Cooking with urine

I was reading some comments on Ruhlman's blog where one poster said the newest thing in Singapore was cooking with dried urine, sprinkling it on fried foods. Has anybody heard of it or tasted it? I know historically urine (from a baby boy) was added to Chinese medicinal herbs, but people don't do that anymore (thank goodness!). What kind of flavor does it add?

    1. I have heard of urine used as a mouthwash in ancient rome and also today on many home remedy websites it is suggested to drink your own urine to help cure toothache. I would rather have the toothache then the pee breath I think? I also heard of jewish prisoners during the holocaust drinking their own urine instead of the poisoned tea.
