So, what is extrait de levures?

Extrait de levures, also known as yeast extract, is a highly concentrated paste made from autolyzed yeast cells. This ingredient is commonly used as a flavor enhancer in various food products due to its rich umami taste. Extracted from natural yeast, it contains glutamic acid, which stimulates the taste receptors on the tongue, creating a savory and meaty flavor. Besides being a flavor enhancer, it also contains essential vitamins and minerals such as B-complex vitamins and potassium. Due to its versatility and nutritional value, yeast extract is a popular ingredient in many savory dishes including soups, stews, sauces, and gravies.
