EURASYP launches information initiative on yeast extract

01 October 2011
The European Association for Specialty Yeast Products (EURASYP) launches an information initiative about yeast extract for the food industry and retailer. “Yeast extract is often mistakenly equated with additives and flavour enhancers. But yeast extract is a 100% natural ingredient based on yeast”, says Gerard Hardeman, spokesperson of EURASYP. “With this joint initiative, EURASYP intends to counteract misinterpretations and to support the retail in taking up the consumers request for more transparency and factual information.”
