What are some fun facts about Umami?

Did you know…

Now that the umami flavor has gained some popularity, food and beverage companies everywhere are utilizing it in all kinds of interesting ways. There’s now umami beer, umami wine, and seaweed infused umami ice cream. It’s also interesting to note that intentional cultivation of umami taste dates back to Ancient Rome, where they created an umami-rich fermented fish sauce called garu.

Where does nutritional yeast come from?

The answer will surprise you!

Nutritional yeast is harvested as a fungus that grows on molasses or other growth mediums that come from sucrose.

Is this product kid-friendly?

You bet!

It is 100% kid-friendly, and a lot of parents find it super useful to motivate kids to eat their greens. Sprinkle some on your kiddo’s veggies and they’ll probably ask you for more!

What other ingredients does Boku add to the Umami product?

What are the ingredients?

We enhance both the nutritional value and taste of our Umami with hemp seeds, sesame seeds, garlic powder, onion powder, coriander, turmeric, black pepper, cayenne pepper, himalayan pink salt and of course Boku’s amazing blend of 20 potent specialty mushrooms!

Is nutritional yeast the same kind of yeast that goes into bread starters?

It’s unlike brewers yeast! Unlike brewer’s yeast, nutritional yeast goes through a heating and drying process that deactivates it, so it’s not actually alive. It does not have the same fermented flavor as active yeasts, but instead is mildly sweet and savory all at once.

 

How should I use Umami Products?

Versatility, versatility!

Put on any food that you want to add a savory and robust snap to. Use Umami seasoning to replace salt and pepper, Parmesan cheese or any other seasonal topping. It’ll become your new favorite flavor, with tons of health benefits to boot. Since nutritional yeast is so versatile, please enjoy wide creative expression with its uses.
