AJIREX™NH is a unique yeast extract that contains a combination of peptides and dietary fibres to enhance creaminess, fattiness, mouthfeel and body. AJIREX™NH is also excellent at bitterness and other off-flavours. What makes this yeast extract unique is that it has very low levels of free amino acids and nucleotides, offering no umami and no yeasty or bouillon taste. In other words, AJIREX™NH is very neutral in taste. Due to its unique properties AJIREX™NH is suitable for beverages, dairy, plant-based drinks and cheese, as well as savoury applications where mouthfeel is important such as snack seasoning. AJIREX™NH also stabilises anthocyanin colour in beverages and other applications.
