The mono sodium glutamate in maggi, contrary to opinions in some quarters, is safe. Mono sodium glutamate is the same as the common salt we use, with the addition of an amino acid called glutamate. This is what the US Food and Drug Administration has to say on this:
"A 1995 report from the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB), an independent body of scientists, helps put these safety concerns into perspective and reaffirms the Food and Drug Administration's belief that MSG and related substances are safe food ingredients for most people when eaten at customary levels". - http://www.cfsan.fda.gov/~lrd/msg.html
The glutamate helps in transmission of impulses in the brain and nerves. Many other commonly used naturally occurring food substances contain glutamate.
Some individuals are allergic to mono sodium glutamate, just as normal people could be allergic to aspirin, paracetamol, or nuts.
If you are allergic to mono sodium glutamate, then please avoid using maggi preparations.
Common signs and symptoms of allergy to mono sodium glutamate as in maggi include: Headache, feeling nauseated, burning sensation in the throat or back of the neck, chest pain, rashes, or even difficulty with breathing following consumption of items containing mono sodium glutamate.
These cubes contain mainly iodine and mono sodium glutamate.
The iodine constituent provides a necessary ingredient the body requires in making thyroxine, a hormone that help regulate the body’s functions.
People who lack iodine in their food for a long time develops a swelling in their neck called goiter (please note that lack of iodine is just one of the reasons for goiter. If you have goiter, see your doctor to determine why and offer treatment advice).
