Here, inside the lab at the biotechnology startup MycoTechnology , a few dozen Erlenmeyer flasks slowly gyrate on shake tables. They're filled with a liquid the color and consistency of cloudy bone broth, a slurry of growth media and, yep, mushrooms. You could be with just a tiny sprinkle of the stuff. It works on the molecular level, bonding to taste receptors on your tongue and blocking signals to your brain that translate to perceiving bitterness.

Bitter blockers reduce or block the bitter taste of food products. Bitter blockers have the ability to enhance the overall flavor of food and beverages. Bitter blockers contain Adenosine 5' Monophosphate which is involved in the reactions of intracellular energy transfer. Bitter blockers, when dissolved in food products, prevent the tongue from experiencing bitter taste. The bitter taste is appreciated in food products such as beer, dark chocolate, wine, and coffee. But some products have extra bitter activating components causing an undesirable taste.

Australian and New Zealand manufacturers are increasingly faced with the challenges of reducing sugar within new product developments, often resulting in off and undesirable flavours being produced. Now there is a solution, ClearTaste, a natural bitter blocker derived from mushrooms. ClearTaste is completely water soluble and acts as a true bitter blocker, blocking 11 of the 26 bitter receptors on the tongue. This gives formulators a great deal of freedom when faced with the current challenges of sugar reduction as it eliminates astringent and sour notes, along with metallic and other general off flavours in a myriad of applications. ClearTaste also aids in mouthfeel, which is an added benefit.
