Is long-term edible monosodium glutamate harmful to human body? Scientists have done research, MSG i

Monosodium glutamate has now become a necessary condiment for people to cook. In fact, the history of monosodium glutamate can be traced back to more than 100 years ago. From the emergence of monosodium glutamate to now becoming a necessary condiment for people to cook, monosodium glutamate has always been controversial.

The reason why Wujing is liked by people is that as long as a little monosodium glutamate is added in cooking, the taste of dishes will be very delicious. However, the reason why people dispute Wujing is that many people think that monosodium glutamate is a kind of chemical.

People have a doubt about MSG, it is possible that human beings have no good feelings for the food containing refined words.

There are many foods that contain saccharin, creamine and essence. You will think that refined food additives are chemical components that can cause harm to human health.

So does MSG really hurt the human body? Let's look for the answers below.

Monosodium glutamate is called sodium glutamate. The first country to find MSG is Japan. In 1988, at Tokyo University, Japan, sodium glutamate was found in kelp and extracted.

Because monosodium glutamate is an additive extracted from kelp, Professor Ikeda jumiao of Tokyo University put monosodium glutamate in the soup. To his surprise, the soup with monosodium glutamate was very delicious.

The way to extract monosodium glutamate was very simple at that time, that is, kelp was continuously boiled in water until the water evaporated. The crystal substance in the pot was sodium glutamate, which is often called monosodium glutamate.

Anyone who has studied chemistry knows that sodium glutamate is actually a derivative of glutamic acid. Glutamic acid is also an amino acid. Amino acid is a component of human protein synthesis.

There are more than 20 kinds of amino acids in the human body, and glutamic acid is one of them. We have a lot of glutamic acid in mushrooms and tomatoes in our daily life. Therefore, sodium glutamate has no special harm to human body.

With the progress of science and technology, human beings do not extract monosodium glutamate by evaporation as before, but first ferment starch, wheat, soybean and other pure natural substances. After fermentation, these natural substances will produce glutamic acid, and then add alkali to glutamic acid to form sodium glutamate.

The sodium glutamate made in this way will be decomposed into glutamic acid after entering the human body. As mentioned earlier, glutamic acid is an amino acid, which will become an essential element for protein synthesis in the human body.

Does frequent use of monosodium glutamate cause damage to human health?

In fact, it is not only China, but also the whole world that is very concerned about whether the extensive use of monosodium glutamate will cause damage to human health. Chinese scientists once did an experiment in which they fed mice with monosodium glutamate for up to three months.

Three months later, the scientists measured the health indicators of the mice, and found that the indicators of the mice who used a lot of monosodium glutamate were normal, and there was no poisoning.

The food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the World Health Organization (who) have also issued statements on many occasions, saying that MSG is not harmful to human body and is very safe to eat.

Recently, a lot of we media have said that although MSG is not harmful to human body, the high temperature generated by people when cooking will cause chemical changes in MSG, thus producing substances harmful to human body.

Through the experiment of scientists, only a small part of sodium glutamate will be changed into sodium pyroglutamate when it is heated for three hours. Sodium pyroglutamate has no taste enhancing effect of sodium glutamate and will not cause damage to human health.

Many restaurant chefs add monosodium glutamate when cooking, which can effectively avoid the change of sodium glutamate into sodium pyroglutamate, affecting the taste of the dishes.

Therefore, it is suggested that when you cook in daily life, you can also add MSG when the dishes are about to be out of the pot, so as to better play the role of MSG in fresh extraction.

Sodium glutamate contains sodium, sodium chloride in salt. Although sodium ion is necessary for human beings, excessive intake of sodium ions will also harm human body.

Some people are very restrained in salt intake in life, in fact, we can also appropriately control the monosodium glutamate intake, after all, salt and monosodium glutamate contain a lot of sodium ions.
