Flavorpro Umami is a microbial enzyme recently launched by Biocatalysts Ltd.Flavorpro Umami is a microbial enzyme recently launched by Biocatalysts Ltd.. It has been specifically designed for use in the manufacture of EMCs where a strong, mature, savoury flavor is required. Flavorpro™ Umami is an exopeptidase with endopeptidase and glutaminase side activities. It releases a high level of glutamic acid, an amino acid giving strong Umami flavor commonly found in fermented or aged food.

Umami heightens the flavor profile which helps increase the apparent saltiness in EMC. Therefore, EMC made with Flavorpro™ Umami can be used for salt reduction in processed cheese applications.

Flavorpro Umami can be used on its own or in combination with Biocatalysts’ dairy lipases. Because it is microbial and not derived from animals, it is suitable for use in Kosher, Halal and vegetarian products.
