Inoculation of Zygosaccharomyces rouxii into a soy sauce mash free from lactic acid bacteria at 106 cells mL 1 resulted in the formation of the flavour-active compound HEMF over a number of days at 30°C. Delays in inoculation up to 14 days after production of the mash greatly increased the amount of HEMF formed and under some conditions concentrations in the commercial range were achieved without addition of any other microorganisms.
