Umami Heat is the ultimate flavor enhancer — bringing both savory, umami-rich ingredients and a zesty punch of chiles together with a carefully curated blend of spices, seeds, and citrus. Umami, meaning deliciousness in Japanese, is the fifth taste which amplifies how we experience sweet, sour, salty and bitter. And a proprietary blend of chiles brings the Heat. Like our signature line of oo’mämē Chile Crisps, we have perfectly blended the ingredients so this versatile combo will level up any dish with every dash.
Our Umami Heat blend celebrates a traditional Japanese Shichimi Togarashi. A 17th century seven-spice blend, Shichimi Togarashi was born in an herb shop and dispensed by pharmacies, as a remedy. Today it’s a remedy for dull dining! Shichi (meaning seven), mi (taste), Togarashi (dried chiles) is a Japanese dried spice blend that combines the heat of chiles with umami-laden nori and blends it with citrus and seeds. Resuscitate any dish with a hit of heat — Umami Heat!
Umami Heat is sold in a resealable 2-ounce pouch.
