Yeast extract: a valuable ingredient
in food and beverage formulation

Yeast extract is a valuable ingredient and is commonly used for its wide variety of powerful taste properties in many food and beverage applications: soups and broths, sauces and dressings, snacks and seasonings, fish, meat & analogues, beverages, dairy products, sweet products, starchy goods.

Along with this diversity of applications comes many formulation and process challenges. The wide variety of yeast extract flavor profiles and properties allows unlimited clean label product formulations. It also contributes to solving important challenges:

  • Improve taste to provide flavorful recipes
  • Contribute to develop healthy formulations: reduce sugar, salt, fat
  • Mask off-notes: sweeteners, proteins
  • Comply with specific diets: organic, vegetarian, vegan


Whatever the nature of your challenge, the Biospringer Culinary Center food technologists are here to support you during product development.
