Summary
Umami is the recently accepted fifth basic taste, and describes the strong savory flavor that works as an important building block for many food items. There is a growing opportunity for the umami concept within the food and drink industry.

Key Findings
- Umami can be a game-changer in the development of formulations for sodium reduction. A large range of umami flavors can be used to successfully reduce salt or sodium in a food or drink product. For example, according to the Glutamate Association, MSG can reduce the amount of sodium in a recipe by up to 40%, while still maintaining the desired flavor.

- Umami-generating or -enhancing ingredients, such as yeast extracts, hydrolyzed proteins, and soy sauce, can be used in food and drink manufacturing to create vegetarian or vegan products or meals that have enough savory flavor to perform as suitable meat substitutes.

- Umami may have a role to play in improving the health of consumers above and beyond its potential role in sodium reduction. Umami's effects on appetite development, digestion, and satiety are being investigated, and may be important in future food design.
