The coproducts of yeast

« Once upon a time, some fine, carefully-tended beetroot were growing in the fields.

 

In the autumn, they were harvested and taken to the sugar-beet mill.

 

In order to produce sugar, the beetroot are carefully washed, grated and soaked in hot water to release the sugar. A juice is obtained, purified and concentrated into sugar syrup.

The process continues with the syrup being boiled 3 times in succession to obtain sugar crystals and sugar syrups.

 

The different syrups and molasses are carefully selected to produce a blend of substrates, a growing medium on which the yeast cells can multiply.

The yeast cells multiply and centrifugation is then used to separate the yeast cream from the growing medium.

The growing medium is concentrated in low-energy evaporator units to obtain by-products meeting very specific specifications

 

The by-products are intended for specific purposes such as Feed CMS to feed cows, Fertilizer CMS to fertilise fields or potash extracts to produce fertiliser.
