Biotechnology company Arbiom has unveiled a new yeast protein ingredient brand, Yusto, designed for use in a range of food products.
Created through fermentation, the new yeast ingredient is globally approved for use in all types of food products, including animal-free meat and dairy products, snacks, sauces and specialised nutrition.
Yusto is rich in protein, containing all essential amino acids, as well as B vitamins and functional fibres.
Arbiom describes the ingredient as having an intense umami flavour, able to perfectly enhance flavours and mask imperfections such as bitterness and vegetal flaws during plant-based food development.
According to the company, the inclusion of Yusto can also allow for a 50% reduction in salt.
