Using Umami-Essence Sea Salt in a new or existing product formulation can help dramatically decrease sodium levels in some formulations by up to 50% while boosting flavour. The all-natural Umami-Essence Sea Salt is low in sodium and, most importantly, contains no MSG or artificial ingredients.
“This innovative ingredient can help food manufacturers keep the consumer-craved salty flavor while maintaining a low amount of sodium in the final application," explains Aliza Ravizki, R&D manager of Salt of the Earth. “It’s a ready-to-use liquid formulation that can naturally intensify umami, the so-called fifth taste of the finished dish.”
“The characteristics of Umami-Essence Sea Salt help food scientists innovate healthier reduced-salt recipes that contain only natural ingredients and don¹t compromise flavour,” explains Giorit Carmi, Marketing Manager for Salt of the Earth. “It provides food manufacturers a much simpler way to include a clean label claim on products and to comply with the global salt-reduction agenda of cutting sodium in processed foods.”
“This is the first specifically umami-enhancing ingredient developed by Salt of The Earth,” adds Ravizki. “We tested the formulation in a range of sauces, pizza toppings and more and achieved outstanding results in terms of saltiness and savory flavor. This superior ingredient enables clean labelling while avoiding MSG and enhancing the final product flavour.”
