MSG is also used as a meat tenderizer sometimes, this is why you see it in a lot of Chinese food that uses cheaper, tougher cuts.[/QUOTE]

Have read an awful lot about msg and related glutamates, and never heard of any of them being used as tenderizers

Tenderizers normally use enzyemes (like papain in Adolph's brand)

I can't weigh in on the presumed effects of eating msg. I know a few folks who are actually sensitive, or say they are. But I think in their case its only to msg from a manufacturing plant. Not the glutamates found in soy, cheese, sardines, etc.
