Frequently Asked Questions
What exactly is yeast extract?
You may have already heard of yeast extract. It’s a common sight on supermarket shelves and can be found in almost every household. But what is it exactly? Yeast extracts are made from the same yeast that’s used to make beer or bread, and it’s used as food additives or flavourings.
They have a distinct savoury flavour profile known as umami. Yeast extract is also known to be salty. So, it’s used as a salt alternative when cooking.
Yeast extract also happens to have a very high B vitamin content. This is great news for pregnant women because sometimes they need to take in more vitamin B, and yeast extract is a more affordable source for it.
