Our yeast a source of vitamin D -Yeast reacts to light in a similar way as humans do and to help improve the “healthy appeal” of your food products, we have made our yeasts a natural source of vitamin D
Due to the growing concern about the sunlight as well as the limited consumption of vitamin D rich food sources, vitamin D deficiency has been increasing in countries around the world.
Helping to satisfy consumers’ quest for more natural and vitamin D rich ingredients, during the regular production process Lallemand’s yeast is exposed to a source of light that naturally transforms the sterols present in yeast into vitamin D.
In this way, Lallemand yeast products (Eagle Yeast®, American Yeast®, Instaferm®, Engevita®, Lalmin®) are natural and vegetarian sources of vitamin D that can enhance the vitamin D content of baked goods (of bread in particular), be incorporated into food products or used as a supplement.
