This would be easier to answer if you could be more specific about what you mean by "chemically." The taste would come from the growth process, it all depends on the levels of chemicals within the sprouts; depending on where they're grown and under what conditions, they will taste slightly different. Albeit that doesn't discount any manufacturing process ...


To my bitter lettuce soup I added lots of carrots, some sugar, some honey, extra peas, instant mashed potatoes, cannolini beans, some mini pastas and some apples. After all of that the soup is now tasty.


It's not just saltiness, but various taste sensitivities that are impacted by pepper. Basically, piperine (the component in black pepper which causes its pungency) and capsaicin (the "hot" chemical in hot peppers) cause mild irritation and inflammation in the mouth when consumed. That inflammation leads to additional sensitivity of taste receptors. ...


Just as cuisine is thought of in terms of sweet and savory, so too our taste receptors are subdivided into two main categories. When you taste pepper you're activating the bitter class of taste receptors responsible also for tasting salt. So it's not that the pepper brought out salt in the dish that was not already there. It's that the pepper brought out ...


Is it possible that you are confusing salty with umami? I could see pepper (and other spices) adding umami, but I don't see how it is possible to add saltiness.


MSG does have a taste on its own - umami. ElendilTheTall says in another question: As you are no doubt aware, there are 5 basic tastes - salty, sweet, sour, bitter and umami. Umami is the savoury flavour of mushrooms, cheese, cured meats, and so on. MSG is essentially 'pure' umami. In other words, MSG is to umami what salt is to salty and sugar is to ...


I've tried the baking soda and ruined the entire dish.. I would not suggest that.. I find a bit of brown sugar. and extra spices,, and cooking it like mad will reduce it.. I wont buy canned again as using fresh is the only answer here.. but those of us with cans in the pantry still want to use them up somehow..


Don't stop using bay, it's one of the most amazing ingredients ever! It gives depth and soul to anything you cook. It tastes like it smells when it's fresh. If you pick it fresh (you might as well pick a good lot of it to make it worth the effort), soak it in water and bicarb of soda, leave it to dry for 2 or 3 days and store in a jar. Use 1-2 leaves in your ...


I had the same problem for months. My final solution was to beat up the roast a bit before I put in the slow cooker, and occasionally stab a few holes in the roast so the tasty liquids can get inside. I also reuse the left over liquid as a gravy. Presentation wise the roast looks like it got hit by a truck, but who cares when every bite is juicy and tasty.


Ok I can give you an idea on what to do but it is a long shot. From what i see they use 1 Emulsifier •soy lecithin 3 Thickeners •tragacanth gum resin •apple pectin •cellulose 1 Swetener •sorbitol 1 flavour •orange flavors The rest is Vitamins. You dont need to add them. So you can use sugar instead of sorbitol. Soy lecithin should not be hard to ...
