Dark Horse Organic - Umami Powder
Umami is the Japanese concept of a “pleasant savory taste” which spreads across the mouth, enveloping the whole of the palate. Umami is a subtle sensory experience, which harmonizes the four basic tastes, and complements the unique deliciousness of all flavors. The traditional Japanese Dashi broth is made with dried seaweeds, mushrooms and bonito. Here, they replace the bonito with smoked, grilled and dehydrated organic vegetables, medicinal mushrooms and tonic herbs for this - a high-vibe, Umami-rich, plant-based blend. Use as little or as much as you like to add flavor to soups, sauces, broth and dressings or lightly sprinkle over the top of vegetables, grains and salads.
Dark Horse was started by a chef in California inspired by the Japanese flavours his grandparents served him as a child. Everything Greg ate as a kid was spiked with soy sauce and at times, ketchup. This Japanese style of cooking that includes western condiments is called Yoshuku. As an adult he created his own cuisine through the Yoshoku lens of childhood while combining modern & ancient traditions. Dehydrating, pickling, and fermenting in order to create round and umami flavors that paint cuisine was void of. His aim is to provide organic pantry staples without added sugars or preservatives, while focusing on sustainability - using only glass jars which they encourage their customers to repurpose.
