Disodium Guanylate

Is a natural disodium, sodium salt of the flavor enhancer guanosine monophosphate (GMP).


Disodium guanylate is produced from dried fish or dried seaweed and is often added to instant noodles, potato chips and other snacks, savoury rice, tinned vegetables, cured meats, and packet soup.

Disodium guanylate is not safe for babies under twelve weeks, and should generally be avoided by asthmatics and people with gout.

Food additive used as flavor enhancers to provide the umami taste.


It is linked to MSG. Umami meaning, savory.
