Amino Acids for Flavour Production

Our amino acids can also be used in flavour production. Depending on how they are deployed in the Maillard Reaction process they can deliver umami and savoury flavours, as well as sweet flavour bases. For pet food applications our amino acids are also by producers of palatability-enhancers, also known as palatants, that deliver meaty flavours to encourage food acceptance rates.
