The distinctive flavor of nutritional yeast can be described as nutty, cheesy or savory. Add it your to salad dressings, dips and creamy nut-based sauces or sprinkle it over salads, cooked vegetable dishes, air-popped popcorn or kale chips.

Nutritional yeast is a microorganism known as Saccharomyces cerevisiae, which is grown using beet molasses, then deactivated with heat and dried into flakes. Although it is the same species, nutritional yeast is different from baking or brewer’s yeast. Nutritional yeast has been deactivated, which means that it cannot be used for leavening or fermentation purposes. Instead, the primary purpose of nutritional yeast is the delicious, savory flavor it lends to recipes.

The nutritional yeast at your local grocer or in the bulk bins at your favorite health food store is likely fortified with excessive amounts of several B vitamins, including synthetic folic acid. Since Dr. Fuhrman cautions against the dangers from supplemental folic acid, it was critical for us to offer a safer, unfortified nutritional yeast. Dr. Fuhrman’s Nutritional Yeast contains only naturally occurring vitamins and minerals.
