Xianness Yeast Extract

Natural source of umami taste

First identified by Japanese scientist Dr. Kikunae Ikeda in 1908, Xianness or Umami means “essence of deliciousness” in Japanese: in fact, it is one of the five core tastes, often described as the meaty, savory deliciousness that deepens flavor.

From a technical point of view, it is the taste of glutamate, an amino acid occurring naturally in the human body and in many delicious foods we eat every day.
Umami is universally loved and now absolutely on the rise among food manufacturers.

It is not only boosting the whole food industry's new product development but also a key characteristic that can affect the success of a variety of food applications, such as plant-based meat, bouillon, snacks, etc
Umami is also the "fifth" taste which yeast extract is very well known for: among mainstream ingredients of umami taste, Yeast Extract is the only ingredient featuring food property.

It is beneficial in:

  • bringing out strong umami taste
  • prolonging aftertaste
  • delivering a well-balanced taste profile
  • Angel Yeast Extract - a natural source of Xianness

    Rich in natural nucleotides, Angel Xianness Yeast Extract by Angel Yeast provides a strong Xian/Umami taste able to intensify the overall taste of food applications. It is a perfect clean label ingredient and a natural substitute for MSG.
    Angel Yeast Extract helps manufacturers develop cleaner, tastier, and healthier formulations in the most cost-effective way.

    Angel Xianness Yeast Extract by Angel Yeast is now distributed in France and Germany by Faravelli GmbH.
    Please get in touch with Nicolas Bord for any information and to request a sample.
