Yeast extracts are the common name for yeast products made by extracting their cell contents (and removing the cell walls). they are used as food additives or flavorings, or as nutrients for bacterial culture media. They are often used to create savory flavors and umami taste sensations. and can be found in a large variety of packaged food. including frozen meals, crackers, snack foods, gravy, stock and more. They are rich in B vitamins (but not B12), and so are of particular importance to strict vegetarians and vegetarians. Yeast extracts and fermented foods contain glutamic acid (free glutamates), an amino acid which adds an umami flavor. Glutamic acid is found in meat, cheese, fungi, and vegetables—such as mushrooms, broccoli, and tomatoes.Yeast extracts in liquid form can be dried to a light paste or a dry powder (but this is not the same as nutritional yeast). Additionally, skincare companies like Orved, Kiehl's, REN, and SkinCeuticals use yeast extract in their products
