MSG is not a drug. I am not sure where you are getting your information from, but it is incorrect.

Maybe it is if you smoke it.

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.
You just aren't getting what I'm saying. I'm saying BACK IN THE 70'S it was billed as a tenderizer. You stated you hadn't heard that, I gave you a link to a Columbia University website that indicated it was believed to be one BACK IN THE 60'S and 50'S. My point was, and still is, that I have heard of it said that way, I gave you a link to a site that had also heard it billed that way. I never, EVER, said MSG, I said Ac'cent. A specific product that contains MSG. Not MSG specifically.

Advertising of things change over the decades. Look at cigarettes or booze. Things change.

Thank you pacanis. My Ac'cent is at the other house (my spices had to make the move, so they are already at the new house).

Ac'cent is pure MSG, nothing else added. By saying Ac'cent you are saying MSG specifically.

Sorry, GB's but that's not true. I was addressing specific advertising and my Ac'cent does list two ingredients. As I said, it's at the other house so I can't tell you what it is right now, but I will by the weekend.

Interesting Breezy. I am sitting here looking directly at the ingredient list, yet you are telling me that I am wrong even though your bottle is no where near you.

Here is a photo of what I am looking at. Notice that it even says ingredient (singular) not ingredients (plural).

I based my comment on this post of yours where you say you use it as a tenderizer (present tense).

Even the MSG promotion site says specifically it is not a tenderizer. Being a meat tenderizer is not a negative they would want to hide similar to the effects of smoking that you brought up.

The information comes from my son, who is a biochemist and working on a MD in NM.
