E633 — пищевая добавка, усилитель вкуса: инозинат кальция, calcium inosinate (Е633)

Calcium inosinate is the calcium salt of inosinic acid, otherwise known as IMP, which is a nucleoside that is important in metabolism. It is essentially an odourless white or off-white crystal or powder that is slightly soluble in water.

Calcium salt of inosinic acid (E630), a natural acid, that is mainly present in animals. Commercially prepared from meat or fish (sardines). May also be produced by bacterial fermentation of sugars. Flavour enhancer. Inosinic acid and inosinates do not have the specific umami taste but strongly enhance many other flavours, thereby reducing the amounts of salt or other flavour enhancers needed in a product. Used in many products. Mainly used in low sodium/salt products. Acceptable daily intake (ADI): None determined. Inosinates may not be used in products intended for children under 12 weeks. Asthmatic people should avoid inosinates. As inosinates are metabolised to purines, they should be avoided by people suffering from gout. However, the concentrations used are generally so low that no effects are to be expected.
