Kokumi yeast extract

a new discovery

Kokumi was first discovered in Japan in 1989 and expresses the concept of “deliciousness”. Kokumi is defined as the combination of mouthfulness, long-lasting sensation and harmony in taste.

 Kokumi doesn’t actually have a taste in itself but does intensify taste by triggering receptors on the tongue.  One of the compounds that is responsible for this kokumi sensation is a peptide – a naturally occurring amino acid. In synergy with tastes, kokumi brings richness and fullness sensations to sweet, salty and umami tastes.

Biospringer offers Springer® 4000, rich in gluthatione, that provides kokumi.
