"Flavor Extender"?

lrostron | Aug 30, 2011 12:40 PM

I came across a pamphlet that was my grandmother's, entitled Betty Crocker's Bisquick Party Book, printed in 1957 (okay, so I'm one year older than it is). I noticed in most of the recipe that call for meat, particularly beef, it calls for 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon "flavor extender". Flavor extender = MSG or Accent? Any thoughts?
