Beef extract powder is used for the examination of bacteria in milk, water, and other substances, where homogenous composition of the medium is important. For example, beef extract finds use for biochemical studies, especially fermentation reactions, as it is unaffected by fermentable substances. For such use, beef extract powder is prepared and standardized concentrations are used in microbiological culture media. The key use of beef extract powder lies in replacing infusion meat for such medium.

Beef products find other uses too. Beef extract is used to gauge the parameters of endurance and fatigue in the sports nutrition space. A research carried out on mice in Taiwan validates the use of beef extract in place of commonly-used whey protein for such findings. Further, the amount of beef extract administered was found to be correlated with improvement, wherein, a higher dose resulted in better improvement of endurance. Longer duration of performance of mice that were administered with beef extract in a forced swimming test was an observation too. Besides this, beef extract serves to be a marker to gauge fatigue. Experiments on mice that were administered beef extract resulted in significant reduction in lactate and blood urea levels, the latter being indicators of fatigue.

Nonetheless, results obtained from experiments conducted on mice for the potential use of beef extract are not straightforward to be translated to humans. This requires further research before any sort of conclusions are made. Gauging imminent opportunities from expanded use beef extract, Transparency Market Research (TMR) released a market study publication on the beef extract market.
