Monosodium Glutamate

Monosodium Glutamate, also known as MSG, is a flavor enhancer and a food preservative. A review of scientific data sponsored by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) on glutamate safety in 1995 acknowledges that some consumers of MSG experience reactions to MSG known as MSG symptom complex. Symptoms may include:
  • Headache
  • Flushing
  • Sweating
  • Sense of facial pressure or tightness
  • Numbness, tingling or burning in or around the mouth
  • Chest pain
  • Shortness of breath
