Made from a combination of sea salt, tomato concentrate and mushroom and seaweed extracts, Umamix Bold is designed to help manufacturers create both clean-label and healthier products.
Eliminate MSG use
The new variety is also claimed to help eliminate the use of monosodium glutamate (MSG) in savoury foods.
“Consumers are aware of the World Health Organisation’s call to reduce sodium and, at the same time, they demand cleaner products with natural positioning,” said Revital Ben Shachar, marketing manager for Salt of the Earth.
“Umamix Bold has an exotic taste that can enhance the flavour of a variety of products.”
A trial conducted with a processed meat company in Israel showed that replacing salt with Umamix Bold in sausages can improve flavour and decrease sodium by up to 30%.
