MSG, or monosodium glutamate is the sodium salt of glutamic acid, and is one of the most abundant naturally occurring non-essential amino acids.
MSG has become a huge problem in the typical diet as it is now widely used in manufacturing food to provide flavour and other benefits. The bottom line however is that simply put, MSG is bad for you.
The growing concern surrounding MSG is that recent reports are suggesting that it can cause serious health problems and side effects over time. These health issues can include but are not limited to migraines, food allergies in children, obesity and asthma.
At Naturally Savvy, we remain firmly committed to keeping you well informed on the rise of MSG and hope to provide you with enough resources to make conscious and healthy decisions for you and your family.
