How to avoid MSG in China?

Jump to last reply

I'll be in China coming September - 8 days on an organised trek of the great wall+ privete [not organised] 3 days beijing, 2 days Xi'an and 2 days Chengdu. First time in China. - and I'm allergic to MSG; this is my biggest worry as the trip approaches - how to avoid MSG in my food.
Though I anoounced the organising company of my MSG allergy i doubt that i could trust the small local places where we'll eat that their food will be MSG-free.
I would appreciate advice on 2 topics: 1. Breakfast products in China [honey.. bread...milk products like white-cheese] - might they also contain MSG? 2. Do you know of any restuarants in Beijing-Xi'an-Chengdu that are 'safe' in this respect?

Will appreciate any advice!
