Now we all pay attention to the taste and flavor of food. When cooking, we not only need fresh raw materials, but also need all kinds of seasonings to make the food delicious. In many condiments, such as soy sauce and soy sauce, chicken essence and MSG are very similar, only one word difference, but in fact, its taste and function are very different. Today, let's talk about the difference between chicken essence and monosodium glutamate. Is it harmful to human body?

monosodium glutamate

In fact, monosodium glutamate is a kind of condiment made from grains as raw materials and refined by microbial fermentation. Its main ingredient is sodium glutamate. Some people think that monosodium glutamate is made from chemical industry. In fact, this statement is not very accurate. Monosodium glutamate is a kind of natural food made from rice, jade rice and other grains after fermentation, It's not what we call chemical synthesis. So as long as we eat MSG properly, it will not cause harm to our body. At this point, we may wonder "why some people say that eating monosodium glutamate will affect health.". In fact, moderate eating will not cause harm to health, only in the case of excessive.

This is because when you eat sodium glutamate in your stomach, it reacts with stomach acid to produce glutamic acid and sodium chloride. Sodium chloride is often eat salt, eat more MSG also means more salt intake. Eating too much salt can lead to a series of chronic diseases such as hypertension.

Chicken essence

It is a kind of compound seasoning, which is made of monosodium glutamate and edible salt as the main raw materials, chicken bone powder or its concentrated extract, flavoring nucleotide disodium and other accessories as raw materials, spices and / or flavor enhancers with or without spices and / or edible spices after mixing, drying and processing. It has the freshness and flavor of chicken compound seasoning. Adding chicken essence in cooking can greatly improve the taste of dishes and make them delicious. Some people think that the nutritional value of chicken essence is relatively high, but others think that eating chicken essence is not good for the body, which is groundless.

These ingredients in chicken essence are also relatively safe, so from the perspective of ingredients, they belong to the safety level, not to mention any toxicity.

Can chicken essence and monosodium glutamate affect health?

And for chicken essence and monosodium glutamate carcinogenesis is not true. The reason for this is that when chicken essence and monosodium glutamate exceed 120 ℃, they will be converted into sodium pyroglutamate, so many people will think it is a carcinogen. But in fact, many experiments have proved that sodium pyroglutamine is not a carcinogen, and a large number of experimental results show that monosodium glutamate is also a safe food. And when cooking, MSG and chicken essence are usually put out of the pot, and the temperature will not exceed 120 ℃. Therefore, as long as it is correct and appropriate consumption of chicken essence and MSG will not have any impact on health. But you also need to pay attention, these two kinds of fresh products are not suitable for more, must strictly control the dosage, each dish can add about 0.5g.

The content of sodium in monosodium glutamate is less than 1 / 3 of that in table salt. Although it is safe, it should be appropriate. Suggest friends can use monosodium glutamate instead of salt, reduce sodium intake, otherwise it will increase the burden of blood pressure and heart. Although chicken essence and monosodium glutamate are safe condiments, they should be eaten reasonably in daily life.
