Lallemand adds Vitamin D enriched yeast to its product line
By Bakers Journal
Lallemand is expanding its range of Instaferm® VitaD® yeast products, with the introduction of Instaferm® Inactive VitaD® Plus Concentrate.
This 100 per cent natural yeast product contains a highly concentrated amount of Vitamin D, indicating a good possible use for Vitamin D-enriched bread products.
According to the recent International Food Information Council online survey held this year between the 12th of March 26th , more than 80 per cent of Americans aged between 18 – 80 identify food containing vitamin D as healthy.
Vitamin D is now considered a nutrient of health concern by many health agencies. Although the Recommended Daily Value for vitamin D is 800 IU, many have an inadequate daily intake, averaging 150 IU per day.
Bread and yeast-leavened bakery products can be excellent vehicles for vitamin D to help prevent vitamin D insufficiency and deficiency.
