Natural Fermented Soy Hydrolysed Vegetable Protein as natural food seasoning! (to replace MSG)
For more than hundred years, Hydrolysed Vegetable Proteins (HVP) have been used as ingredients in a wide range of foods, primarily as an agent to enhance food flavors. With the development of the Food Technology, BIONUTRICIA has expanded its product in turning Hydrolysed vegetable protein into powder that is suitable for manufacturing into a wide range of seasoning products.
HVP is made from single or combined plant-based protein sources, including soy, corn, and wheat. Protein molecules are long chains of amino acids linked together by peptide bonds. These bonds are broken to produce HVP using hydrochloric acid and then neutralized with sodium hydroxide, which leaves behind sodium chloride (table salt). This is followed by filtration, concentration and spray drying.\nOne of the amino acids in HVP is glutamic acid. Consumers are more familiar with glutamic acid in the form of its sodium salt monosodium glutamate, or MSG. Glutamic acid is giving the taste of umami, which is one of the five basic tastes that has been described as meaty and savory. This is why this flavor enhancer has traditionally been consumed in many Asian countries.
HVP is often used as condiments, and can also be used as flavor enhancers in soy sauce, soups, meat products and snack foods. HVP can also increase the nutrition of food, as it has 8 essential amino acids that are indispensable to the human body, as well as other amino acids.
In response to negative side effects reported in regards to MSG, manufactures have increasingly relied on HVP as an alternative to providing the desired organoleptic properties of the end product. Due to the similar amino acid present in HVP and MSG, consumers may perceive HVP as a healthier alternative to MSG because it is made from vegetable proteins.
