Brings out taste and flavour of your recipe

Yeast extracts – natural ingredients to bring out the flavour and taste of your recipe

Yeast extracts are derived from a natural source - fresh yeast. They bring out the flavour and taste in foods and beverages thanks to a unique combination of proteins, peptides, and amino acids which are naturally present in the yeast cell. Together, these compounds provide a pleasant brothy, umami note and support the savoury character of your recipe. Yeast extracts are naturally rich in glutamic acid, an amino acid known to elicit 'umami taste' which is, next to sweet, sour, salty and bitter, one of the five basic taste sensations humans can perceive. Umami is described as 'delicious savoury taste' and in foods, greatly brings out saltiness or sweetness and savoury flavours. It also contributes to complexity and overall longer lasting flavour sensations.

High nucleotide yeast extracts – efficient and versatile flavour solutions

Ohly high nucleotide yeast extracts represent our most efficient and versatile flavour solutions. They are unique with their neutral taste and aroma and are added at extremely low levels. We use them in classic savoury (soups, seasonings, sauces) and in sweet recipes. Examples are fruit drinks, fruit preparations or ready to drink coffee preparations. The efficiency of our high nucleotide yeast extracts is explained by the unique taste synergism between 5´-nucleotides and glutamic acid, which are natural building blocks of the yeast RNA and proteins, respectively. For this reason, Ohly high nucleotide yeast extracts are effective ingredients for salt reduction, MSG replacement or masking off-tastes associated with high intensive sweeteners (e.g. Stevia, aspartame/acesulfame K).
