It was reported previously that tricholomic acid and ibotenic acid (new flycidal amino acids isolated from Tricholoma muscarium KAWAMURA and Amanita strobiliformis (Paul) Quel, respectively) have a very good taste.
The characteristics of the taste were examined in details, and the followings were observed:
1. Taste potency of the new amino acids are much stronger than that of sodium inosinate and sodium glutamate.
2. There are synergistic actions between new amino acids and 5′-ribonucleotides.
3. DL-erythro-tricholomic acid (synthesized) has an extremely strong delicious taste, but its threo isomer has not.
