Monosodium glutamate, also known as monosodium glutamate, is a modern condiment made from grain using a method of microbial fermentation. The main ingredient is sodium glutamate.

Sodium glutamate (C5H8NO4Na), also known as sodium glutamate. Glutamate is a kind of amino acid and it is also the final decomposition product of the protein. Sodium glutamate is a sodium salt of an amino acid. It is a colorless, odorless crystal that melts at 232°C. Sodium glutamate is very water-soluble and has a solubility of 74 g at 20°C (ie, up to 74 g of sodium glutamate in 100 ml of water at 20°C).

It is important to note that if monosodium glutamate is used at high temperatures above 100°C, scientists have shown that monosodium glutamate produces only pyroglutamic acid sodium at 100°C for half an hour, with little effect on the human body. According to reports in the literature, sodium pyroglutamate is harmless to the human body. Also, if in an alkaline environment, monosodium glutamate will react chemically to produce a substance called disodium glutamate. So use and store it properly.
