Yeasts aren't easy to eliminate from many products because they grow over a
wide range of pH, don't require many nutrients and tend to dominate many
microbial populations. But sometimes there ARE answers!

There are some preservatives- and some MIGHT be considered natural- organic
acids etc. but they obviously aren't appropriate for all foods.

What kind of product?
What kind of yeast?
