Savory Taste Alliance Touts Benefits Of Yeast-Fortified Snacks

February 18, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The STA, the PR arm of the European Association for Specialty Yeast Products, is on a mission to boost ‎awareness of yeast extract and provide the U.S. food industry with information about yeast extract as a food ingredient. The organization says naturally-occurring yeast extract is a versatile ingredient that can improve, intensify, and deepen the flavor of both savory and sweet snacks. Other benefits of yeast extract: enrichment of flavor without added salt; it is clean label, made through the autolysis of baker’s, brewer’s or Torula yeast; it is a common household ingredient, familiar to most consumers; it is an animal-free ingredient, perfect for vegetarian or vegan-friendly offerings; it is a healthy source of protein and vitamin B; and its three forms – liquid, paste or powder – make it easy to add another dimension of flavor to snacks. The umami flavor it provides varies from buttery to roasted, grilled, cheesy, or fatty.
