Pak Group recently unveiled its new, clean label, and non-GMO Bellarise Deactivated Yeast. The latest addition to the Pasadena-based company’s new and expanding range of clean label and non-GMO products, Bellarise Deactivated Yeast gives industrial and commercial bakeries a yeast that solves numerous challenges in the kitchen and at point-of-sale.


According to Alex Peña, Director of Product Development at Pak Group, Bellarise Deactivated Yeast “is our newest yeast solution that helps bakers produce goods free from L-Cysteine, and adds one more essential non-GMO ingredient to their labels. Consumers are increasingly choosing healthier breads, and we need to help bakers meet that demand. With Bellarise Deactivated Yeast we are doing exactly that. Factor in that our deactivated yeast also has a 33% longer shelf life than other leading brands; it can easily replace L-Cysteine; yields better proof times; provides strong reducing power and more concentrated glutathione for enhanced extensibility; and adds subtle notes of yeast flavor when used in modified amounts, and bakers have an incredibly versatile, reliable, and valuable tool in their arsenal.”


In addition to being non-GMO, Bellarise Deactivated Yeast has also earned kosher status through Orthodox Union, Global Food Safety Initiative certification from the British Retail Consortium, and is Halal-certified through GIMDES.
