Home Scelta Umami


Did you know that a large part of every cultivated mushroom is thrown away? That is a waste of these delicious mushrooms!
Instead of wasting them, we let trucks full of mushroom stems travel to Belfeld, the home of the Scelta Umami factory. Here, flavourings are extracted from the remaining mushroom pieces and processed into mushroom concentrate, a completely natural product. It comes in two forms: liquid and powdered. A powdered concentrate is obtained by spray drying, while a liquid concentrate is thickened into various thicknesses for different applications. Perfect for enhancing the taste of many applications in a natural way!


At this facility we produce mushroom based flavouring products!
