  author={Sulvi Purwayanti and Murdijati Gardjito and Umar Santoso and Heru Susanto},
Taste enhancer compounds from specific ethnic culinary herbs have very little information in the literature but this is important to food scientiests because these compounds can have a positive effect on food flavour. For many years, bekkai lan leaves have been used as flavour enhancer by the Dayak people in Borneo. Alkaline extraction of crude bekkai lan leaves was done at pH 8 and the isolation of taste compounds was done using the nanofiltration membrane method. Analysis of the water-soluble… Expand

Low molecular weight compounds responsible for savory taste of Indonesian soy sauce.
Besides free l-glutamic acid and aspartic acid, free aromatic amino acids such as l-phenylalanine and l-tyrosine may also play an important role in impressing savory or umami taste of Indonesian soy sauce at their subthreshold concentrations and in the presence of salt and free acidic amino acids.
