The product is the cell wall fraction gained from pure culture yeast of the species S. cerevisiae. The soluble parts of the yeast cells are removed by a gentle digestion, the remaining cell wall fraction is then purified and finally dried. It stands out for its content of high molecular polysaccharides like glucans and mannans. The yellowish to brownish coloured powder with its typical yeast flavour has a high water binding and emulsifying capacity in different food systems.
