Facts about Monosodium Glutamate (MSG)


Did you know that Monosodium Glutamate (MSG) is a food additive used as flavor enhancer? MSG is commonly used in fast foods, snacks, canned, and frozen foods where it restores or enhances flavors that processing has damaged or destroyed.

MSG's enhancement of flavor encourages appetite, and has many business advantages for the food industry, including its cheapness and availability. However, disadvantages are all on the consumers' side and relate to health fears.

The glutamate industry is fully aware of the harmful effects of MSG, that it is a toxic substance, which can cause diabetes, adrenal gland malfunction, seizures, high blood pressure, excessive weight gain, stroke and other health problems.The symptoms which MSG is suspected of causing include headaches, dry mouth, flushing, tightening of facial muscles, numbness, tingling, chest pain, heart palpitations, and nausea.

Hence, this is why Algourmet is committed not to use any MSG in our products. Our meals are 100% made with natural and nutritional ingredients!
