Food Ingredients

Yeast Extract

Yeast extract. It is a water-soluble powder of free peptides and amino acids, which is formed as a result of heating yeast with the addition of enzymes, followed by the removal of cell walls.


It contains glutamic, inosinic and guanylic acid in its composition. Due to this property, it is widely used in the food industry as an additive in the manufacture of sauces and fast food.

Yeast extract has a rich taste very similar to meat broth.

Yeast extract significantly reduces the use of salt and is considered a natural flavor enhancer.

Active yeast

Active Yeast. It is used in the manufacture of baking, winemaking, distillation, production of ethanol and beverages. The alcohols, enzymes and acids produced by yeast also cause the dough to mature, stretching the protein as a result of chemical reactions. Yeast improves the dough in other ways, for example, giving it a characteristic taste.

Inactive brewer’s yeast

Inactive brewer’s Food Yeast Obtained as a result of the production process in the brewing industry. Produced by spray drying with pre-sieving. Brewer’s yeast contains hop polyphenols, rich in B vitamins, potassium, zinc, selenium. DNA and RNA. Brewer’s yeast is used to maintain metabolism, strengthen immunity and well-being. Improve the absorption capacity and intestinal function.

Brewer’s yeast is used in the production of biologically active additives, in sports nutrition and cosmetology.

Deactivated baking yeast

Deactivated baking yeast. They are made from pure baking yeast by spraying with pre-activation. They contain a large amount of glutathione. It is used in the food and bakery industry. Deactivated yeast — has a high ability as a reducing agent of the gluten framework when rolling out and retains the uniform shape of the dough, as well as improves quality and taste.

The dosage of deactivated yeast is 0.1 — 0.3% of the flour weight.

Nutritional yeast

“Nutritional yeast” – “Saccharomyces cerevisiae” is a natural, nutritional supplement in the form of yeast flakes. A complete source of protein, essential amino acids, B vitamins, as well as potassium, chromium and selenium. Food yeast is used as a seasoning in vegetarian cuisine.

The taste of food yeast resembles cheese with nutty notes.

Yeast autolysate/hydrolysate.

Yeast autolysate is used as a rich source of nutrients such as proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins, fiber, nucleotides, minerals and other trace elements. Yeast autolysis and hydrolysis products contain both soluble (extract) and insoluble (cell wall) yeast fractions. Autolysates or hydrolysates of yeast or their soluble or insoluble fractions are widely used in the food industry. For example, functional drinks, bread, ready-to-eat soups, snacks and a variety of sauces and other food products.
