The yeast extracts have numerous applications in the food and beverage industry owing to its multifunctional property. Yeast extract is used as a natural flavor-enhancing ingredient in the food, beverages, and dietary supplement industry. Yeast extract significantly acts as a flavour enhancer and can partially replace the salt. The increasing use of yeast extract in a low-salt diet is expected to witness robust growth in the global specialty yeast market.

The increasing consumer demand for specialty yeast due to awareness about its nutritional benefits will increase the adoption of specialty yeast by bakery food manufacturers.

Specialty yeast will help to cut the excess salt and sugar present in food. Specialty yeast plays a crucial role in the production of fermented beverages such as beer, wine, and distilled spirit. The pharmaceutical segment is anticipated to witness sturdy growth in the global specialty yeast industry owing to the multiple uses of specialty yeast in production on biopharmaceuticals. Insulin, insulin analogs and human serum albumin are some of the leading biopharmaceuticals produced by yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae).
