I know over the last 20+ years people have become aware of how bad MSG is from a health standpoint, but it seems to still be used quite heavily in many areas. Back in the eighties Chinese take out was a big culprit but massive grassroots boycott seemed to change their ways. However, The fight was never brought to fast food, latin cuisine, or southern cooking. Does anyone here still endorse or advocate the use of MSG (Accent!)? I started thinking about this while creating a knock-off Chick-fil-A sandwich. (which btw the secret is marinating the chicken in pickle juice and using powdered sugar in the flour mix) and for the record I did not use MSG and it was still awesome.
