Title:
Systematic studies of structure and physiological activity of alapyridaine. A novel food-born taste enhancer 
Abstract:
By application of taste dilution analysis (+)-(S)-1-(1-carboxyethyl)-5-hydroxy-2-(hydroxymethyl)-pyridinium inner salt was recently successfully identified as a multimodal taste enhancer in beef bouillon. While being taste-less on its own, this so-called alapyridaine was found to intensify the human perception of sweet, salty, and umami taste. To gain information on the molecular requirements of this novel class of taste enhancer, a range of structurally related pyridinium betaines were synthesi...    »
