Yeast extracts consist of the cell contents of yeast without the cell walls they are used as food additives or flavourings, or as nutrients for bacterial culture media.

Used in Vegimite, marmite, ozimite etc often used to create savory flavours and umami taste sensations and can be found in a large variety of packaged food, including frozen meals, crackers, snack foods, gravy, stock and more. They are rich in B vitamins (but not B12), and so are of particular importance to vegans and vegetarians. Yeast extracts and fermented foods contain glutamic acid (free glutamates), an amino acid which adds an umami flavour. Glutamic acid is found in meat, cheese, fungi (mushrooms and yeast), and vegetables—such as broccoli, and tomatoes.
