Key Takeaways from the Nutritional Yeast Market Study

  • Governmental and para-governmental authorities in collaboration with prominent manufacturers in the nutritional yeast market are conducting extensive research and development activities to aid sustainable development. Global research and development spending has reached a record of US$ 1.7 trillion, out of which 80% is accounted by 10 countries. The United States, Germany, Canada, Japan, China, France, India, and the United Kingdom are some of the countries with high research and development spending. For instance, Lallemand research and development has launched an innovative strain of yeast YANG, derived from the association of two different strains of yeast, S. cerevisiae and C. jadinii, in specific fractions. This innovative strain is used as an animal feed ingredient to enhance immune response.
  • Inactive dried nutritional yeast can be used as an effective ingredient in animal feed to boost nutritional content. Ready availability of inactive dried nutritional yeast and the growing awareness regarding the benefits of inactive dried nutritional yeast as an animal feed ingredient support growth of the global nutritional yeast market.
  • Consumers perceive organic products as safer and healthier when compared to traditionally and conventionally manufactured products. This encourages manufacturers to expand their product portfolio to include certified organic offerings, which is anticipated to help them strengthen their market positions. Production of organic nutritional yeast requires use of organic molasses, organic grains, and plant-derived ingredients as a source of sugar, nitrogen, and other key ingredients. While organically produced nutritional yeast occupies a niche percentile in the current global market scenario, demand for these products is expected to grow, attributable to increasing market penetration in Europe and North America, where the organic trend is gaining significant momentum.
