What is Ribotide I&G?

Ribotide I&G, also known as disodium 5'-inosinate and disodium 5'-guanylate, is a flavour enhancer commonly used in the food industry. A blend of two nucleotides, inosine monophosphate (IMP) and guanosine monophosphate (GMP), Ribotide's nucleotides can be found in various foods, including meat, fish, and vegetables. This product enhances the existing flavours in food products, providing a richer and more savoury taste.

The manufacture of Ribotide I&G occurs by fermenting sugars, such as corn or molasses, with specific strains of bacteria. During the fermentation process, the bacteria produce IMP and GMP, which are then extracted and combined to form Ribotide I&G. The production process involves careful control of temperature, pH, and other factors to ensure the purity and quality of the final product. Ribotide I&G is generally recognized as safe (GRAS) by regulatory authorities in many countries, including the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA).

As a flavour enhancer Ribotide I&G is used in the food industry to improve the taste of various food products. It enhances the existing flavours in soups, sauces, snacks, processed meats, and other food products. Ribotide I&G is often used alongside other flavour enhancers, such as monosodium glutamate (MSG), to create a synergistic effect that amplifies the overall taste and aroma of the food product.

In addition to its use in the food industry, Ribotide I&G is also used in the production of pet foods and animal feeds to improve their palatability. It is an effective and safe ingredient in food and animal feed products. As with many other ingredients, it is imperitive to use Ribotide I&G following the approved guidelines and regulations.
