Extensive Definition

Torula (Latin name: Candida utilis; formerly Torulopsis utilis, Torula utilis) is a species of yeast.

Use

Torula, in its inactive form (usually labeled as torula yeast), is widely used as a flavouring in processed foods and pet foods. It is produced from wood sugars, as a by-product of paper production. It is pasteurized and spray-dried to produce a fine, light grayish-brown powder with a slightly yeasty odor and gentle, slightly meaty taste.
