Use 1:1 ratio mixture of sugar and salt as a substitute ingredient to your recipe instead of MSG. This is safer to use, especially if you have children at home.


Monosodium glutamate (MSG) is a food additive used as a flavor enhancer. The advantage of MSG goes to those who easily lose their appetite. This is a very common ingredient in fast foods and food seasonings. MSG is actually harmless but too much consumption would cause headaches and this is not good for people who have vertigo (a sensation of spinning).

MSG is far from harmless. Is is toxic to our bodies.
And subbing sugar and table salt isn't healthy either.
How about using just a good sea salt or some herbs and spices.
