The Art of Saltiness, Xian/Umami Taste, Sweetness, Sourness, Spiciness and Mouthfullness in the Recipe

 

Saltiness - the foundation of all tastes. It brings out the natural flavor in food. Without the foundation of saltiness, it is hard to bring out other tastes vividly. The dosage of salt in Orleans-style marinade is 11-15%, and 0.72-1% in chicken products.

Xian/Umami taste – it is the synonym of Umami. The main components that are responsible for Xian/Umami taste are amino acids (glutamic acid, aspartic acid), and nucleotides (Inosinic acid, Guanylic acid). The representative formulas are soy sauce powder and Strong Umami Yeast Extract

Sweetness - in synergy with Xian/Umami taste. It is the first taste that sensed by the tip of tongue. Cane sugar is a typical representative with pure and appropriate sweetness. Due to different constitution and construction of the sweet substance, the mouthfeel it brings differs obviously which mainly manifested in sweet intensity and features. Take the Orleans-style marinade for example, the paprika acts as a supplement and enhancer for sugar. The dosage of sugar in Orleans-style marinade is 35-38%, and 2.1-2.8% in chicken products.

Sourness - Taste enhancer. Citric acid is a typical flavor of citrus. It not only provides sourness, but also enhances the overall taste, rounding off various flavors. The existence of sour substances can remove unwanted off-notes and grease, improving the Xian/Umami taste and fragrance. The combination of citric acid and sweetness contributes to a more rich sweetness. In Orleans-style flavor, the citric acid and tomato powder provide rich sourness. The dosage of citric acid should be controlled within 1%, adjusting by the dosage of tomato powder. 

Fragrance and characteristic fragrance - spices and top notes ingredients with distinctive flavors. The common spices, including ginger powder, white pepper powder, onion powder, nutmeg powder, etc., help remove off-notes while enhancing meaty notes.

Mouthfullness and lingering taste - Yeast Extract, acting as a flavor enhancer, food ingredients that improve the mouthfeel and aftertaste, makes Orleans-style marinade full-bodied with mellow and rich flavor. In the application of chicken products, it covers the off-flavors while improving the mouthfullness. In this regard, Angel Flavor YE and Rich Peptides YE make better application effects.
