Calcium guanylate is a compound with formula Ca(C10H12O4N5PO4). It is the calcium salt of guanylic acid.
As a food additive, it is used as a flavor enhancer and has the E number E629.

[Function & Characteristics]:
Flavour enhancer. Guanylic acid and guanylates do not have the specific umami taste but strongly enhance many other flavours, thereby reducing the amounts of salt needed in a product.
[Side effects]:
Asthmatic people should avoid guanylic acid and guanylates. As guanylates are metabolised to purines, they should be avoided by people suffering from gout. However, the concentrations used are generally so low that no effects are to be expected.

[Apperance]:white crystalline powder

[Usage]:used as flavor enhancers to provide the umami taste
