More than a century ago, the Japanese chemist Kikunae Ikeda noticed that dashi broth made from kombu seaweed had a different flavor than anything else. It is not sour, salty, bitter, or sweet – it is different, a special one. Many other people agreed with the discoverer too. Thus, the fifth taste was identified and recognized – umami, which is well known to all connoisseurs of Japanese cuisine.
Umami, or natural glutamate, has a pleasant protein flavor. You can recognize it in chicken, mushrooms, green peas, and tomatoes. The taste of umami is born during fermentation processes, that is why it always feels in cheeses, cured meats, but most of all its taste is vivid in soy sauce.
