Superfood® provides the nutritious supplements yeasts need for growth and survival during the anaerobic stress of fermentation, in doses that are most advantageous.
Superfood, containing a variety of nitrogen sources, is MUCH better for yeasts than just DAP and better than other blends. Superfood includes 32.5% DAP, but most nutrient blends have much more DAP (45% up to almost 100%). Why is there such a difference?
When Lisa Van de Water formulated Superfood in 1986, her philosophy was to provide more of the complex ingredients yeasts need to balance inorganic nitrogen additions, and less DAP. She decided that it was much more important to emphasize highly effective doses of complex ingredients, because extra DAP can be added as needed.
