Bitterness can come from a variety of sources including storage, processing, naturally occurring compounds and ingredients such as artificial sweeteners, botanicals, preservatives, caffeine and more.

Monosodium glutamate is the sodium salt of the
naturally occurring amino acid, glutamic acid. It is used as a food additive and is commonly marketed as a flavor enhancer. In situations where the presence of MSG is not desired but the “umami” effect it brings is, Innova offers alternative solutions that provide comparable enhancement, mouthfeel, and umami meeting your label needs.
