SCELTA TASTE ACCELERATORS
Scelta Taste Accelerators (STA) are natural taste enhancers based on the umami principle. They are developed to modify or increase the intensity of the perceived flavour in your application: the natural umami effect deepens, enriches masks bitter and metallic flavours and provides a long-lasting effect. STA is a natural, clean and clear labelling alternative to artificial flavour enhancers like MSG, I+G and yeast extracts. Furthermore STA is applied as a salt reduction tool. STA can be applied in a wide range of applications: from soups to sauces, meat to snacks, and from chocolate to brownies. The average amount of STA is 0,15-0,30% on the total weight of the product. This dosage really depends on the final composition of the ingredients in your applications.
