MSG production / synthesis
 
Someone is telling me this, but I think I’m being played. Does the following ring true? Does it even make sense? Appreciate any thoughts on this. Thanks in advance.

MSG is no longer synthesized from acrylonitrile. It’s either produced through bacterial fermentation or acid hydrolysis of soy protein, and is very pure.

It’s not like protein synthesis, where you’re fighting an uphill battle against entropy. L-Glutamate is a simple amino acid, and is chemically stable.
