Minerals and Trace Elements in Yeast
- Oct 09, 2018 -

(1) Yeast is rich in many minerals and trace elements, such as calcium, iron, zinc, magnesium, selenium, chromium, manganese and so on.Selenium is one of the essential trace elements in human body.Anti-aging, anti-tumor, prevention of arteriosclerosis, prevention of keshan disease, kashin-beck disease, detoxification and improvement of skin immunity are the only known trace elements related to antiviral mutation.Chromium is also one of the essential trace elements in human body. Lack of chromium can lead to weight loss, peripheral neuritis, impaired clearance of glucose in plasma, etc.In addition, yeast can enrich trace elements in yeast cells through biochemical reaction through the salt in the culture medium, so that trace elements can transform from inorganic state to organic state and improve bioavailability.Generally up to 37%, reduce toxicity and improve safety.Therefore, the targeted production is rich in calcium, iron, zinc, magnesium, iodine, selenium, chromium, manganese and other trace elements of yeast powder, through the appropriate formula made into granules, it agent and other as health products.


(2) yeast can be further processed as functional yeast for nutritional and health food by using modern biotechnology.With the appearance of high-quality selenium, chromium, magnesium, zinc and germanium-rich yeast, the application value of yeast in nutrition and health food is being gradually explored and fully utilized.Because of its mineral and microelement content and higher biological utilization, natural safety is regarded as a valuable nutrition and health food.However, due to the high production technology and cost, the consumers mainly focus on the high-income.
