U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on approving use of monosodium glutamate in products used in agriculture. The Rule established “an exemption from the requirement of a tolerance for residues of the biochemical glutamic acid in or on all food commodities, when applied as a plant growth and crop yield enhancer in accordance with good agricultural practices.

 

The Rule

 

… we have found the exemptions for the requirement of a tolerance for residues of "glutamic acid" and "GABA" in or on all food commodities, and the unconditional registration of "GABA," "glutamic acid" (sometimes referred to as "L-glutamic acid"), and AuxiGro WP (AuxiGro), to be unwarranted.

Those who eat more monosodium glutamate weigh more.  That's what it says in the journal Obesity. The study is available online at: http://www.nature.com/oby/journal/v16/n8/full/oby2008274a.html
