Nutritional yeast is a source of fiber, minerals, vitamins (especially the B-complex vitamins, including B12), and is a complete protein.
Nutritional yeast is produced by culturing the yeast with a mixture of sugarcane and beet molasses, then harvesting, washing, drying and packaging the yeast.
Yellow in color and with a nutty cheesy flavor, nutritional yeast is an inactive yeast that is a favorite amongst many vegans because of its unique flavor and similarity to cheese when added to foods.
Sprinkle some on hot popcorn, garlic bread, add a spoonful to cereals, juices, smoothies or use as a seasoning for salad, soup, gravy, casseroles and so much more!
Nutritional yeast is NOT brewer's yeast, bakers yeast or Torula yeast... and because nutritional yeast does not come in contact with barley (like brewer's yeast), it is gluten free and safe for people with Celiac disease.
