Is MSG In Seasoning, Chicken Cubes, Ajinomoto, etc! Safe?


Is MSG safe for consumption?

MSG is known as an excitotoxin – a substance which overexcites body cells to the extent that they are damages or killed. Studies show that regular consumption of MSG may result in adverse side effects which include depression, disorientation, eye damage, fatigue, headaches, and obesity.

However, FDA for example, claimed to have received reports of symptoms such as headache and nausea after eating foods containing MSG. However, FDA was never able to confirm that MSG caused the reported effects. Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB) also examined the safety of MSG in the 1990s. FASEB’s report concluded that MSG is safe.

Even NAFDAC allows it as food ingredients in Nigeria, they must have regarded it as safe for consumption.
