Prof. Dr. Ursula Bordewick-Dell from the Department of Ecotrophology at Münster University of Applied Sciences answers our questions on the topic of “Proteins and Yeast Extract”.
Yeast extract consists of vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates, amino acids and proteins. Especially the last two components are characteristic for it, because they give yeast extract its savory “umami” taste.
Proteins are therefore an important component for yeast extract. And they are also important for our nutrition. In our new video, we ask Prof. Dr. Bordewick-Dell some questions on the topic of “Proteins and Yeast Extract”. Among other things, we want to know what properties proteins have and what role they play in yeast extract.
