  • Consumers are always looking for more transparency and naturalness in their foods without compromising on taste, which remains a top driver in their purchasing decisions. Food manufacturers need to offer tasty, clean-label products.


  • The novel food market has seen a major boom in smoked product launches, with the number of new products entering the global market increasing annually by 6.1%* between 2019 and 2022. This overall annual growth rate shows that food manufacturers have high expectations when it comes to natural ingredients with a smoky note.

The market for smoked ingredients is therefore rapidly expanding.

In order to address the needs of food manufacturers, Biospringer by Lesaffre launched a new product called Springer® Signature SY101* (part of Biospringer’s Signature range), a smoky taste, yeast-based ingredient with a combination of umami and smoky notes obtained through a traditional smoking process.

Consumers can enjoy foods that taste similar to products made using traditional cooking methods such as grilling, roasting or barbecuing.

The process of smoking food is not just about taste… it also dates back thousands of years


Smoking is a well-known process which has been used for centuries to preserve foods.

  • Smoked foods are also known for their comforting taste, which makes them increasingly popular.

Figures show that 21%* of consumers would choose smoked or grilled products when they are looking for ‘comfort food’.

Smoked ingredients can be used in a wide variety of food applications that may differ from region to region. In Europe for instance, they can be added to snacks, meat products, cheese, sauces and even vegan products to impart flavors traditionally found in wood-fired cooked meat.





Springer® Signature SY101 combines innovation with an authentic and traditional smoking process


Springer® Signature SY101 is a yeast-based ingredient derived from fermentation and smoked using an authentic and traditional method.

This highly regulated process imparts distinctive and unique wood-smoke flavors while preserving those of yeast. Biospringer by Lesaffre thus offers a naturally smoked, dried autolyzed yeast that combines umami notes with smoky notes.
