Starches, yeast extracts, hydrolyzed vegetable proteins (HVP), hydrolyzed animal proteins (HAP), and monosodium glutamate (MSG) are some of the most commonly used savory ingredients across the food and beverages industry. They are mainly used in the production of instant and food, meat products, and seasonings. Their utilization helps increase the product shelf-life and minimize the salt content in food preparation. Additionally, these ingredients are highly cost-effective and are easily available across the online and offline organized retail channels.
