Abstract

Introduction: Monosodium glutamate (MSG) is widely used as food preservative. Asian countries are the major user among all to use this kind of additives despite of many debates among the safety of MSG for human consumptions. Natural MSG was found in foods with high protein, sea product, and vegetables. Method: Articles search via Google Scholar, and Sage Publication database. The search was not limited to English language but no article in bahasa Indonesia was found. Results: Research about weight gain and Body Mass Index (BMI) in human after MSG intake show contrary results. There were some studies that suggested body weight gain and BMI but some studies didn’t suggested. Research about genotoxicity of MSG mostly conducted on experimental animal. Discussion: This review reveal that even though there were evidence that MSG produce negative effect such as weight gain, cell inflammation, damage of reproductive organ in female animal samples, no generalized conclusion published to provide necessities of MSG prohibition in human foods. Keywords: monosodium glutamate, weight gain, BMI, genotoxicity
