I have friends who SWEAR that they get bad effects from MSG, but can gobble Doritos with no effect. 


Uh huh.

Never had a Doritos to test out that unstated theory.  In fact the above-posted event was my sole response to perhaps MSG.  No one else at the table felt the need to stand in the rain.

Are you sure? It is in most convenience foods, snacks etc - usually listed as flavor enhancer. Also naturally in cheese, tomato, mushrooms and a host of other foods.

I'm sorry I ever said a word. I've never gotten dizzy from a handful of cheetos or a sliced tomato, and I've eaten plenty of both. This thread proves that people just love to defame or defend MSG at the drop of a hat. I'm out!
