A new or old Chinese restaurant syndrome?

A new or old Chinese restaurant syndrome?

British Medical Journal 285(6349): 1205-1205

The total sodium content estimated in a typical Chinese take-away meal for 1 person, consisting of chicken-and-mushroom soup, chicken chop suey, sweet-and-sour pork, spring roll and fried rice was 225 mmol and it was thought that part of the discomfort which may follow such a meal could possibly be due to the very high intake of Na rather than the glutamate content alone. Therefore, 7 normal subjects were given the same take-away meal, Na content 238 mmol, at midday.
