What is Umami?

Your tongue has five different taste receptors: sweet, salty, sour, bitter, and umami. Translated from Japanese, umami means "savory deliciousness."

Umami is the pleasant savoury taste when you have a slice of bacon or cheese, or from a hearty pasta sauce. Umami-rich food can be found in cheese, tomatoes, cured meats, and seafood. It is also found in mushrooms, particularly in shiitake mushrooms...which is what Takii Umami Powder is made from.

Takii Umami Powder adds instant umami goodness to all your dishes.
