A Broad Look At Brewer’s Yeast

angela_bio_picBy Dr. Angela Mays, PhD

At Emmert, brewer’s yeast is the foundation of who we are and what we do. Our company has been involved in the manufacturing and further processing of co-products from the beer industry for more than a century.

Saccharomyces cerevisiae is a single cell organism used in the fermentation process of brewing beer. Our source of brewer’s yeast has undergone a food-grade fermentation process before delivery by the brewery. The final product arrives at our facility as a combination of live liquid yeast and fermentation solubles.

During the fermentation process, brewer’s yeast absorbs nutrients and minerals, adding to its value as an animal feed supplement. The yeast becomes a source of naturally occurring, high-quality protein, vitamins, minerals, nutrients, and amino acids in the animals’ diet.

A more in-depth look at the various components of brewer’s yeast and Sacchromyces cerevisiae will be discussed in future posts.
