What is nutritional yeast?
Yeasts are single-celled fungi. Edible yeasts include baker’s yeast, brewer’s yeast and nutritional yeast. While all three are variants of the same species, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, each has a different use. Baker’s yeast is a live active yeast that is used for helping baked goods rise. Brewer’s yeast is a live active yeast that is used for brewing beer. Nutritional yeast is an inactive yeast that is consumed for its nutritional content.
RED STAR Nutritional Yeast is a primary grown pure culture strain of Saccharomyces cerevisiae. It is a powdered yeast without leavening power, marketed for its protein and vitamin content. This type of yeast is available in both powder and pill form.
Nutritional Yeast is an excellent source of protein, rich in many of the essential amino acids that complement proteins available from other sources such as corn, wheat, and soy. RED STAR Nutritional Yeast contains an average of 50% protein by weight.
RED STAR Nutritional Yeast is also a rich source of B-complex vitamins that are important for normal and healthy body functions.
RED STAR Nutritional Yeast is a primary-grown nutritional yeast, meaning it is cultivated expressly for its nutritional components.

Use this on Popcorn!
We use flax oil (instead of butter), yeast flakes, and a touch of lemon pepper. It is the BEST. Try it and love it...

This nutritional yeast is awesome. We had read somewhere to try it on popcorn, so we finally did. Boy were we surprised. It was even better than parmesan cheese and so much healthier. My husband is sold on it now and our 3 yr. old is crazy about it too.

We love the nutritional yeast. I use it as a energy supplement since its so high in protein and b vitamins. It has really helped to improve my health. We have tried other nutritional yeast & brewer yeast products and they tasted so bad we couldn't stand to use them. This has a good taste. Very pleased with it.
