Yeast extracts and inactive yeast are ingredients that can help impart beneficial characteristics to your vegetables and side dishes.
Add them in your preparation to:
- Impart umami and overall taste.
- Increase spiciness perception.
- Provide specific taste direction, such as grilled, smoked, soy sauce, etc.
- Provide longer-lasting flavor perception, while helping with sodium reduction.
- Enrich the nutritional profile of your preparation with a natural source of protein, fiber, minerals, and vitamins.
