E 621 (Monosodium Glutamate)

Monosodium glutamate (MSG) is a food additive, also known as umami, that enhances taste. It is used in most processed foods. Much in the same way the office environment has replaced natural light by tubelights, natural air by air conditioning, and natural vegetation by potted plants, the food we consume in the office environment has been replaced by processed food supplements containing monosodium glutamate. MSG is mildly addictive and stimulates our neurotransmitters. Unfortunately it is an excitotoxin, meaning it overexcites and damages our nerves.
