Monosodium Glutamate (MSG), a food additive taken together with especially commercially processed foods [1] could dissociate to glutamate, an amino acid that could enter systemic circulation via related metabolic routes. Reports of MSG-intoxication in animals abound [2-11] . The non-fully understood biochemical basis of MSG-intoxication heightened research activities on particularly the possibilities of using hitherto agro waste to modulate any adverse effect of MSG in animals [12-14] .
