What does the "S" stand for in the food additive MSG?

Answer:

Sodium

Monosodium glutamate (MSG) is a flavor enhancer commonly added to Chinese food, canned vegetables, soups, and processed meats. The Food and Drug Administration has classified MSG as a food ingredient that's "generally recognized as safe," but its use remains controversial. It was first identified by Japanese researchers in 1908 and has since become one of the most widely used additives in food production. Many people find that consuming MSG can trigger side effects including headaches, nausea, belly pain, and more.
