The Japanese loanword 旨味 umami means literally ‘good flavour’ or ‘good taste’. Umami taste is the appetitive taste. It spreads across the whole tongue instead of just one tiny part of it and provides a mouthwatering sensation. So it is a taste we all desire.

Plant-based proteins lack umami, on contrary to meat, fish and dairy. That is why umami matters in accelerating sustainability; it’s the vehicle to make plant-based food irresistible.

FAQs

Umami is one of the five basic flavours and as already mother's milk is filled with umami, we humans have a natural craving for it. Umami is the delicious flavour that makes us enjoy foods, and as it's naturally absent in most plants foods, it needs to be added to veggies, just like salt, in order for it to have the complete flavour spectrum that makes us feel satisfied after eating.

All our current products are produced in our pilot plant in the Southern Finland, Greater Helsinki area.

All of the Nordic Umami products are of 100% plant based source, created by microbes, and do not contain additives or anything artificial.

We calculate the umami level in our products by measuring glutamine amino acid. Our products have the same umami level, if not more, than their substitutes.

Umami flavour is enhanced when combined by salt. That's why our products contain salt in the first place. Another important role for the salt is to preserve the product: as we don't use additives or artificial ingredients, but want to make the product last long enough, we need the salt level to be rather high. However, the products have less salt than most of their substitutes.

Our products are made with a natural fermentation process that we have modified to function with up cycled plant ingredients. The process itself is 100% natural and it works, instead of humans, mostly by microbes.

After the products are ready, they are pastorized to lengthen the products shelf life.

Each product has its best before date on the pack. To this date the product can be stored in room's temperature unopened.

After opening, liquids need to be refrigerated and last, depending on the fridge, few weeks. Always use your senses, if your unsure of the quality of the liquid, and don't use, if you sense something to be wrong.

The Nordic Umami products don't contain anything artificial or ingredients that would not be suitable for kids. However, when cooking with the Nordic Umami products, pay attention to the salt level, as you would do with preparing any kids food.

Umami liquids are packed in a glass bottle. Recycle the bottle with coloured glass and the cap with metals.

Umami Salt is packed in a carton that can be recycled with cartons or energy waste.

Follow the recycling info of your area. Recycling codes are marked on the pack label.

The Nordic Umami products are made 80% from plant-based ingredients that are upcycled. This means that we're using veggies, herbs and fruits that otherwise would be wasted and substitute products that are made from virgin ingredients. This makes, depending on calculations, our CO2 footprint negative, but most importantly help us secure all food that's grown for humans to also end up on people's plates.

Our raw material comes from factories near by, and in the future our factories and technology will go where the raw material is, not vise versa.

As microbes do the majority of our process, we don't need to heat our factory but use the heat that these microbes create. This makes us again save energy.

We have also created a closed-loop system, which means that we're able to use all ingredients that we bring to our manufacturing process without creating further waste.

The electricity that we use is climate friendly and we recycle all our own waste, mainly office and packing waste.

Our shipping unfortunately creates emissions, but we are substituting them by purchasing carbon removal credits from Shopify Sustainability Fund to make shippings carbon-neutral. This does not require you to do anything, we've already taken care that the amount of carbon dioxide (CO) that a truck or a plane that delivers your shipment releases into the atmosphere is also sucked from the atmosphere and stored away.

We also encourage our employees an guests to think of the climate and provide electric car charging at the office.
