So, what is yeast extract powder?

Yeast extract powder is a highly concentrated flavor enhancer made from autolyzed yeast cells. This fine, tan powder is rich in glutamic acid, a naturally occurring amino acid that gives foods a savory, umami flavor. Yeast extract powder is a popular ingredient in soups, sauces, snacks, and seasoning blends. It provides a savory, meaty flavor without the need for actual meat, making it a popular choice for vegan and vegetarian dishes. Additionally, yeast extract powder is a good source of B vitamins, including thiamin, riboflavin, and niacin.
