ITC - Imports of monosodium glutamate from China, Indonesia injure U.S. industry 

November 15:  The U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) today determined that there is a reasonable indication that a U.S. industry is materially injured by reason of imports of monosodium glutamate from China and Indonesia that are allegedly subsidized and sold in the United States at less than fair value.

This determination is included with an investigation and one other ITC determination for the week of November 11-15 2013.


  • There is a reasonable indication that a U.S. industry is materially injured by reason of imports of monosodium glutamate from China and Indonesia that are allegedly subsidized and sold in the United States at less than fair value (13-116) – determination
