- Flavour – adds a contrast in the taste, sharpness/tanginess which deepens the
- Moisture – helps compensate for certain cooking techniques that tend to dry meat out like grilling or roasting.
- Adds eye appeal – brushing or pouring sauce over a dish can enhance the appearance by adding sheen & lustre. A glossy finish always makes the entire plate look good.
- Improves texture
