Yeast extract - Key ingredient for beverages

Peng Yin

As an increasing need for natural, low-calorie drinks that deliver on taste, Angel Yeast Extract R&D lab has launched a range of flavor-enhancing products and solutions to address consumers' demand for both nutrition and taste.


Natural Origin Ingredient

Yeast extract(YE) has been widely used as a powerful flavor booster in the food and beverage industry. It is produced from the food-grade baker’s yeast of the species Saccharomyces cerevisiae containing high-quality protein and carbohydrate. Then enzymes in the yeast break down the proteins, releasing multiple flavor ingredients, such as amino acids, flavor peptide, and polysaccharides, etc. It is all-natural and completely free from any genetically modified source material.

Taste Improvement

The application experts of Angel Yeast Extract Division have launched two new products: Functional YE KA327 and KA329, which are specially designed to improve the taste profile in sweet products. The newly launched products contain non-volatile functional substances such as protein, carbohydrate, polypeptides, reducing sugars, vitamins, micronutrients, vitamin B 15, theanine, inositol, etc., which determine the characteristic aroma and taste of yeast extract (YE).

Hou-feel YE KA327 and KA329 can strengthen the authentic flavor of yogurt and coffee, mask the off-notes coming from sweeteners in sugary drinks to make the end products taste more natural and well-rounded.

Sugar Reduction

With the help of Hou-feel series' yeast extract, the beany notes of soy milk, stimulating sensation of citric acid and acetic acid and the bitter aftertaste of green tea can be effectively curbed, a richer and rounder mouthfeel can be guaranteed. With a combination of stevioside, yeast extract effectively masks the liquorice flavor and cooling sensation while realizing a sugar reduction up to 30% without compromising on taste.

Nutritional and color protection

KA327 and KA329 are not only acting as a flavor modulator in the beverage industry, but they are also acting as a functional ingredient containing a large number of nutritional substances, such as glutathione, selenium,γ-amino acid, beta-glucan, and B vitamins, that are beneficial for human health. The selenium-rich yeast extract helps protect the color of Barley grass juice and green tea.

By adding just a small amount of yeast extract in finished products can bring out the highly intensified sweetness, prolonged lingering taste, and enriched nutritional contents. Yeast extract is a safer, cleaner, healthier and more eco-friendly choice than synthetic additives.
