Unleash the Power of Anchovy

SOKOL is proud to offer delicious anchovy as part of our Certified Savory product line. Our ingredients provide consistently superior, savory qualities that produce an unmistakable flavor burst that will set your product apart. Free amino acids suffuse these naturally fermented ingredients. These tastes stand apart from the traditional taste senses of sweetness, bitterness, sourness, and saltiness. These functional elements appeal to the new fifth taste sense: umami.

Umami describes the meaty, mouthwateringly brothy taste of glutamates and nucleotides. It earned it’s status as a scientifically recognized taste sense in 1985, though it was first coined by Kikunae Ikeda in 1903.

Sokol Custom Foods has over 30 years of experience providing anchovy ingredients for commercial dressing and sauce applications. This experience has taught us that people like the savory, umami qualities of fermented fish, but don’t like the aromatic fishiness that sometimes comes with the product. We are able to provide that memorable umami taste, without the fishiness, thanks to our technical expertise!

We’ve developed analytical tests that allow us to accurately quantify the key umami compounds. We carefully select only the finest fermented materials identified by those tests for further processing. State of the art oxygen barrier packaging prevents the formation of post-processing, oxidized fishy flavors in our Certified Savory products.

Try these products and see how you can shift your taste into 5th gear…the umami gear. See our anchovy product offerings >
