Foods Alive Nutritional Yeast Non-Fortified Description
Most Nutritional Yeast products are fortified with synthetic B-vitamins, but not ours! Our all natural Nutritional Yeast provides the great cheesy flavor you're looking for without the use of synthetic additives.
Nutritional yeast is a source of dietary fiber, vitamins, minerals and it's a complete protein. With a nutty cheesy flavor, our nutritional yeast is a favorite amongst many vegans because of its unique flavor and similarity to cheese when added to foods.
Nutritional yeast is not brewer's yeast, baker's yeast or torula yeast. Since it doesn't come in contact with barley (like brewer's yeast), it is gluten-free and safe for people with celiac disease. It is not made from by-products of breweries, distilleries or paper mills. It is an inactive yeast and contains no added sugars or preservatives and is free of synthetic vitamins and minerals.
GMOs, gluten, MSG, dairy and animal ingredients.

Vegan Stuffed Shells
“Stuffed” pasta dishes typically call for ricotta cheese. For a dairy-free version, simply replace it with a simple mixture of crumbled tofu, flavorful spices and creamy-dreamy plant-based cheese. Most pastas are (surprisingly!) vegan, as are marinara or tomato sauces. This dish comes together easily for an authentic-tasting Italian dinner that vegans and non-vegans alike will love. Buon appetito!
