the additive I use in certain dishes. No proven harm occurring in normal use. However, there is a point to be careful about using Do not throw lots of food to add flavor. Just as salt increases the aroma when added to a meal, but if you use it too much, the food becomes inedible, so the same is true. en best, add a small amount and increase the taste of the meal. Also, I think msg alone does not do anything. You have to combine it with salt and other spices. The food I use is eggs, rice, rice and chicken. Especially when frying chicken with my own spice mixture, it becomes a very nice addition.
