Nutritional Yeast Wonder

by Janna Chin

Nutritional Yeast is grown on mineral enriched cane and beet molasses and is used as a food supplement in the form of powders or yellow flakes. Nutritional yeast is rich in:
• protein
• natural B-vitamins
• dietary fiber
• 15 minerals
• 18 amino acids

Favored by vegetarians and the health conscious, nutritional yeast provides as much protein as meat and is a good source of vitamin B-12. Nutritional yeast is a non-genetically modified (non-GMO), gluten-free, low in fat, low sodium, kosher, no added sugars, preservatives or added flavors food supplement. Nutritional yeast is an inactive yeast, different than brewers yeast, which is a byproduct of breweries and distilleries and bread-making yeast and which is kept active and similar in appearance to nutritional yeast. Nutritional yeast has a delicious nutty, cheesy, creamy flavor and can be added to your favorite meals to enhance flavor and nutrition.
