NutraIngredients-Asia ​spoke to Zhang Hai Bo, chief executive of Angel Yeast Human nutrition R&D centre, to find out more about the novel uses of yeast in improving human health.

Yeast beta glucan, extracted from cell wall of yeast, was commonly used for enhancing immune system, Zhang said.

Moving forward, the firm is exploring its effects in alleviating upper respiratory tract infections and allergic reactions in infants.
