Yeast Extract Production Cost Analysis 2020

Yeast extracts are composed of the cell contents of yeast without the cell walls. They are utilised as food additives or flavourings or as nutrients for bacterial culture media. They are often utilised to make savoury flavours. They can be found in a large variety of packaged food, like frozen meals, crackers, snack foods, gravy, stock, etc. Yeast extracts are rich in B vitamins (although not B12) and, thus, are of particular importance to both the vegans as well as vegetarians. They contain glutamic acid. The liquid forms of yeast extracts can be dried to a light paste or a dry powder. Skincare companies like Orved, Kiehl's, REN, and SkinCeuticals also utilise yeast extracts in their products.

The production method to make yeast extract was invented in the nineteenth century by Justus von Liebig. Yeast cells are heated until they rupture, then the cells' digestive enzymes break their proteins down into simpler compounds like amino acids and peptide. This method is called autolysis. The insoluble cell walls are then removed by centrifuge, filtered, and usually spray dried.
