Optimal yeast nutrition requires that all macronutrients – carbon, nitrogen, and phosphorus sources – and micronutrients – vitamin, fatty acids, metal ions, etc. – be available in quantities allowing yeast growth and ethanol production.
As an example, in industrial fermentation processes, the nitrogen available in feedstock is very often limited compared to the need of the yeast.
Supplementation with ingredients containing nitrogen enhances the robustness of the ethanol production process.
At Leaf, we understand our partners’ goal is to maintain their profitability through secure fermentations and increases in yields. Like any industrial process, ethanol production comes with high costs, with feedstocks and energy generating major expenses. Thus, the optimization of every stage of your production is crucial to reduce feedstock waste and energy expenditure.
Considering these challenges, we support you in addressing nutrient deficiencies, to maintain stable and consistent operations. Our comprehensive range of complex yeast nutrients, coupled with our expertise in fermentation is developed to support you in mitigating yeast stress, low yeast growth rates and incomplete fermentations by ensuring the bioavailability of nutritional ingredients for ethanol production.
