Aventine Yeast ™

Aventine Yeast™ has been a leader in inactive yeast products for over 20 years. Our mission is to provide our customers a consistent, quality product at a competitive cost. The company operates its Pekin, IL facility 365 days a year to extract value-added products from Pacific Ethanol’s corn wet milling and fermentation process. Our yeasts are Kosher and Chametz-free certified, and are always reliable in quality and delivery. 

Aventine Yeast™ is produced from a continuous fermentation process, producing more than two million gallons of beer per day. This process uses a corn starch media and yeast of the Saccharomyces cerviseae classification. Our plant’s Quality Assurance department closely monitors the fermentation process to ensure clean, healthy fermentation without the use of antibiotics. The fermentation stream is transported via pipeline directly to our facility, where the yeast is removed from stream and immediately processed into a growing variety of products for use in animal, pet and human food, and fermentation applications.
