Product Description

RED STAR has been delivering consistent-quality yeast products for over 125 years. A favorite among consumers since its introduction in 1975, RED STAR Nutritional Yeast Vegetarian Support Formula™ is a delicious, allergen-free way to help meet your daily requirements for protein, fiber, and vitamins and minerals, and to improve your overall health.

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.

RED STAR Nutritional Yeast Vegetarian Support Formula™

Originally developed for vegetarians who are at risk of developing B vitamin deficiencies, RED STAR Nutritional Yeast Vegetarian Support Formula™ is an ideal food product for anyone wanting to increase their intake of key nutrients, while improving the taste of their food!

Made in the USA

RED STAR Nutritional Yeast is manufactured in a state-of-the-art, GMP-certified facility in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, where we control every aspect of the production process.

Benefits of RED STAR® Nutritional Yeast

  • Quality Digestible Protein, with No Cholesterol
    Protein is essential for the maintenance and growth of muscle. In addition to lending strength, muscle is also important for bone density and equilibrium.
  • B-complex Vitamins
    The B vitamins participate in energy production and support the health of the nervous system. They are depleted during times of stress.
  • Minerals
    Minerals facilitate chemical responses throughout the body. Nutritional yeast naturally contains macro-minerals, such as calcium, magnesium, potassium and phosphorous, as well as micro-minerals, such as zinc, copper, molybdenum, iron, selenium and manganese.
  • Dietary Fiber from Mannan, Beta-glucan and Trehalose
    Dietary fiber provides the needed bulk to move waste through the intestines. While the daily value for fiber is 25 grams, most Americans do not consume this amount through the diet.
  • Glutathione
    Glutathione is the body’s most important antioxidant. It is found within every cell, where it neutralizes free radicals, supports detoxification and strengthens immunity.
  • Lecithin
    Lecithin is a healthy fat that acts as a building block of cell membranes. It is an excellent source of choline and inositol, B vitamin-like compounds that are involved in the body’s transport of fats and that support nervous system function.
  • Flavorful and Versatile
    RED STAR Nutritional Yeast Vegetarian Support Formula™ has a rich, roasted nutty flavor that some people compare to parmesan cheese.

RED STAR Nutritional Yeast Vegetarian Support Formula™ has many uses:

  • Sprinkle on toast, steamed vegetables, popcorn or any of your favorite foods to enhance their flavor
  • Use as a base for dips and dressings
  • Make it the secret ingredient in your soups, sauces and baked foods
  • Toss a tablespoon or two into your morning smoothie for a nutritional boost

RED STAR Nutritional Yeast is as delicious as it is nutritious!

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.

  5. YUM!

  6. Fantastic energy supplement

    Posted by jenny on 15th Mar 2013

    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.
