Taste Enhancers


HVP is a taste enhancer with an umami flavor that boosts the meaty and savory flavor of processed food. As a plant-based flavor enhancer, it is a great alternative to MSG because it has a cleaner label.

What are Hydrolyzed Vegetable Proteins (HVP)?

Hydrolyzed Vegetable Proteins (HVP) are natural taste enhancers as well as ideal ingredients used in many formulations. HVPs in our line are vegan and have a typical broth taste that works to boost the meaty and savory flavor of foods.
Hydrolyzed vegetable proteins are produced when a plant such as soy or rapeseed is boiled in hydrochloric acid and then neutralized with sodium hydroxide.
They are considered natural additives which are used to give the flavor of many processed foods such as soups, snack foods, burgers, seasonings, instant and frozen food products.
ARTE Foods does not use GMO raw materials and strictly complies to the EU legal limits of trace materials.

Where are HVPs used?

HVPs are used to intensify the flavor of a variety of food products including soups, gravy, sauces, stews, bouillon cubes, beef products, processed meat products, flavored nuts, and any chips products. HVPs are also used to retain the flavor of specific food products which may be lost during canning, freezing, or drying process. Seasoning and flavoring formulations are also very suitable for HVPs.
Food manufacturers often use HVP in place of monosodium glutamate (MSG).
