Determination and quantification of the kokumi peptide, γ-glutamyl-valyl-glycine, in commercial soy sauces.


Recent studies have demonstrated that kokumi substances, such as glutathione, are perceived through the calcium-sensing receptor (CaSR), and screening by CaSR assay and sensory evaluation has shown that γ-glutamyl-valyl-glycine (γ-Glu-Val-Gly) is a potent kokumi peptide. In this study, the contents of γ-Glu-Val-Gly in six commercial brands of dark-coloured… (More)
