I tried the Tom Yam one 2yrs ago,not nice.It contains MSG,right?I don't use it...I've hair loss prob....doc advised to reduce salt n MSG intakes.

it is pretty to make soup...put all the ikan billis into pouch,add red date/honey dates,Szechuan vege...basic soup base.

I pre-prepare these in advance...for eg.wash n slice the szechuan vege n store in tupperware (fridge).Then i throw 3 or 4pcs(small ones) into the soup.

I've used knorr hao chi to fry eggs...but personally prefer the taste of soya sauce.
As for chicken cubes, i do use it to make chicken bee hoon...but not frequently. Don't feel thirsty though.

I never used any of the cubes available before. All the soup I cooked were from real ingredients. Made from scratch with love. I see these cubes in supermarkets.

I don't use it. But so tempted to try.
My mum uses it. So once, when we had soup at her place, after a little soup, my ds eye swollen. Only once out of so many times of drinking her soup, so it depends on the amount she added. He is allergic to certain amount of msg and can't take instant noodles flavourg to start with, but can tolerate little msg. So I can't use msg based stuff because have not determine his tolerance level.
Some hawker food he also swollen eyes, but we realised it is usually soup based or porridge. Faster absorption maybe?

So I can't use chicken cubes.

Is it ok to consume that regularly? A lot of preservatives right?
