Bio-Ingredients

Lallemand offers a complete range of natural yeast-based health ingredients that vary in micronutrients and bioactive compounds. Our Lalmin®, Engevita®, and Yesto-Seal® (100% whole-cell Saccharomyces cerevisiae) yeast products complement one another to help you create the nutritional profile you require for your dietary supplements.

Our nutritional yeasts are produced by converting and/or enhancing the yeasts’ natural endogenous micronutrients to attain measurable levels of vitamins and/or minerals. These ensure the yeasts’ dosage of essential micronutrients, so Lallemand’s nutritional yeasts can contribute significant amounts of bioavailable micronutrients essential for optimal nutrition.

Lalmin® – Mineral and vitamins enriched yeast

Lalmin® mineral and vitamin yeasts are inactivated whole cell yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) product containing elevated levels of specific minerals and/or vitamins. Lalmin® is produced either by enhancing and converting the natural endogenous vitamin of the yeast, or by supplementing the natural yeast fermentation with measured levels of minerals and/or vitamins. The yeast cream is then pasteurized and dried. This process allows selected micronutrients to interact with the yeast cell components. The gentle processing conditions allow preservation of essential nutrients from yeast.

Yesto-Seal® – Mineral and vitamins tableting yeast

Yesto-Seal® are brewer’s yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) products that are specifically designed for tableting. Brewer’s yeast is a natural ingredient which is traditionally produced by washing, recovering and drying the yeast propagated during the production of beer. The yeast is dried at a controlled temperature which stops biological activity whilst maintaining its unique nutritional properties. Brewer’s yeast contains a natural mixture of high-grade protein, vitamins and minerals and provides an excellent cost effective source of ingredients to enhance the nutritional value of foodstuffs. Some products in the Yesto-Seal® range are Kosher and Halal certified, non-GMO, and clean label.

The Yesto-Seal® range also includes a SO2 free version as well as version free from major allergens.
