Unlike humans, these animals did not show a large synergism between monosodium glutamate (MSG) and disodium guanylate (GMP) or disodium inosinate (IMP). The taste nerve responses of these animals to umami substances were not differentiated from the salt responses. The canine taste system was sensitive to umami substances and showed a large synergism between MSG and GMP or IMP. The umami substances showed no… CONTINUE READING
