This article says that we react to MSG in amounts much lower than the manufacturers claim:

Excellent article Roy!!! Interesting to note that the FDA considers 1/2 gram of monosodium glutamate to be a low amount. I was remembering my stupid experiment of testing my sensitivity to MSG with 1/8 teapoon of Accent brand. That 1/8 teaspoon equals 1/2 gram. I'd started by just taking a little bit of that 1/8 teaspoon and within minutes my carotid heartbeat, which had been barely detectable prior to ingestion, was pounding only moments after ingesting that small portion of the 1/8 teaspoon. WOW!!! It is also interesting to note that the article describes MSG sensitivity as MSG toxicity syndrome. Thank you for sharing that article.
