Torula Yeast Market Overview
Yeasts are single-cell organisms specifically used in the baking and brewing industry to break down sugar and starch into carbon dioxide and alcohol through the process of fermentation. Yeasts come in different types of types and forms, one of them is the torula yeast. The torula yeast is also known as candida utilis and is one of the popular commercial food additives.
This yeast is derived from wood alcohol, i.e., a by-product of the paper industry. The yeast is dried into a powdered form of pale brown colour. Torula yeast is known for its rich meaty and savoury flavours and a suitable alternative for monosodium glutamate (MSG), a chemical additive used as a flavour enhancer.
Apart from its industrial usages, the yeast is gaining popularity in the vegan and pharmaceutical industry owing to its naturalness and high nutrient availability.
Wide Range of Applications and Rising Popularity of Veganism to Anticipate the Growth of Torula Yeast Market
The torula yeast is used in various processed foods such as processed meats, sauces, salad dressings, soups, pasta, and other processed food items. Owing to the rapid boom of veganism in the developed nations, the first world vegan consumers get to relish on plant-based meat burgers that possess the same taste and essence of a regular meat burger.
This is because the torula yeast is rich in glutamic acid that gives smoky and savoury meat like flavour to vegan food items. The yeast is used for thickening of protein shakes and dips and is a popular additive in pet foods owing to its meat-like flavour. Lastly, it is widely used across the paper, energy, and pharmaceutical industry as well.
Nutritional Characteristic of Torula Yeast to be the Differentiating Factor
Torula yeast is a significant source of nutrition. It contains high percentages of zinc, amino acids, vitamin B, and is low in salt. The torula yeast is rich in proteins and accounts for about 60% of protein content. Due to its nutritional benefits, the torula yeast comes under the food-grade product category and is therefore considered safe for human consumption.
The yeast has a long-lasting storability of about two years. Apart from the flavour and texture enhancement of processed foods, the torula yeast also ensures minimal loss of flavour and fragrance during the cooking process.
