〔文/Liang Qiongbai〕Most people reject the use of monosodium glutamate, thinking that eating dishes with monosodium glutamate will cause dry mouth, even tight shoulders and necks, and the ingredient of monosodium glutamate is sodium glutamate, which also contains a lot of sodium Salt, seasoning with it can beautify the taste and add flavor. In fact, it will not cause harm to the human body, unless it is used too much. For example, if salt or soy sauce is used in the seasoning, and a large amount of monosodium glutamate is added, the sodium salt content is too high It is easy to be thirsty, so the amount of salt should be less when adding MSG to the dishes. The ingredients themselves are light, such as various vegetables. , the taste is already very rich, so there is no need to add MSG. Generally, the amount of MSG used in restaurants is higher than that at home, which makes people worry.

The ingredients of chicken powder are disodium nucleotide, sodium glutamate and spices. To put it bluntly speaking, in addition to these ingredients, MSG is added to make the umami taste higher, so a small amount can achieve a more delicious effect. It's better to just use MSG, just changing the name will make consumers think that the grade is higher.

Although chicken powder is also called chicken essence, it does not contain chicken ingredients at all.
