Taste improvement

Improve the taste of food with Ohly's yeast-based solutions.

The way food tastes remains the key driver of repeat purchases. New food products stay on the market only if they are tasty and flavoursome. As consumers seek healthier and more sustainable foods, producers face various challenges with regards to taste. Reducing or replacing ingredients to make a product healthier or more sustainable can often make it difficult to retain great taste. That’s where taste improvement solutions come in.

Thanks to their unique natural composition, yeast extracts are perfect for bringing out the flavour and taste in food and beverages. Ohly is one of the leading suppliers of yeast-based ingredients to the food industry worldwide. We have been making yeast-based products since the mid 1930's, when Götz Ohly was the first to develop yeast extracts. He still lends his name to our company and our branded range of baker's yeast extracts. Today Ohly provides expertise in taste improvement and supplies highly functional yeast-based ingredients to support changing market demands. Our range of yeast extracts will highlight the existing flavour profile of food and serve as a great tool for retaining taste when removing, reducing or replacing key flavour ingredients.
