  1. When I see ingredients contain MSG, I baffled why? MSG is not health and it is totally chemical made. Sorry, I can’t rate this recipe with high marks because it did not let the fresh ingredients to shine in this recipe.

    1. Dear Amber,

      Thank you for your comment! We welcome any and all critique here on Honest Cooking, and we do know that the use of MSG has been the topic of much debate over the years. MSG is actually not “totally chemically” made, and not considered harmful by the FDA. It is Monosodium glutamate, the naturally occurring sodium salt of the amino acid glutamic acid. Industrial MSG (which has the exact chemical composition of natural MSG) is primarily made by bacterial fermentation, a process similar to that of yogurt or vinegar making. Over-consumption of MSG (which you wouldn’t reach with a normal meal), just like many other spices or ingredients, can have a negative effect on digestion and headaches. Also about 1% of the population has an insensitivity to MSG, similar to some people experiencing allergy problems when consuming wine.

      Happy Cooking!
