Powdered Fortified Yeast Remains Highly Preferred

Demand for powdered form of fortified yeast is on a significant rise, due to its relatively high stability, longer shelf-life, consistent texture, ability to blend with other components, and its ease of use in myriad of recipes. Accounting for 44% of the total sales, manufacturers have specifically focused on this category.

Fortified yeast flakes are also growing in popularity, especially as healthier, lower in calorie, and cheaper alternative to cheese. Furthermore, these flakes are becoming a must-have ingredient in plant-based and vegan cuisines. In view of growing awareness among consumers about health benefits of fortified yeast, manufacturers are also capitalizing on tablet and capsule forms that offer usage convenience.
