Method for reinforcing salty taste of food, food and salty taste-reinforcing agent obtained using same method

Abstract

Disclosed herein are a method for improving the saltiness of a food or drink, and the saltiness of a food or drink containing a salt and a grain. The saltiness enhancing method enhances the saltiness of salt-containing food or drink by adding a rare sugar to a raw material of the food or drink. The saltiness enhancing method is a method for reducing the salt content in a food or drink containing a salt, or a method for masking a grain odor due to a grain in a raw material of the food or drink that contains the grain as a part thereof and contains a salt. The rare sugar contains at least D-psicose.

The formula of the invention (Claims)

  1. A method for enhancing the saltiness of a food or drink containing a salt,
    the method comprising adding a rare sugar to a raw material of the food or drink containing the salt.
    The method according to claim 1, wherein the method reduces the salt content in the food or drink containing the salt.
  2. The method according to claim 1, wherein the methods masks a grain odor due to a grain in a raw material of the food or drink that contains the grain as a part thereof and contains the salt.
  3. The method according to any one of claims 1 to 3, wherein the rare sugar is a rare sugar containing at least D-psicose.
  4. The method according to claim 4, wherein the rare sugar containing at least D-psicose is a syrup.
    The method according to claim 4 or 5, wherein the rare sugar containing at least D-psicose is produced from a raw material selected from fructose, isomerized sugar, glucose, and sucrose.
  5. The method according to any one of claims 4 to 6, wherein the rare sugar containing at least D-psicose contains 0.5 to 17.0% of D-psicose.
  6. The method according to any one of claims 1 to 7, wherein the salt is at least one selected from sodium chloride, potassium chloride, magnesium chloride, calcium chloride, sodium glutamate, and sodium succinate.
  7. The method according to any one of claims 4 to 8, wherein the rare sugar containing at least D-psicose is contained in 0.01 to 46 parts by weight in terms of a solid content with respect to the total 100 parts by weight of all raw materials of the food or drink containing the salt.
  8. The method according to any one of claims 4 to 9, wherein the rare sugar is a rare sugar containing at least D-psicose, and a ratio A/B in the food or drink is 0.02 to 78, wherein A is a content of the rare sugar containing at least D-psicose (solid content, g/100 g) and B is a total content of Na, K, Ca, and Mg (g/ 100 g).
  9. A food or drink having saltiness enhanced by the saltiness enhancing method of any one of claims 1 to 10.
  10. A saltiness enhancer comprising a rare sugar containing at least D-psicose, the enhancer being used by being contained in a raw material of a food or drink containing a salt.
