Mushroom extra powder uses the natural power of umami to increase flavour and reduce sodium in processed foods. Umami, the fifth basic taste, gives food a full, longer lasting taste while working in a synergy with other basic tastes. Furthermore, Umami flavour compounds, which are naturally present in for example mushrooms (as glutamate and guanylate), have the ability to improve the palatability and increase perceived saltiness. It makes DFI Mushrooms’ line of umami-rich vegetable extracts a powerful, natural alternative to MSG/I+G/AYE, but also sodium reduction tool. Sodium reductions of up to 50% have been achieved, without compromising taste and function and without the use of potassium.
