Yeast Extracts

With the development of better material life and human society, people increasingly pay more attention to safety and quality. In terms of food consumption, we no longer just simply look for filling our stomachs but begin to search for an all-around package of deliciousness, the healthier diet with better nutrition value to delight our lifestyle.

In recent years, Yeast Extracts have gradually become the mainstream flavor ingredient in the international food industry and today’s diet. Yeast extract is a common name of the extracted material from baker’s yeast, brewer’s yeast, torula yeast or others, is a nutritional versatile flavor agent and enhancer through the reaction of pacemaker enzymes with yeast; the main components of yeast extracts, such as peptides, amino acids, flavor nucleotides,  vitamin group B, minerals, and trace elements (BCAA), are an excellent natural and balancing combination of nutrition and taste.

With over 30 years of advantages in the hands-on autolyze and the continuous fermentation, Zhen-Ao adopted GEA and Alfa Laval centrifuges and other advanced production equipment and cooperated with an outstanding technical team from the United States, Germany, and China to develop a series of yeast extract products. Because of our unique fermentation processes, yeast strains, and the experience being the global leading infant formula nucleotide supplier over the years, Zhen-Ao had successfully developed the “high nuclear yeast extract series” with absolutely no exogenous adding of IMP and GMP.  Our natural nucleotide (I and G) content can naturally reach 18% 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 richness taste). We aggregate both taste sensations into our yeast extracts, and they worked soundly in many food applications.

Global Salt Reduction Trend

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 due to 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, lower the functionality of your kidney to remove the water. The result is high blood pressure.

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!
