Sure, but what is Nutritional Yeast?
It is a deactivated yeast product which is NOT brewers yeast. After being cultured, the yeast is deactivated under high heat, which make it particularly healthy and safe, free from candida albicans, putting away the risk of contracting a yeast infection. It comes in the form of yellow flakes or powder and has a nutty and cheesy flavor similar to parmesan, explaining why it is often used as a cheese substitutes. But most importantly, it has many health benefits including its high content of B-complex vitamins, high in magnesium, niacin, phosphorus, riboflavin and thiamin, naturally lactose-free, low in sodium, low in fats and normally gluten-free.
