Revyve Develops Egg White Replacer Made From Spent Brewer’s Yeast

Dutch company Revyve has created a plant-based egg white replacer made from upcycled spent brewer’s yeast. The product is made by processing the yeast — which is a renewable byproduct of beer production — into proteins and fibers. The process takes place at low temperatures and does not require enzymes or harsh chemicals. With four million barrels of beer produced per year, Revyve has a virtually endless supply of yeast and does not need to grow any biomass. The company’s clean-label egg replacer is said to be ideal for use as a binder in plant-based meats, and also adds an umami flavor. Additionally, Revyve offers two more product solutions made from upcycled yeast. One is a protein-fiber blend designed for use in extruded meat alternatives, …
