AjiPanda™: Your Best Friend in the Kitchen

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. 

Ajinomoto’s new campaign, which also features teen queen Kathryn Bernardo, presents the benefits of its dependable brand of seasoning to a new generation of cooks and food lovers.

AJI-NO-MOTO® comes from sugar cane, corn or cassava and is manufactured through the natural process of fermentation. This product is safe, convenient and effective in making food taste delicious. 

This is because it is simply free glutamate, the most common among amino acids (the building blocks of protein). It provides the taste of umami to food in the same way that sugar adds sweet taste or salt adds salty taste to food.

But what is umami? 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. 

Remember that AjiPanda™, your best friend in the kitchen, 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.

  1. Girl, musta naman?hehehehe! Happy Blogging parin! Kampay!

  2. Umami - the best flavor there is! For me it's the linamnam ng utak ng buto (bone marrow) and I read somewhere in the net that breastmilk tastes like this? Im not sure, but if it is, oh wow laging sosyal ang food ni baby! Hehe

  3. I grew up on Ajinomoto. I love how it makes dishes really good. We've been trying to lower our sodium for health reasons nowadays, which is why we aren't using any enhancer for a while.

  4. Cooking is never complete without Ajinomoto ^-^

  5. We rarely use seasonings at home. We use sugar and a dash of salt to bring out the flavor most of the time.

  6. Ahh thats umami means pala. i remember ajinomoto when my mom using it when I was still a little. Will definitely check their recipes. Thank you for sharing! :)

  7. Even as a kid I would see Ajinomoto in our kitchen. It gets better :)

  8. This sounds interesting. I don't normally cook with Ajinomoto, though.

  9. Ang cute lang ng new branding! It's a wise thing to do, targeting the new generation of cooks and kitchen divas.


Thank you for the joyful comments!
