Yeasts have been part of the human diet since at least ancient Egypt when they were already used to leaven bread and ferment wine. Their exceptional fermentative and nutritional properties also make yeasts valuable nutrients for animals. Animals have been fed various yeast species and their derivatives for more than 100 years. ​

Yeasts can exert positive effects on animal health and well-being by stabilizing their intestinal flora and reinforcing immune modulation. Their use has recently been boosted by the growing demand for natural alternatives to treatments (e.g., antibiotics).​

Consequently, the use of yeasts as feed ingredients has largely increased in the last decades.​
