Nutritional Yeast

10 posts in this topic

Anyone use this? I'm thinking of slowly adding it to my diet, maybe by mixing a spoon with juice because it's such a good source of B-vitamins and other nutrients as well. I'm looking at Kal Nutritional Flakes, anyone use this brand? What's the taste like and how about it affecting your acne?

I love nutritional yeast, if for nothing else than the taste. I have no idea what brand I get because I buy it in bulk. It's delicious sprinkled on steamed veggies with a little tamari. I put it on salad sometimes. It's great on popcorn, pasta (kind of like a parmesan sub), soup. I could put it on just about every entree I eat, but I usually limit it to one meal a day.

Some people have problems with yeasts, and I guess one should avoid it if they have candida, but other than that, it is a good source of b vitamins, esp. for vegans.

Wow, maybe I need to check what brand is in the bulk bin at my healthfood store; make sure it has B12.

I don't take a multi vitamin, but do take a b-complex, though not religiously.

The yeast is really good on popcorn, and you're right, it is kind of a cheesy, buttery flavor; a good parmesan substitute.

Well, I picked up some nut. yeast at the store today. I got a whole 32 cents worth just to try it out and it tastes pretty good along with having a really nice aroma. It's sort of a melange of butter and cheese flavors.
