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.


My regimen:

Eat regularly: a wide variety of vegetables, eggs, meat/fish, cheese, yogurt, butter, fruit, nuts/seeds.

Occasionally eat: beans, squash, potatoes.

Don't eat: sugar, grains, most processed food.

These are not steps, but stages some people progress through when going from conventional to holistic medicine. Stage 2 is how I became 99%+ Clear, eliminated my dysmennorhea, significantly reduced my sebum & pore size, etc & is my predominant method.

Stage 1 (Treatment):

* (Daily) Isocare Skin Control Cleanser, Dream Products Customized Natural Face Lotion & Coppertone Sport Spray Sunscreen (mixed)

* (Sporadically) spot treat w/ anti-inflammatory (neosporin, hydrocortisone, salicylic acid) or a skin lightener (post-inflammatory pigmentation) to treat stubborn cystic/nodular acne that appears due to unknowingly or knowingly ingesting a food/ingredient that breaks me out (I do my best to avoid these foods). If you cover treated area w/ a bandaid, it makes product more effective.

Stage 2 (Prevention): "cheapest" method ~ Since Aug. 2002

* Follow a Gluten-Free, Trans-Fat Free, Dairy-Free and No Added Sugar diet for my Insulin Resistance/Hyperandrogenism (Silent Chronic Inflammatory Syndrome)

* Avoid ALL types of nuts and the Genus Prunus (almonds, plums, peaches, nectarines, apricots, cherries), Bananas, Pineapples, Cottonseed oil, Artificial Sweetners.

Stage 3 (Correction):

* Strengthen/Repair GI - Immune health

Research:

* Developing functional foods for those with acne & other special needs (assuming there's a defficiency).

* Developing good & "safe" formulas for various hormonal issues for women. Correction stage may resolve this for some.

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.
