Umami powder – also known as monosodium glutamate or MSG, or gourmet powder in China – is a flavouring which enhances dishes with a savoury, meaty umami taste. The tiny, salt-like MSG crystals were created and patented at the start of the twentieth century when Japanese Professor Ikeda isolated glutamate, or the 'umami' molecule, from a dashi seaweed stock and was able to manufacture it comercially.
Despite being a relatively new addition to China and Japan's store cupboards, monosodium glutamate has quickly become a cult ingredient. Try adding a pinch of umami powder to soups, stews and sauces to add extra body and depth.
