    Monosodium glutamate

    Request price

    Monosodium glutamate, also known as MSG, is the sodium salt of glutamic acid, one of the most abundantly occurring amino acids.

    MSG is obtained by fermentation of starch, sugar cane, sugar beets, or molasses, but it naturally is present in seaweed broth, but also in many vegetables, cheeses, and mushrooms.

    Technical aspects

    MSG contains a single amino acid from glutamic acid and is not considered crude protein content. It is insoluble, and not hygroscopic in common organic solvents either. Responds well to processing, as it does not decompose when cooked. In the presence of sugar, it changes its color to brown when high temperatures are also applied.

    It is usually available as a monohydrate, a white crystalline powder, odorless and soluble in water.

    Shelf life

    The shelf life of Monosodium Glutamate 25 kg is 3 years. Product should be stored in a cool, dry place.


    Foodcom supplies its Business Partners with Monosodium Glutamate in 25 kg packs.


    It’s a profoundly popular product because of its ability to elicit a taste “umami”, considered being the fifth taste. Therefore it has found substantial application in the food industry, especially in meats, soups, baked goods, seasonings, and other products in order to enhance its flavors
