Mangrove Trees
A mangrove is tropical marine tree or shrub of the genus Rhizhopora. Mangroves have special serial roots and salt-filtering tap roots that enable them to thrive in brackish water (brackish water is salty, but not as salty as sea water).
There are several species of mangrove trees found all over the world. Some prefer more salinity, while others like to be very close to a large fresh water source (such as river). Some prefer areas that are sheltered from waves. Some species have their roots covered with sea water everyday during high tide. Other species grow on a dry land, but are still part of the ecosystem.
Mangroves need to keep their trunk and leaves above the surface of the water. Yet they also need to be firmly attached to the ground so they are not moved by waves. There are three types of the mangrove roots that play an important role for it:
1. Support roots which directly pierce the soil.
2. Level-growing roots which twist upwards and downwards, with the upward twist emerging on the water surface.
3. Level-growing roots whose downward twist (sub roots) appear on the water surface.
Any part of a root that appears above the water flows oxygen to the plant under the water surface. As the soil begins to build up, these roots produce additional roots that become embedded in the soil.

a. The characteristics of mangroves

Regarding toxic ingredient in cooking, people usually assume that Monosodium Glutamate (MSG) is a potentially toxic food additive. But actually there is no study which has proven it. The fact is that MSG is still being researched to understand what effect the rise in serum glutamate will have post-MSG consumption.

No study has provided a clear demonstration that MSG as a food additive is either harmful or safe. Glutamate is common in many foods such as cheese, peas, and meat. Research has indicated that dietary of glutamate currently used as an additive to food have shown no significant health risk and such MSG is not considered a toxic substance by the US Food and Drug Administration.
However, it does not alleviate MSG of its possibly in food-borne illness. It is a subject of a great deal of research. Many studies have demonstrated toxicity in laboratory animals when MSG was ingested at a high level.

In a nut shell, without sufficient research, one would never adequately determine, but one thing is absolutely for certain, one can not predict the potential effect on one’s psychology when any chemically derived additive is consumed. The only true safeguard for food safety is adequately funded and established oversight of food production and distribution.
