Scelta Taste Accelerator (STA) uses the natural power of umami to increase flavour and reduce sodium in processed foods. Umami, the fifth basic taste, gives food a longer lasting taste while working in a synergy with other basic tastes. Furthermore, umami flavour compounds have the ability to improve the palatability and increase perceived saltiness. It makes our line of umami-rich vegetable extracts a powerful, natural alternative to artificial flavour enhancers MSG/I+G/AYE, but also sodium reduction tool. Sodium reduction results of up to 50% have been achieved, without compromising taste and function and without potassium. The product can be declared as natural aroma and can be used in many different savoury solutions.

Also perfect for sweet applications. For example, it reduces cocoa in brownies.

STA Liquid or Powder

The liquid (STA Liquid) and powder (STA Powder) are used as a general flavour enhancer, MSG replacer and sodium reduction tool in all types of savoury products, ranging from sauces and soups to ready-meals. In general, an addition of 0.15% to 0.30% is sufficient to create an effect. Sodium reductions up to 50% have been accomplished.

Reduce sodium by using STA

People today consume too much salt. And we know that processed food is a big factor in this. But consumers have got used to the taste, and they don’t like it if manufacturers reduce salt in their favourite foods. Luckily though, there’s a way to reduce salt levels while still enjoying the flavours we love: Umami.

Sodium reduction gained a lot of interest over the past few years, caused by several research studies that concluded the Advised Daily Intake of salt is well exceeded by the largest part of the population. In response to this research, several governments issued new laws regarding sodium reduction.
Scelta Taste Accelerator’s line targets products that are battling to achieve sodium reduction without any compromise in taste.
