Cooking rice with MSG.
White maggie as some Nigerians call MSG (Monosodium Glutamate) seasoning is a form of seasoning that used to be popular in the past before negative reviews started from what source oh? No one knows.  In Nigeria, we still have a few brands being sold in the market; The Ajino moto, Vedan and others. Many Nigerians won't touch any food cooked with MSG as seasoning ingredient (Even me, before now). Not only Nigerians, a lot of people all over the world won't eat white maggie because of all the stories we have heard about this white ingredient that fortunately or fortunately is part of the ingredients used in making our seasoning cubes. Some people complaining of nausea after consuming MSG (Why won't you feel nauseous when you empty a whole small pack into a small pot of stew; Some complain of experiencing adverse effects after eating food cooked with white maggie.  others
