Brings out taste and flavour of your recipe

Ohly offers a wide selection of flavours especially designed for your application. From soups to condiments, meat alternatives to seasoning – our yeast-based products provide a rich taste of their own, and are globally recognised as effective clean-label solutions. Our selection of Dark Yeast Extracts produce intense roasted meaty notes and dark colour. Ohly yeast extracts are typically used at very low dosages, making them efficient and versatile ingredients for your recipe.

Under the original brand name OHLY®, we manufacture baker’s yeast extracts which are gained through a gentle autolysis process to release the protein-rich cell sap. This extract is rich in valuable amino acids, nucleotides and other useful cell constituents. Yeast extracts are used as natural flavour components in many foods as they offer intensifying and rounding of the natural flavour complex.

A second group of yeast-based flavour ingredients are derived from Torula yeast and are known under the PROVESTA® brand. Different processing routes ensure end products with different functions and flavour notes. The PROVESTA® product range includes autolysed yeasts, inactive yeasts and yeast extracts.

What is Yeast Extract?

Yeast extract is a natural ingredient that is made from the very same yeast used to make bread, beer and wine. Yeast extract has a savoury taste comparable to that of a bouillon, often making it the perfect ingredient to add taste and bring out flavours in savoury products.

Yeast is the basic ingredient of yeast extract. Natural enzymes break down yeast proteins into taste-delivering parts known as yeast extract.

It is used in the majority of savoury products available in supermarkets. Indeed, many popular sauces, bouillons, meat dishes, readymade meals and savoury snacks are refined with yeast extract.
