FAQ

eQ: What is brewers yeast?

A: Brewers yeast is a by-product of the beer brewing process. Brewers yeast is a single cell organism of the group Saccharomyces cerevisiae used by brewers to ferment raw beer and convert the carbohydrates to alcohol and carbon dioxide. During the fermentation process, the yeast absorbs many nutrients including several essential minerals. The yeast cell itself is a high-quality, single cell protein with an exceptional amino acid balance and contains an abundance of vitamins, especially B complex vitamins.


Q: Why is brewers yeast an important ingredient?

A: Brewers yeast improves feed efficiency while increasing fiber digestion, is highly palatable, supplies a variety of natural minerals, and is loaded with highly digestible protein and vitamins. Once in the digestive system, brewers yeast balances and feeds bacteria while helping to produce enzymes necessary for efficient digestion. The F.L. Emmert Company’s products are made with fresh brewers yeast dried by an exclusive process. This method of drying preserves nutrients and supplies yeast in a form that is highly available to the animal. Emmert products help the digestive system work at peak efficiency, allowing animals to get more nutrition not only from our products, but also from their daily feed.
