    Introduction: Glutamate is a non-essential amino acid that is found in practically the majority of the food we take in every day. Monosodium glutamate (normally called MSG) is a subsidiary of this amino acid. MSG is generally used to season sustenance, particularly in the Asian and American population. This study expects to consider the awareness on usage of MSG among college students in Chennai and therefore pinpoint the awareness and side effects experienced (assuming any) of an MSG-rich eating regimen. Materials and Methods: This was a poll based examination. A questionnaire was circled among 100 college students from the age of 18 ahead which included inquiries in regards to their mindfulness about what MSG was, their genuine beliefs on it and regardless of whether they confronted any reactions in the wake of expending it. Results were acquired utilizing appropriate measurable strategies and in this manner the impacts of MSG (assuming any). Results: From the information, unmistakably there is an intense absence of mindfulness about MSG, yet a pervasive negative conclusion that gives it terrible notoriety despite the fact that it has been logically turned out to be sheltered. Conclusion: The measurable results of this survey indicated the way that most of the individuals were not influenced by MSG-rich dinners; however, there is overlying terrible notoriety about the concoction despite the fact that it is sheltered and tried. The most generally confronted impacts were nausea and headaches.
