Monosodium Glutamate is sodium salt that can be found in glutamic acid, the most abundant non-essential amino acid in nature. We distribute this important flavour enhancer for the Iberian market. The literal translation of Ajinomoto is “Essence of flavour”, and is used as a brand name for monosodium glutamate (MSG), which was discovered and patented in 1909 by Kikunae Ikeda. He discovered that, in food like tomatoes, asparagus, cheese or meat, there was a common flavour that was not identified with any of the previously known flavours: (sweet, salty, bitter or sour); he then called it UMAMI. He knew that it was present in the “broth” made from kombu, a type of seaweed found in traditional Japanese cuisine. By using a lot of kombu broth, he was able to extract glutamic acid (or glutamate) crystals.
