Yeast extracts are used in the food industry to enhance and shape the taste of a recipe in a natural way, to fine-tune savoury dishes or to increase the natural savoury flavors and umami taste sensations. However, the Yeast Extract role goes beyond taste. Yeast is a healthy ingredient, indeed, which may reduce salt and sugar use in food, improving the nutritional profile and lowering salt in the diet.
Beside, the increasing demand for “free-from” diets are urging food producers to find alternative ingredients, which could cope the requirements of vegetarians, vegans, gluten free, etc.
