Functional Proteins

Inactive yeast is a rich source of proteins with an amino acid composition close to that of fish oils and soybean meal.

Inactive yeast is a rich source of proteins, vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates and nucleotides. The amino acid composition of yeast protein is close to that of fish oils and soybean meal and it shows a high digestibility in animals. Inactive yeast is, therefore, a good sustainable source of protein that can replace traditional protein sources. As additional benefits, inactive yeast also contains other nutrients, and has been reported to improve palatability and increase the health status of animals.
