New blend offers superior savory flavor with a clean label

TURLOCK, California — Sensient Natural Ingredients, a global producer of wholesome, agriculture-based ingredients and solutions, has launched “Umami NaturalTM,” a proprietary, clean label blend of natural ingredients designed to bring harmony and balance to savory food products, without additives consumers perceive to be harmful.

In an industry increasingly focused on clean labels, Sensient Natural Ingredients is proud to maintain complete transparency, traceability and quality control throughout the development of its ingredients, from seed development and planting to harvest and packaging. Umami Natural leverages this renowned traceability to support growing trends in savory flavors without resorting to the use of artificial ingredients like MSG.

Umami Natural is a joint effort between Sensient Natural Ingredients and Sensient Savory Flavors, offering food industry manufacturers high-quality, clean label vegetable powders devoid of added MSG, salt, synthetic ingredients and gluten. It is designed to be an alternative for MSG in applications such as sauces, marinades, dressings, seasonings, snack foods, dips, condiments, soups, side dishes and meals. Umami Natural also meets health trends, boasting high protein, vitamin and fiber content, while also being low-sodium. And, of course, Umami Natural offers superior flavor enhancement and ingredient profile balancing, uncommon in other natural alternatives.

“Consumers are looking for simple ingredient statements and meals made from real food, but without conceding taste,” said Ryan Goularte, general manager of Sensient Natural Ingredients. “We are able to draw on our extensive agricultural background to bring this specialty blend of vegetables to our customers as a solution for flavor enhancement and sodium reduction, while keeping label declarations clean.”
