Executive Summary
Flavour enhancers are used to exaggerate flavours, in foods and beverages. Flavour enhancers alter the sense of taste in the food without adding any substantial flavour of its own. There are two types of flavor enhancer such as natural and artificial. Natural flavor enhancers are derived from plants and herbs or the raw material of animals. Artificial flavour enhancers are developed from synthetic sources to mimic common flavors.

Flavour enhancers are largely obtained from natural fermentation or extraction from cereals. The various food applications in which flavor enhancer is used are snacks, soups, rice, pasta, noodles, beverages, etc. The different types of flavour enhancers are Monosodium Glutamate (MSG), Hydrolyzed Vegetable Proteins (HVP), Yeast Extracts and Nucleotides.

Monosodium Glutamate (MSG), is one of the chief flavor enhancers that is used as a flavor in protein rich food. MSG is a sodium salt of glutamic acid, produced by fermenting corn, sugar cane, sugar beet, wheat, tapioca, etc, mainly used as a flavour enhancers to increase the taste of umami (savoury taste) in protein rich food such as fish, meat, etc. Hydrolyzed vegetable protein, or HVP, is produced by boiling cereals or legumes, such as soy, corn, or wheat, in hydrochloric acid and then neutralizing the solution with sodium hydroxide. Yeast extract is the general name for various yeast products made by removing cell walls of the yeast culture and using the cell contents as food additives, flavorings and nutritional supplements.
