How Kingusto works

Kingusto introduces and enhances the umami flavour in your product. Umami is a pleasant savoury taste produced by glutamate and ribonucleotides which occur naturally in foods, including mushrooms. The ribonucleotides inosinate and guanylate do not activate the umami taste receptors in the mouth on their own, but they amplify the umami sensation caused by glutamate. Kingusto contains all those molecules, and that is why Kingusto is so powerful.
