Yeast extract is obtained from fresh yeast but without the surrounding cell wall of yeast culture. It is made up of proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals.
Check the “best before” date on the package. Prefer yeast extract in liquid form. Avoid yeast extracts in powder form as it attracts moisture too easily.
Yeast extract is high in sodium. It must be avoided by those having high blood pressure or those who want to limit sodium intake.(2)
