  • Patent number: 11058136
    Abstract: Low-salt processed foods or drinks frequently taste like something is missing because of the less salty taste thereof. Although salt substitutes and flavoring agents are often used to offer a sense of satisfaction, these additives exhibit only limited effects or cause some troubles of, for example, changing the original flavor of food. Under these circumstances, the present invention addresses the problem of enhancing the salty taste of a low-salt processed food or drink without imparting any undesired taste thereto. To solve the above problem, the present inventors conducted intensive studies and, as a result, found that an effect of comfortably and naturally enhancing salty taste can be achieved by adding a composition, which comprises dietary fibers, in particular, glucan and mannan at a specific ratio, to common processed foods or drinks including low-salt processed foods or drinks.
