Flavour enhancer E-621 for savoury foods


Flavour enhancer E-621 or MSG can be used in all kinds of savoury foods. It is the most widely used flavour enhancer in the world. The additive has an umami flavour, which is loosely translated from Japanese as 'pleasant savoury flavour'. Umami is scientifically recognised as the fifth taste experience, in addition to sweet, sour, salty and bitter. Flavour enhancer E-621 not only provides an enhanced taste sensation but also a fuller feeling. It is used in many different foods, such as crisps, pizza, ready meals and soups and sauces. You can order this flavour enhancer E-621 online at Natural Spices in a package of 700 grams, 2 kilos or 25 kilos.



What is flavour enhancer E-621 or MSG?


Flavour enhancer E-621 is a substance that occurs naturally in very high-protein products. It is the salt form of glutamic acid, a natural amino acid. In addition to this glutamate, it consists of salt and water. The flavour enhancer is also called MSG, the English abbreviation for the name monosodium glutamate. In Asian and especially Chinese cuisine it is known as ve-tsin. The glutamate is responsible for the fact that it helps you feel satisfied. The concentration of this additive in foods is between 0.2 and 0.5%. At higher concentrations a sweet note occurs. An advantage of this additive is that it adds flavour to different dishes and therefore requires less salt.



Is flavour enhancer E-621 a safe food additive?


In recent years Flavour enhancer E-621 has regularly appeared in the news in a negative way. The additive is said to be bad for your health and may cause various side effects. However, it is a safe food additive and permitted by the European Food Safety Authority. However, the European Commission has set a maximum use limit for the additive. We therefore advise you to read about this on their website after buying flavour enhancer E-621 online.
