Am a professional Chef in Japanese Food. For all lovers of Japanese food, I am pleased to meet you people.
Thanks to all of you that are contributing. Am learning alot from the debate. I will be posting more questions, to learn from you people. if you are interested in knowing how MSG is made Ajinomoto has it all on this link: http://www.ajinomoto.com/features/aji-no-moto/en/basic/method.html
For we Japanese, MSG is popular. As a chef one thing I must recommend is that making sure that what ever you eat, you read the usage manuel very well. Like MSG when using at home, I tell people a dash of it or tea spoon of it. However, many people add so much of it at once. Is like sugar, it add taste to our tea or coffee but if you use it too much, it is harmful.
Lizzie, how about this few:
