Jia Hor Seasoning: Great Taste and Good Health

Sunday, 1 January 2012

Do you cook? What do you use to enhance the flavors or taste of your food? Salt? Oyster sauces? MSG?

Gourmet powder is a common type of food flavouring that contains monosodium glutamate (more popularly known as MSG) as its main composition. It is mostly used to enhance the taste of some cuisines, notably Chinese dishes, as well as for preparing broths and sauces.

The Impact of Gourmet Powder on Human Body

Though MSG has long been classified as a safe food ingredient by the US Food & Drug Administration (FDA), its use and impact on the human health remains controversial.

MSG symptom complex, or the so-called Chinese Restaurant Syndrome, is a collection of symptoms which may include:
  • headache
  • flushing on the face or other parts of the body
  • sweating
  • a sensation of pressure in the mouth or face.
The less common but more serious symptoms include:
  • swelling of the throat
  • chest pain
  • heart palpitations
  • shortness of breath.
Most people recover from mild cases of Chinese Restaurant Syndrome with no serious harm.

Introducing Jia Hor Seasoning

Jia Hor Seasoning is a formulation that is of 100% natural origin and does not contain any chemical additives. As such, in contrast to other food flavourings, it will never bring about such side-effects as thirst, headache, listlessness or hair loss. In that sense, Jia Hor Seasoning is a food flavouring that we can absolutely count on as far as safe consumption is concerned. This seasoning differentiates itself from common flavouring powders in that it is composed of a mix of ingredients that work perfectly well for all styles of dishes. It is researched and developed by the Biotechnology R&D Institute of Shuang Hor Group.

Jia Hor Seasoning's ingredients are all-natural and are perfectly suited for both vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes. They include:

1) Ganoderma japonicum extract
2) Gynostemma pentaphyllum extract
3) Shitake extract
4) Yeast powder
5) Seaweed extract.

Instead of the strong odour typically associated with the great majority of gourmet powders, Jia Hor Seasoning produces a mildly sweet unique flavour, which enhances the taste of the food cooked with it. Apart from that, this seasoning offers 14 types of amino acids, vitamins B1 and B2, and various minerals, which give many health benefits to our body.

As Jia Hor Seasoning is purely natural extracts, it is highly soluble and hence does not form lumps of precipitation. It is very easy to use in enhancing the taste of your food, whichever way you cook them - boiling, stirring, braising, roasting, steaming or frying; western or oriental style. Another plus point is it is capable of getting rid of the stinking smell of meat and seafood. This makes it ideal to be used as seasoning.

Irrespective of judging it from the perspective of composition, flavour or product features, Jia Hor Seasoning is far more superior to many other food flavouring sold in the market. The reason is it not only makes your food more flavorful, it is also very versatile and gives many health benefits.
