MSG is short for monosodium glutamate. It is basically a flavor enhancer due to its umami taste, which induces salivary secretion. In other words, umami flavors make your mouth water, elicit salivary secretion, enhance appetite, and increase food palatability1.
What if you can have better flavor with more nutrition at the same time? Crystal of the Sea offers a great substitute for MSG with our food powder series. Packed with umami and health benefits, you can get the best of both worlds simultaneously.
