AJI-NO-MOTO®, The Essence of Taste
Umami is one of the five basic tastes. It is described as a “meaty” flavor or “savory deliciousness.” Umami is essentially a taste of glutamate, an amino acid that occurs naturally in many delicious foods, such as tomatoes, cheese, cured meats, and mushrooms.
AJI-NO-MOTO® MSG contains glutamate in an easy-to-use form. It is produced through the natural fermentation of plant-based ingredients including sugar cane, sugar beets, cassava or corn. AJI-NO-MOTO® is a versatile seasoning that enhances flavor easily and safely.
