Simplicity: Real taste, nothing else

Consumers are looking for short and simple labels with ingredients they can relate to – which is where we can help with 100% natural solutions. Our ingredients offer real taste and can be declared as yeast extract or natural flavor. Also, they are free from allergens like soy or gluten, suitable for vegetarians, and conform to multiple religious certifications.
Short and simple labels

According to European Food Law process flavors, a maillard reaction between a protein source and reducing sugars is not considered natural. Which is why we developed the same functionality as process flavors with a simple declaration: Natural flavor or simply yeast extract. In other words, they are literally extracts from yeast – nothing more, nothing less. 

It’s increasingly important with markets like Japan prohibiting the use of L-cysteine while the EU (through EC No 1334/2008) has changed its classification of fermentative L-cysteine, ruling out a natural declaration.
