Yeast extract, an essential component of biofertilizers, is a key player in the sustainable agriculture landscape. This extract is derived from fresh yeast, a microorganism widely known for its role in the production of foods such as bread, wine and beer.

Its applications cover various sectors, such as:

  • Culture media and microbiology tests: In the laboratory environment, yeast extract is crucial for culture media and microbiological testing.
  • Nutrients for biofertilizers: It stands out as a high-demand source of nitrogen in culture media for the production of biofertilizers.
  • Fermentation Industry: Large-scale fermentation in industry takes advantage of yeast extract in the synthesis of amino acids, organic acids, antibiotics, enzymes, vitamins and other bio-based products
  • Food and beverage formulation: It also plays a significant role in the formulation of foods and beverages, contributing to their balanced composition.

Biofertilizers, as well as bioinputs in general, have stood out as ecologically correct alternatives, since, in addition, they can be composed of bacteria, fungi and other sources, they emerge as ecologically correct alternatives, in small to large-scale agriculture, and replacement of traditional chemical fertilizers that harm the soil and the entire ecosystem. The strains, however, initial colonies or isolates of these microorganisms are readily available at Embrapa and the Instituto Biológico.

Compared to chemical fertilizers, biofertilizers not only reduce the environmental impact on groundwater, but also offer financial advantages, with more affordable costs.

Promising trends in the biofertilizer market in Brazil – more about yeast extract

According to a publication in 'ohoje.com', the Brazilian biofertilizers market demonstrated annual growth of around 20%. Forecasts suggest that this growth is expected to continue at a steady pace of approximately 10% per year, with the possibility of maintaining growth rates of 20%, depending on conditions in the agribusiness sector. McKinsey & Company conducted the 2022 edition of Global Farmer Insights globally and validated these positive outlooks.

As far as the extract is concerned, its fundamental characteristics include a balanced composition, presenting itself as a water-soluble powder, with a shade that varies from light beige to yellow. This balanced formulation includes free amino acids, peptides, vitamins, nucleotides and trace elements, making it versatile and suitable for diverse applications.

We currently import the yeast extract from our portfolio from China. The nationalized product is available on the local market with an average price of R$ 60.00/kg – FOB São Paulo.
