December 2011: Yeast extract producers defend ingredient against German backlash

European producers of speciality yeast products are defending the use of yeast extracts in food following claims from consumer advocates such as FoodWatch in Germany that the food industry's use of such ingredients and labelling around them is deceptive because they are actually largely MSG (monosodium glutamate, 621) but not labelled as such.

We agree with FoodWatch.
