Ascentra® Sodium-Reducing Flavor Enhancer

Ascentra® is a clean label dairy powder that naturally amplifies the perception of salt and other savory nuances in a broad range of food systems as it lowers sodium content. By enhancing existing savory flavors, Ascentra yields a richer, more rounded flavor than is available through traditional, all-salt formulas.

Made from a proprietary, whole milk-based fermentation process, Ascentra is gluten-free and contains no monosodium glutamate (MSG), hydrolysed vegetable protein (HVP) or yeast extract.

This versatile ingredient can also help reduce ingredient costs by providing opportunities to replace higher-cost ingredients with more economical ones.
