UMAi Dry

UMAi Dry® is a scientifically-proven and chef tested, unique European technology that allows anyone to create custom dry aged steak at home. The material forms a bond with the proteins on the surface of the beef allowing moisture to permeate out while blocking oxygen and off-flavors. With UMAi Dry® technology you can successfully create the ultimate Dry Aged Steak, Salumi, or Charcuterie in any well-ventilated cooler or refrigerator without risk of spoilage.

In the beginning there was the “dry world.”

Dry aged beef was the norm. Beef carcasses were allowed to hang in a locker for a few weeks after slaughter to become more tender and flavourful. During dry-aging, moisture evaporates from the muscle creating a mature beef flavour. The meat’s natural enzymes break down the fibrous, connective tissue in the muscle thereby tenderizing it. While traditional ‘dry world’ aging practices have a positive impact on flavour and tenderness, today they require specialized facilities to maintain modern requirements for food safety and consistent quality.

The ‘wet world’ came with advances in plastics and vacuum packaging. In today’s modern processing plants, the carcass is broken down and vacuum-sealed in moisture impermeable bags. Beef can be “wet aged” in a vacuum-sealed bag in its own juices for improved tenderness, but it will be missing the characteristic dry aged depth of flavour and rich texture.

“UMAi DrybagSteak® technology allows beef to age and still achieve the same bold, beefy flavour and tender texture as traditional open-air dry ageing.”

UMAi Dry® technology was a proud winner of The National Restaurant Association’s first annual ‘Food & Beverage Product Innovations Award’, which recognizes progressive food and beverage products that will make a significant impact in the restaurant industry.
