Should you put the Umami Dust a new Mediterranean inspired seasoning produced by the flavorist, Laura Santtini in the trolley or leave it on the shelf?
The first big plus for any shopper is that unlike many of the other food seasonings on the shelves it does not contain the flavour enhancer Monosodium Glutamate!
Unfortunately, it is not suitable for the vegan or the vegetarian shopper. Why? It contains anchovy salt. However, Laura Santtini has now teamed up with the Japanese chef Nobu Matsuhisa to create a Far Eastern vegetarian range. When it hits the shelves it will get the ‘Can I Eat It?’ green thumbs up for vegetarians and hopefully for vegans!
What does this seasoning dust contain?
Tomato powder, garlic, lemon peels, anchovy powder (anchovy salt), spices, natural lemon flavour, balsamic vinegar, porcini, mushroom powder.
Should you put it trolley? Not if you’re a vegan, vegetarian or a shopper that wants to avoid garlic or fish. A big yes if you want to add flavour to your meats for the barbeque, a risotto, a salad or a pack of unflavoured crisps.
