May be she refers to Aji-no-moto as chinese salt. But she recommends 2 tbs of chinese salt and thats a LOT
Yes u r right it is Aji-no-moto. There is by chance a mistake about measurement right is 1/2 tbsp.

Aji-no-mato is a very controversial ingredient due to it's association with allergies, asthma, rapid heart beat, raised blood pressure and so on. Aji-no-mato is a flavour enhancer and is originally a Japanese item. MSG reactions also called Chinese Restaurant Syndrom is one of the largest controversies in the food industry in the US. MSG is even used on salad bars to maintain freshness, and is used as a fertilizer on crops. Interesting subject. Shanti/Mary-Anne

Ajinomoto is known as MSG. It originated in Japan and is called Aji-no-Moto if from Japan. Big debate about the effects on ones health as many are allergic to it-get severe headaches, nausea, dizziness, it causes fluid retention and raises blood pressure. Back in 1968 a Korean-American physician wrote a letter to the editor of the New England Journal of Medicine describing an unusual physiological reaction he often experienced while dining at a Chinese restaurant, which he dubbed the "Chinese restaurant syndrome."[1] Dr. Kwok described the symptoms as "numbness at the back of the neck, gradually radiating to both arms and the back, general weakness and palpitations." Other anecdotal reports expanded the symptom complex to include muscle tightness, tingling sensations, headaches and chest pains or heart palpitations. It became known as the "Chinese restaurant syndrome". More recently this reaction has been renamed the more politically correct "MSG symptom complex" (MSC). Over the past several decades many Americans have become convinced that MSG is the source of not only this symptom complex but also a wide variety of other symptoms including some serious illnesses and even death.
