Is MSG Keto? 
By definition, yes - MSG is keto friendly as it has zero carbs and zero calories - just sodium which is good for electrolyte balance. However MSG is a food additive, so if you are doing squeaky clean keto, then you may choose to avoid it. 

What happens to MSG in your body? 
Chemically, MSG becomes sodium and glutamate during digestion, neither of which are damaging to health. Sodium is an essential mineral, with the FDA recommending an upper limit of 2,300mg per day. Glutamate is an amino acid obtained through food. It is one of the most abundant amino acids in the body and is also used as a major neurotransmitter throughout the nervous system.

So what's the fuss about it? 
Concerns around MSG as a food additive began in the 60s with a study that identified “Chinese restaurant syndrome”. Although the findings of this research have largely been debunked, fears still surround the widespread use of MSG. Some early studies found that it caused brain damage in rats, but closer inspection reveals that these findings were only possible when administering astronomically large doses of MSG, which you simply wouldn’t find in food.

What's the latest research? 
More recent research into humans haven’t found any association between normal levels of MSG and symptoms including headaches, weight changes, allergies, or hypothalamic disruption. If anything, the most justifiable reason for avoiding MSG is that it is a food additive, so can’t be factored into a clean-eating diet regime.
