Nutritional yeast is one of those things you may have seen at health food stores .. and been like no . yeast grows bread .. and the word ‘yeast’ evokes a bit of a nose twitch .. but nutritional yeast is a whole different beast .
its utilised by vegans and vegetarians for its HIGH B12 vitamin content (which is a vitamin necessity) .. but mainly because it tastes of nutty cheese .. therefore is delicious . it comes in a flake like powder form and i use it in salad dressings or basically sprinkled on anything and everything .
-high in protein
-yes its gluten free
-high in fiber
– low cal
-nucleotides – anti ageing
– did i mention it tastes like cheese ?
just to clear up your sicky faces .. it isnt active yeast .. so it assimilates in the body easily aids digestion and perks up many a dish , also it is candida friendly so don’t worry your pretty little head
if you’re still unsure here is some yeasty reading
