Located in Paris, France, Biospringer is one of the oldest producers of natural yeast ingredients. Present in France, China, Brazil and the US, it offers organic and natural yeast products for taste construction in processed foods such as dried autolysed yeasts, dried food yeasts, flavours and yeast extracts.
Yeast extracts are natural ingredients made from yeasts. They are natural flavour building blocks since they have a variety of flavours, from base notes including vegetable or meaty notes (red or white meat, poultry) to umami and kokumi flavours and sensations.
Umami can be described as deliciousness sensation coupled with a lingering taste, whereas Kokumi brings a fuller sensation and richness. Biospringer's Springer 2000 yeast extracts are rich in naturally occurring nucleotides and therefore have a umami taste and mouthfeel; they can improve the overall taste of a formulated product and, as such, are a key tool for salt reduction.
Kokumi taste and sensations are present in Springer 4000 yeast extracts, thanks to their naturally occurring sulphur amino-acids and peptide content. They bring richness and fullness to recipes, and can be used for fat reduction. The Biospringer Culinary Centers help formulate all its yeast products thanks to their expertise in:
Yeast extracts are suitable for multiple sweet and savoury applications including soups and sauces; convenience foods, meat and fish, vegan products; biscuits, cakes, baked goods, savoury snacks; and seasonings, flavouring blends and formulations; plus many more applications.
