Yeast Metabolites

Do you know 5 facts about Yeast Metabolites?

Management: Cow

Nutrition:    Concentrate Feeds

Nutrition: Yeast metabolites


  • Yeast Metabolites are derived from the fermentation process and provide valuable compounds such as organic acids and metabolites. These support microbial growth in the rumen, indirectly contributing to improved digestion and nutrient utilization.
  • Unlike live yeast, yeast metabolites are more stable and have an extended shelf life. This makes them easier to handle and store, ensuring consistent quality over time.
  • Yeast metabolites are user-friendly and easy to handle, making them a convenient choice for incorporation into feed formulations without the challenges associated with live microorganisms.
  • With standardized compositions, yeast metabolites offer consistent performance. This predictability ensures reliable outcomes in terms of supporting dairy cow health and nutrition.
  • By providing substrates for microbial growth, yeast metabolites exert an indirect positive influence on rumen fermentation. This leads to enhanced digestion, nutrient absorption, and overall performance in dairy cows.
  •  Health Benefits: Yeast metabolites possess bioactive properties that aid in improving the immune response of animals. These compounds have been shown to positively impact gut health by modulating the microbial population in the digestive tract, potentially reducing the incidence of certain gastrointestinal disorders in livestock.

  •  Reduced Environmental Impact: Incorporating yeast metabolites in animal feed has shown promise in reducing methane emissions from ruminants. This helps mitigate the environmental footprint of livestock farming by minimizing greenhouse gas production while enhancing feed efficiency.

  •  Enhanced Reproductive Performance: Studies suggest that yeast metabolites may play a role in improving reproductive outcomes in animals. By supporting a balanced gut microbiota and nutrient absorption, these metabolites contribute to better overall health, potentially leading to improved fertility rates and reproductive success.
