharini says free Glutamate is even found in breast milk .Glutamic acid metabolized during digestive absorption.. She also said that its not true that MSG has any kind of toxic or causative role in food allergies and MSG has 1/3 of sodium in comparison to normal salt also Umami is a marker of protein nutrition
Chef Vinod kumar said Many dried foodstuffs like tomatoes, mushroom, etc., are high in umami also he said how sprinkling exact amount of Ajinomoto entirely change the taste more delicious.. Paneer 65 was made by him to explore the umami taste.. and it really changed the taste of paneer 65 awesome!!!!!..
What i learnt from the seminar is MSG helps you get a meaty flavour (umami) by being totally vegetarian! Although a little amount of Ajinomoto imparts savor as fifth of the basic tastes, doctors say that its overuse may lead to health problems in the long run. Ajinomoto is an umami seasoning.I really never knew that Ajinomoto is pure vegetarian and made with simple natural processes So I am damm sure that Ajinomoto is safe to eat . Not regularly but generally can be used !!!!!! Eat Healthy Live Healthy !!!!
