A GOOD full fat GLME is well worth adding, the same as GOOD Liver and Beef powders. All pretty costly but all effective at low levels. The hard bit is finding the ones worth paying out for. Certainly cheaper/better options in if you're looking at the Deffatted GLM as a soluble element...High Nuc Yeast for one...

I would personally choose liver and/or Krill (liquid or powder) over GLM myself, both highly attractive.

GLM. I have used it, but not now. The bulk 1kg price is silly.

You also have the debate about what type is better.
The full fat, more expensive version, or the defatted cheaper version

Interesting, can you talk about things you think are as good or better or would you rather not say? I could just up the levels of pdf in the bait, but on paper some of the components of GLM are highly attractive and a lot of very good anglers and bait people rate it highly.

Never used it and will never use it:
(1) itís too expensive and there is other stuff available which is as good or better
(2) there are a couple of white papers out there testing glm vs other things and the added value of glm is limited. Some concluded it doesnít stimulate food intake for carp and trout.

Evening all, Iím looking for thoughts on GLM inclusion levels in a bait.

Iíve seen various things being suggested, from a couple of teaspoons per kg all the way up to 5% odd of a basemix, but as we know itís not a cheap ingredient and itís a balancing act with the other solubles in the mix.

2 teaspoons per kg seems low to me, would it be detectable at those levels? I wouldnít want it to be a main feature of the bait as I use a lot of it in my hookbaits and I want them to stand out a bit, but equally if Iím going to put it in I donít want it to be at such low levels that itís pointless.

Thoughts welcome. Cheers!
