    I'm going to start using it after reading this thread. Do you add it just like salt?

    Make sure you use it while cooking not as a condiment

    I made ma po tofu last night, and used a little msg. It's great with or without the MSG, but I like to live on the wild side every now and then.

    I hope you realize that MSG is in many ways just a form of salt. When you eat extremely salty things, you're going to get thirsty. The negative perception of MSG in this country is nothing more than a reflection of the West's ignorance/xenophobia towards things Asian. I also hope you realize that the Japanese food that white people have put on a pedestal are chalk-full of MSG, as MSG was invented by Dr. Kikunae Ikeda of Japan. Imagine the horror on white people's faces when they learn that the Japanese food they've been worshiping is actually packed full of MSG.

    Neanderthals ate with knives and forks in hand as they dug into animal carcasses.

    Woah. I like Asian food as much as anybody, but low blow on McDonalds. Someone is pissed at the West's superior dominance. Submit to us! Madame Butterfly?

    go on yelp and look at some reviews of asian restaurants. you'll find conflicting opinions everywhere. "they use lots of msg, i got really thirsty afterward," or "they don't use msg at all, which always gives me headaches." it's all in the mind.

    interestingly enough i just read an article couple days ago saying MSG has been around since ancient rome, and the romans loved using it on everything.

    They had STDs in Rome too. Doesn't mean I'm interested in partaking of any. [​IMG]

    I don't use MSG as an individual molecule, but I like to use items high in glutamic acid in my savory dishes. I made chicken vegetable soup a few weeks ago and started the stock with kombu so I could make it more flavorful but not rich. For my chili, I use tomato paste instead of canned tomatoes for the same effect.
