Applications

The flavour enhancing properties of Finèce, caused by the naturally present glutamates, contribute to a wide range of savoury dishes. Although glutamate is the primary source of umami flavour (basic umami), certain molecules called nucleotides (ubiquitous in many foods we eat) can enhance the umami sensation (synergistic umami). They cannot activate umami taste receptors themselves, but they can intensify the umami sensation caused by glutamate.

Therefore a balanced combination of Finèce with other ingredients is key to achieving maximum umami taste. The presence of umami can naturally enhance the saltiness of a product, helping food developers increase flavour sensation while keeping sodium content to a minimum. Finèce highlights sweetness, lessens bitterness, counterbalances saltiness and can contribute up to 25%-50% of salt reduction without compromising flavour.

Soups, sauces & fonds

Finèce can provide delicate flavouring notes, as well as richer flavours when added to soups, sauces or fonds. Because of its intense flavour, it can also help you reduce the sodium content of your product.

Furthermore Finèce is an excellent base for fonds/gravies based on beef, chicken, vegetables and of course mushrooms. Finèce is a 100% natural ingredient meeting the clean label trend and can be declared as “mushroom concentrate”, “mushroom extract” or “natural flavour”. It can also be used in (clean label) reformulations where salt needs to be reduced or ingredients such as MSG or yeast extract need to be removed.
