Yeast Extracts

With the development of human society and material fulfillment, people increasingly pay more attention to food safety and quality. In terms of dietary consumption, we no longer just simply look for filling our stomachs but instead search for an all-around satisfaction such as mouth feel deliciousness, a delight and healthier diet with better nutrition value, and carefully choose what ingredients were used.

Human has a safety track record of using yeast in food and beverage for more than 4000 years.   Recently, yeast extracts have gradually become the mainstream flavor ingredient in the international food industry and today’s diet. Yeast extract is a common name for the extracted material from baker’s yeast, brewer’s yeast, torula yeast, or others, which is a nutritional versatile flavor agent and enhancer through the enzymatic reaction with yeast.  Yeast extract is a natural compound of many essential components to what our body needs, such as protein, peptides, amino acids, flavor nucleotides,  vitamin group B, minerals, and trace elements (BCAA).

With over 35 years of advantages in continuous and fed-batch fermentation of pursuing maximize our yeast RNA production, Zhen-Ao built its proprietary production platform with an outstanding technical team from the United States, Germany, and China. Borrowing from our unique fermentation processes, yeast strains, and the experience being the global leading infant formula nucleotide supplier over the years, ZABT had successfully developed the “high nuclear yeast extract series” with absolutely no exogenous addition.  Our natural nucleotide (I and G) content can naturally reach 30% or higher. Our YE product performs particularly prominent in two aspects, Umami (the 5th.– umami and savory taste) and Kokumi taste sensation (the 6th.– long-lasting and fullbody richness taste). We aggregate both taste sensations into our yeast extracts, and they worked soundly in many food applications.

Global Trend – Salt Reduction

With the development of medical science and WHO’s strong advocacy, the world is on a low salt-diet/reduction trend. A rough statistic in 2012 showed that over 200 million Chinese suffered from hypertension and related blood vessel disease, and the number is incremented by 10 million people every year. One major and the most direct factor is high sodium consumption. Our kidney helps to remove unwanted fluids by filtering our blood, and any extra fluid will be sucked out.   A high salt diet raises the amount of sodium in our blood and destroys its delicate balance, lowering the functionality of your kidney to remove the water. The result is high blood pressure and an extra burden on the kidney.

According to a new guideline of W.H.O.:

The average adult should intake no more than 5 grams of salt or 2 grams of sodium per day.

Our research has shown today’s average salt consumption by region:

  • Europeans and Americans consume about 9 grams of salt per day.
  • Indians consume about 9.3 grams of salt per day.
  • Chinese (urban population) consumes about 11.3 grams of salt per day and 17 grams of salt per day for the population in some suburban areas.

It’s time to stop your high salt consumption!
