Nutritional Yeast Powder
Other Names - Nooch, Savoury Yeast Flakes, Brufax
Flavor Profile - Mild, with a nutty, cheesy flavor
Culinary Usages - Taken as a supplement in pills, flakes and powders are the most popular forms, adding a nutritional boost when mixed in juices, smoothies, dressings, sauces, or soups, or sprinkled on salads, cooked vegetables, popcorn-or just about any other food. Nutritional yeast is especially popular as a vegan substitute for grated cheese, such as Parmesan.
Nutritional yeast is produced from a single-celled organism, Saccharomyces Cerevisiae, which is grown, harvested, washed, and dried with heat to deactivate it. Nutritional yeast is an excellent source of protein and vitamins, especially B-complex vitamins, and it is a complete protein. It is also free of sugar, dairy, and gluten. It is actually a fungus, like mushrooms, and not an animal product so it is completely vegan. Some people call it “nooch”. In Australia it is sometimes called “savoury yeast flakes.” In New Zealand, it is known as “Brufax”. Nutritional yeast is not alive and does not have anything to do with brewer’s yeast, torula yeast, bakers’ yeast, or candida.
Nutritional yeast is inert, candida-safe, and free of processed free glutamic acid.
