I use MSG in some things without a problem. My son works in a Japanese Hibachi restaurant and the new owner stopped using it so I have a large container in my pantry. It doesn't go in everything but I'll use it in place of salt sometimes if I want the flavor of the dish to come out instead of the salt.

MSG isn't a meat tenderizer. Some meat tenderizers (enzyme-based) add MSG, though.

Did you read the link I posted? You stated you had never "heard" of it as a tenderizer. I gave you a link where others had.

Yeah, me too, I like to use some food with my MSG some times, otherwise it MSG strait, no food adedd. Ok, ok, of course I'm joking. But the last big article I red about it had all kind of information and proof that in fact MSG is not bad for us. I do not specificaly add any, but if some of the seasonings I use has some I have no problem with it.

I did read your link. However I don't know who Alice is and I believe she is mistaken.

I would, however, believe that the manufacturer of the product would not hesitate to claim MSG's virtues as a meat tenderizer if it actually was effective as one.

Here's a link to a site that promotes MSG.

My old bottle did, too. And it was sold with the powdered meat tenderizers, so I always thought it was also a tenderizer.

Hmm never heard of Ac'cent before. I use this brand which is found in the Asian foods section of the supermarket. They also make dashi and other products.

For info regarding MSG and safety/health issues, look here: MSG FAQs - Saftey

I'm allergic to it. Not a pretty sight. Also its a drug. It works by making your taste bud nerves fire. Food should taste good because it tasts good. Not because of drugs (brownies excludes - just joking).
