Monosodium glutamate (MSG, also known as sodium glutamate) is the sodium salt of glutamic acid, one of the most abundant naturally occurring non-essential amino acids. Glutamic acid is found naturally in tomatoes, grapes, cheese, mushrooms and other foods.MSG is used in the food industry as a flavor enhancer with an umami taste that intensifies the meaty, savory flavor of food, as naturally occurring glutamate does in foods such as stews and meat soups. It was first prepared in 1908 by Japanese biochemist Kikunae Ikeda, who was trying to isolate and duplicate the savory taste of kombu, an edible seaweed used as a base for many Japanese soups. MSG as a flavor enhancer balances, blends, and rounds the perception of other tastes.
Shift of consumer preference towards processed food consumption owing to hectic lifestyles is a key point to drive market. Processed food is seen as an easy availability to consumers with the increase in middle class disposable income levels. This factor is likely to favor processed food industry growth over the next few years. Increasing keenness towards consuming food containing natural minerals and additives such as bulking agents, antioxidants, antifoaming agents, among other coupled with increasing health consciousness by the consumer are likely to favour monosodium & glutamic acid market in future. Asia-Pacific has the highest market share for MSG and glumatic acid, the India and China food processing industries are estimated to witness a growth over the forecast period.
The global Glumatic Acid and Monosodium market is valued at xx million US$ in 2017 and will reach xx million US$ by the end of 2025, growing at a CAGR of xx% during 2018-2025.
