What is M.S.G?
M.S.G is Monosodium glutamate. It has no taste of it's own but when added to other foods it brings out the natural taste. The food additive number for M.S.G is 621.It damages the hypothalamic regulation of appetite to the brain and is an addictive additive that encourages us to continue eating. It is also proven to cause headaches, migraines, eyesight problems, long term memory loss and infertility. What many people don't realise is there are other additives used that have similar effects as M.S.G, these are free glutamates. Their numbers are 620, 623, 624, 625, 627, 631 and 635.When a product has NO M.S.G written on, it will most likely have one of the above numbers in it. Glutamates occur naturally in foods and cause no health risk when consumed in their natural state, it is when they are processed that they become free glutamates.
