Are you looking for a new subtle seasoning ?

 

    Nature Made 

Shiitake is the best Umami enhancer

"Shiitake"and "Umami"are Japanese word. But, today, most of the shiitake is made in China, or cultivated by artificial substrate.

Almost Japanese Dried Shiitake is Natural log cultivation. 


You might not have eaten yet nature made Shiitake.  Over 95% of the Shiitake available in supermarkets is artificial substrate cultivation.

 

Nature made Shiitake contains rich "Guanosine monophosphate (GMP).
GMP makes glutamate taste more intensely Umami.

 

How about using the Shiitake of Natural log cultivation, instead of MSG (artificial glutamic acid)?

 

Natural log-cultivated dried shiitake in Japan are substantially produced through organic cultivation.
