So, what is torula yeast?

Torula yeast is a type of yeast that is commonly used as a flavor enhancer in food production. It is a single-celled fungus that is grown on molasses or other nutrient-rich substrates. Torula yeast has a savory, umami flavor that is often described as meaty or nutty, and is used to add depth and complexity to savory dishes such as soups, sauces, and marinades. Due to its natural glutamic acid content, torula yeast is a popular ingredient in vegan and vegetarian products that aim to mimic the flavor of meat. Additionally, torula yeast is a good source of protein, B vitamins, and minerals, making it a nutritious ingredient in a variety of foods.
