Chinese yeast company Angel Yeast Co has launched AngeoPro F80, a vegan-friendly, natural-origin yeast protein.
The allergen-free ingredient has a high protein content and can be used in a wide range of plant-based foods, including vegan fish, meat and cheese alternatives.
Angel Yeast says that yeast protein – derived from Saccharomyces cerevisiae – offers a balanced amino acid composition and high digestibility.
Yeast protein is made using an eco-friendly fermentation process that requires limited land use. According to Angel Yeast, research shows that the carbon emissions generated during the production process are 20 times less than those of beef.
“As a unique microbial protein, yeast protein can not only provide similar nutritional value to animal protein, but also address the concerns involving plant-based protein such as genetic modification and shortage of land resources,” said Eric Ao, general manager of Angel Yeast’s Europe division.
“We believe yeast protein is one of the best alternative protein sources in the market now.”
