Episode 29

Let's Talk Taste with Sherry, Saving the Earth One Flavor at a Time

As a follow up to Episode 28 where Sherry compared a beef burger to an Impossible burger, this episode goes into depth about the flavor of Umami which is the flavor of protein. It's one of the 5 categories of flavor that we experience as humans. It's not as common of a flavor buzz word as "salty" or "sweet" and most people haven't even heard of it, but i can tell you, the processed food industry knows umami well. It knows that we as humans really love the savory and meaty flavor that it provides. It's almost defines "delicious." However, when you're paying attention to your ingredients and searching for flavor backed by nutrients, umami has a giant black hole of nutrient deficient manufactured flavors that keeps you coming back for more, especially when there isn't actually protein in the product.
