So, what is disodium ribonucleotides?

Disodium ribonucleotides, also known as disodium 5'-ribonucleotides, is a flavor enhancer commonly used in processed foods. It is a mixture of various ribonucleotides, including guanosine 5'-monophosphate (GMP) and inosine 5'-monophosphate (IMP), which are naturally occurring nucleotides found in many foods such as meat, fish, and vegetables. Disodium ribonucleotides are added to foods to enhance their umami taste and improve overall flavor. They are often used in conjunction with monosodium glutamate (MSG) to provide a more complex and robust flavor profile. Disodium ribonucleotides are generally considered safe for consumption, but some individuals may experience adverse reactions such as headaches or allergic reactions.
