AjiPanda™: Your Best Friend in the Kitchen

Do you enjoy cooking? Well, even if you won't, for sure you will use some spices and other products that will add flavor to what you are cooking. 

 I can recall back when I was small that my mom has been using Ajinamoto for cooking and she is still using it until now. Since I had been helping her to cook, I know the difference of the taste when there is no Ajinamoto seasoning or not. 


Well, today, our best friend in the kitchen now has a new look with a cute panda icon. It comes with all new packaging.

In a press release, it says that the "AjiPanda™ is a cute panda icon that conveys someone shy, caring, happy and loyal. It personifies how a humble pack or bottle of AJI-NO-MOTO® Umami Seasoning fills the role of “Your Best Friend in the Kitchen” by offering an ever-reliable way of bringing out the natural goodness of food."

Its campaign features teen queen Kathryn Bernardo, who plays the role of Ina Macaspac in "Pangako Sa'yo," wherein she works as a cook. Well, I can say that her character in the soap opera is a good fit for Ajinomoto’s new campaign. Bernardo presents  the benefits of AjiPanda™ to a new generation of cooks and food lovers.

So, you will know, "AJI-NO-MOTO® comes from sugar cane, corn or cassava and is manufactured through the natural process of fermentation. " Hence, you do not have to worry because the product is safe, convenient and effective in making food taste delicious.

You will feel more confident in using it since it is simply a free glutamate, which is the most common among amino acids (the building blocks of protein). It provides the taste of umami to food similar to how sugar adds sweet taste or salt adds salty taste to food.

Curious of what Umami is? According to AjiPanda™, "Umami, is the fifth basic taste alongside sweet, sour, bitter, and salty. It is the savory, rich and full taste we often experience in meat, seafood, cheese, tomatoes and mushrooms."

Consider the delightful composition of chicken, green papaya and malunggay in tinola or the medley of cheese, ham, pepperoni, tomatoes, green and red bell peppers on top of a pizza. The combinations and layers of these glutamate-rich ingredients make dishes very delicious and enjoyable.

Well, for sure, whenever you plan to cook, you will remember that AjiPanda™ is your best friend in the kitchen and it will help work wonders in your cooking so that you can share many happy meals with your family. Visit http://www.ajinomoto.com.ph/AjiPanda for healthy and delicious recipes.
