One of the most harmful ingredients we consume on a regular basis, without being aware of it, issodium glutamate E621 – a common additive found in almost all manufactured foods. Moreover, there’s hardly a restaurant that doesn’t use this taste enhancer.
Sodium glutamate E621 comes in the form of white crystalline powder, and it’s very similar to salt and sugar. It can also be found in liquid form. It has the taste of meat soup and can be added to any food to enhance the flavor. Sodium glutamate intake causes increased cravings, and leads to overeating and obesity.
It stimulates the brain cells in much the same way as drugs do thus creating a feeling of addiction. It’s easily absorbed in the blood and brain causing a change in the genes in charge of the sense of taste.
