? Both monosodium glutamate and chicken essence are seasonings, and now many families will choose monosodium glutamate or chicken essence as a seasoning. Therefore, for many families who often choose MSG and chicken essence, we want to have a comprehensive understanding of which kind of MSG and chicken essence is better. The following content gives a detailed introduction to many friends who often eat MSG and chicken essence. You can have a comprehensive understanding.
the main component of chicken essence is monosodium glutamate, but monosodium glutamate is a single, and chicken essence is a compound seasoning, in which the content of monosodium glutamate is about 40%. In addition to monosodium glutamate, there are starch (used to form granules), flavoring nucleotides (used to increase the taste of monosodium glutamate), sugar and other spices in chicken essence. The flavoring nucleotides can also produce flavor. After mixing with monosodium glutamate, the flavor will be much more than the sum of the two. This is called “synergy.”. Strictly speaking, there should also be some ingredients from chicken, such as chicken powder, chicken oil and so on, to produce the flavor of chicken. However, due to the high cost of ingredients from chicken, manufacturers may not use chicken ingredients at all in order to reduce costs. Therefore, whether the chicken essence you buy contains ingredients from chicken completely depends on the manufacturer, and it is basically impossible for consumers to judge from the product.
monosodium glutamate has a single component, which mainly increases the “fresh” taste in food. The ingredients of compound seasonings such as chicken essence and mushroom essence are complex. Generally speaking, “Xiang” flavor is stronger. No matter what kind of essence, as long as it can produce “delicious”, it contains monosodium glutamate. But after careful formulation, the flavor of compound flavor is more efficient and can meet different needs.
which effect of MSG and chicken essence is better? After understanding the above introduction, I believe many people have a specific understanding of which effect of MSG and chicken essence is better. After understanding, it is recommended that you choose chicken essence, because chicken essence not only contains MSG, but also is a compound seasoning product. But whether it is monosodium glutamate or chicken essence, in the choice of seasoning, for the sake of health, we should control the amount.
