Umami

umami-pastes

Umami was first scientifically identified in 1908 by a Japanese professor of the Tokyo Imperial University. He noticed that the taste of kombo seaweed was distinct from sweet, sour, bitter and salty. He discovered that glutamate (or glutamic acid) was the main ingredient in kombu and coined the term 'umami' to describe it's taste.

We are able to offer fermented broad and soya beans that give a real depth of flavour and authenticity to a number of Asian style sauce.

Umami paste can dramatically increase pleasantness and an acceptance of salt-reduced foods which is of benefit to health. Ingredients include Sundried tomatoes, porcini mushroom and pecorino cheese.

 
Umami paste can be used in the following ways:
  • You can use umami paste as a condiment. Spread a thin layer on burgers, toasted breads or sandwiches. You can also mix it into dips and mayonnaise.
  •  
  • Rub umami paste onto meat, poultry or fish, just as you would a salt rub.  The taste will be incorporated into the meat through the roasting or cooking process.
  • Squeeze a 1/2tsp or tsp (2.5 to 3G) umami paste into stir fries, casseroles, risotto, pizza sauce,paste sauce, soup, stew, shepherds and cottage pie.
  •  
  • Squeeze a small amount on umami paste into a heating pan. Add a small amount of white wine stir well. This will create a sauce that can be added on top of vegetables or meats or used like a bouillon.
