Nutritional Yeast for More Healthy Bread
Lallemand offers a complete range of nutritional yeast ingredients that vary in their nutritional and functional properties. Our Engevita® and Lalmin® (100% Saccharomyces cerevisiae) yeast products complement one another to help you create the nutritional profile you require for your functional food.
Our nutritional yeasts are produced by converting and/or enhancing the yeasts’ natural endogenous micronutrients to attain measurable levels of vitamins and /or minerals. These ensure the yeasts’ dosage of essential micronutrients, so our nutritional yeasts and cell-wall products can contribute significant amounts of bioavailable micronutrients essential for optimal health.
Yeast’s ability to incorporate vitamins and minerals within its cells makes it ideal for functional food formulations. Yeast’s nutrients are:
- High-quality proteins
- Bioactive compounds
- Highly bioavailable vitamins and minerals.
Compared to pure forms of selenium, zinc, and B vitamins, those vitamins and minerals found in yeast have been shown in several studies to have slower absorption rates and high bioavailability in animals and humans.
Yeast can elongate the taste sensation and smooth out top note. Yeast fibers have gelling and water and oil-binding properties and so can improve the rheological properties of food without compromising the taste or aroma.
Lallemand nutritional yeast ingredients are also:
- Vegetarian and vegan
- Allergen- and gluten-free
- Non-GMO and NGP-verified
- Kosher* and Halal*
