  • Publication number: 20200221743
    Abstract: An object of the present invention is to provide a fermented seasoning containing 5?-nucleotides derived from fermentation at a high concentration without externally adding 5?-nucleotides and a method of producing the same. In a case where the nucleic acids are externally added, display of additives is indispensable on an ingredients description, and thus it cannot be said that the fermented seasoning have no chemical seasoning additive or made by natural brewing; however, with the fermented seasoning relating to the present invention, it is unnecessary to display additives on the ingredients description, and thus it is possible to appeal an added value to nature oriented or natural oriented consumers.
