I am not a  big fan of soup, but my husband loves them so much. Every time we visit Chinese restaurant to have dinner, he always like to order some. We all know that most of the Chinese restaurant still use their secret ingredient in their cooking, Monosodium Glutamat which is known as MSG. MSG enhances the savory flavor of a meal.  I am not actually sure how the MSG could affect people’s health, but I know that some people with asthma may have an allergy toward MSG. Personally, I think using MSG in cooking makes your throat dry and you tend to never satisfy from drinking water. Anyway, you could substitute MSG with a combination of sugar and salt.
