to be honest, im not practicing using MSG since it can lead you to bad health. I used to substitute SG to a pinch of sugar instead.

i still use msg in cooking. i've heard about it that it's bad for our health but i became dependent with it because i feel like if i will not use it my food will not taste like it should be. but i will try the pinch of sugar, i hope it will work for me too.

People are becoming more health conscious nowadays and I personally do not want MSG in my food, if possible. I am also tring to avoid instant noodles and processed foods since they also contain a lot of MSG. Even chips have a lot of them, good thing there are now products in the market without MSG but they are kind of expensive. There are also restaurants that claim they do not use MSG which is good because if you tend to eat out often then you are surely consuming a lot of MSG. Whenever I cook, i prefer salt and pepper for seasoning. Unfortunately, i don't have time to cook when i got married and my mother in law is the one who cooks, she is used to using MSG, but I am trying to convince her to stop or at least avoid using it.
