I like adding a bit of dried shitake mushroom to my rubs lately for a bit of an umami boost!

MSG is only one form of Glutimate, Umami describes the taste of glutimates. Glutimates are found in a number of foods throughout history (Before MSG) including back to the Romans who had a fermented anchovy "Sauce".
Thousands of years before the Romans, Asian cultures had developed a fermented fish that was used to flavour, and also to make sauces with, so the glutamate -umami gig has been around for a very long time.
When you cook ingredients containing glutamates, the break down and are L-glutamates. Natural glutamates are bound with proteins and are digested and absorbed slowly.
If you consume MSG, then the body is hit with a rapid absorbtion and while safe, reseachers acknowledge these days some people do have a variety of short term reactions.
Something as innocuous as pearl barley can give a glutamate sensitive person a serious reaction. It's only a hassle if you are in that population.

Whatever you do, don't give an asthmatic your food if you use msg. I personally ended up in hospital many times as a child after exposure to MSG, and even as an adult it will trigger asthma which I haven't really experienced badly for 10-15 years. Not all asthmatics have this issue, but a lot do, and some don't even realize it until they have a reaction.

How do you go with Parmesan cheese or Vegemite ?
Parmesan, with 1200mg per 100 grams, is the substance with more free glutamate in it than any other natural foodstuff on the planet.
Marmite, with 1750mg per 100g, has more glutamate in it than any other manufactured product on the planet - except a jar of Gourmet Powder straight from the Ajinomoto MSG factory.

Allergic to dairy and other stuff in vegemite anyway, so don't eat them usually
