Belly Pain (Definition)

Is MSG in the food? : Some chinese restaurants add msg (monosodium glutamate) to their food as a flavor enhancer. You may be responding to this food additive rather than the food itself. Ask your restaurant about this. Not all add this stuff -- the higher end ones are more health conscious and won't do it. Seasonings in some dishes may result in sensitivities in some people also. Check on hot peppers, etc. ...Read more
