If you've had Chinese food take out before there's probably a high chance that you've eaten it before, my dad used to work in this japanese restaurant and he said they put a ladle full in the soup .-.

I am black, so I cannot be a "random white person" who gets allergic. I have no allergies, and I am balding already.

I'd try it, if not for Vorpal mentioning that there are better-tasting alternatives.

I'm much more interested in Kosher Salt and Sea Salt. Anyone had those? How do they taste? Are they worth the hype being made about them?
If you eat Ramen or any instant-noodles with the little powder packages with them, then you probably have eaten MSG before.

i've been eating MSG in my family's cooking for years and i eat processed foods too. i am no where near obese and no one in my family is obese in either the US or the philippines. i used to work in a chinese place non of us were obese there either. so i'm skeptical.

Be careful what you wish for. MSG may not be causing it, but American fast food franchises like KFC are catching on like wildfire in China D:

People just have to be more modest when consuming food. Eat anything excessively and you'll still get fat.

Fast food is some of the most calorie dense on the planet. A full Japanese breakfast has about a third of the calories a Full English breakfast does, or the equivalent of a Big Mac combo (not super sized, regular coke and fries). It's also nowhere near as filling as real food.

You can find MSG everywhere, lol. If you peruse the ingredients of most packaged or canned foods, you can find Monosodium Glutamate and/or Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein (both are MSG). Much fast food contains MSG as well. D: That's why I don't eat fast food often, and if I choose to eat chips, I eat Sun Chips. :] They have no MSG.

...Sun Chips...lol...of whom does that remind me?

MSGs are used excessively in restaurants since it is cheap and it makes food moar palatable

Philippine restaurants like Manila Restaurant used to add alot of MSG on their infamous "Lumi"
however they were advised by Dept of Health to cut-off the amount added into the dish
after there were reports from customers who went dizzy and/or feeling some other minor inconvenience after eating the dish

the use of powdered stocks is more popular over MSG due to health advisories for the latter
since it can be stored in jars, easily prepared and added to dishes to improve taste

I don't thing we use MSG intensionally when we cook something generally from scratch at home, but when it comes to the prepakaged microwaveable food I throw in my lunchbox to eat at work or whatever I eat at a restraunt (fastfood included), there isn't much you can do about it.
