Monosodium Glutamate is a chemical added to many foods that stimulate the taste buds. Using MSG can make cheaper foods taste better. It magnifies the taste of foods. It makes the flavored chips and crackers spicer. It is in many fast foods. It gives that grilled taste to fried hamburgers. In chicken soup, you can get twice the taste with half the chicken. Unfortunately many people are sensitive to MSG. It is a neuroexciter.

Some people believe that it is dangerous for children. MSG poses an interesting health issue. So we will post some pro and con sites on MSG.
