Japanese cuisine is one of the most popular in the world. It is even safe to say that everyone loves Japanese food. There is simply something about Japanese food that is hard to resist.
Have you ever wondered what they put in their food? Perhaps you have heard of umami, the Japanese word for a basic taste/flavor that makes everything taste better. You will be familiar with the other basic tastes: sweet, sour, salty, and bitter. Add umami to that list, and you will always be creating dishes that will make everyone want more.
If you want to learn more about umami, the site to visit is the Umami Global Web Site. It provides all the information that you need to know about this taste. For example, this natural substance can be found in Ajinomoto, a brand long known in Asia (and the rest of the world, actually). While this brand has received its share of negative publicity, the truth about glutamate and umami is totally different.
