A FLAVOR BURST OF ANCHOVY


Standing apart from traditional tastes such as sweet, sour or salty, Sokol offers an undeniably superior flavor that appeals to our fifth taste sense, umami. These delicious and naturally fermented ingredients are included in our Certified Savory product line. With over 30 years of experience providing anchovy in various applications, it’s safe to say that we’ve managed to create an enjoyable umami flavor—without the fishy aftertaste.

ANCHOVY PASTE


One thing we’ve learned from three decades of formulating with anchovy is how it can be incorporated into dressings, sauces and dips to enhance Mediterranean cuisine with Caesar-inspired products. Our Certified Savory anchovy products are cured for a minimum of six months, to enhance their freshest qualities and minimize fishiness.

FEATURES & BENEFITS


Anchovies contain vitamins and minerals that may provide significant health benefits. While typically used in cooking, it can also be used in powder form like a spice for an extra dash of flavor.

USAGE & APPLICATION


Designed to coat a variety of applications with distinct umami flavor, you can achieve the anchovy taste with a light sprinkle of anchovy powder over desired food dishes.

FISH SAUCE


As one of the main flavorings in Southeast Asian foods, the umami taste of fish sauce is astounding. What makes it so unique? Fish sauce can reduce sourness and bitterness while increasing salty and sweet flavor notes. Sokol’s culinary experts find the perfect balance between flavors with fish sauce ingredients and are well-versed in telling when undesirable fermented flavors become apparent.

750 X550 ANCHOVY SAUCE

FEATURES & BENEFITS


Naturally occurring amino acids—like glutamate—deliver a desirable umami taste in fish sauce. In fact, the umami components in fish sauce make it taste “salter,” requiring less salt to reach an ideal taste level. The protein in fish sauce also helps expedite browning in fried or grilled foods, for perfectly cooked umami cuisine.

USAGE & APPLICATION


Dipping sauces and marinade recipes typically call for about 10% fish sauce, which may also improve browning on the grill or in the pan. Our Certified Savory fish sauce powder can be added to a dry seasoning blend or marinade rub. Use it as an umami enhancer in sensitive wet applications, for a desirable fish sauce flavor and odor.

EFFECTIVE PACKAGING FORMATS


We use oxygen barrier packaging to ship our anchovy and fish products. This state-of-the-art packaging format has been proven to prevent the formation of post-processing, oxidized fishy flavors in our product.
