Umami powder lends the secret savory flavor you’ve been missing in your cooking. When we were young, we learned about four basic tastes (sweet, sour, bitter, and salty). But they didn’t tell us about the fifth taste: umami! Carefully crafted from a blend of finely chopped mushrooms, aromatic vegetables and herbs, umami powder lends a pleasant savory taste to dishes. Just a bit of umami goes a long way in crafting flavorful recipes.
Add a pinch of umami during the cooking stage or sprinkled on a finished dish afterward. Try it with meats, tofu, vegetables, pasta, or any foods that could use a hint of savory goodness. We love sprinkling it on hamburger patties!
**Please note that umami powder is highly concentrated in flavor and potency. Use it sparingly, as you would use salt. In a recipe that already contains added salt, consider using less umami powder.
Added great flavor to my lentil soup. Can’t wait to try it in other dishes for complexity and depth.Gwyn, Lynchburg, VA

A good change in flavoring my meals instead of basic seasoning salts.Michelle, Washington, DC
I use it a lot, put in meatloaf, add a sprinkle to eggs, add a sprinkle to alfredo sauce, egg salad, steak, chicken etc. It ramps up the flavor.Diane, Gilbert, PA
