Nutritional Yeast Flakes Red Star Vegetarian - 10 oz.
  • Super Food
  • Vegetarian Product

NOW pleasant tasting Nutritional Yeast Flakes are produced from a specially selected strain of Saccharomyces cerevisiae. This yeast is grown on enriched purified cane and beet molasses under carefully controlled conditions.  This is a primary grown yeast and is therefore NOT a brewery by-product as is brewer's yeast.  This ensures freedom from Candida albicans yeast. It is is easy to incorporate into a healthy diet every day. 

Because of its delicious flavor it is easy to add to a variety of foods.  For a great-tasting nutritious snack, sprinkle it liberally over hot popcorn.   Use it as a seasoning for salads, vegetables, potatoes, rice, sauces, gravies, soups, casseroles, sandwiches, and spreads.  Sprinkle it over spaghetti and other pasta, pizza, or other dishes as a healthful replacement for grated cheese.  Consumers who like to get the added B-Vitamins and other nutrients in their diet often add one or two teaspoons to their juice or in smoothies for an added nutritional boost.

  • Nutritious – Rich in B-Complex Vitamins
  • Great Taste
  • Vegan/Vegetarian
  • Naturally Low in Fat and Sodium
  • Sugar Free
  • Dairy Free
  • Gluten Free

Nutritional yeast is jam-packed with essential vitamins and minerals. In fact, it’s one of the best non-animal sources of folic acid and vitamin B-12.  The yellow color of the flakes is a result of their large amount of vitamin B – ½ tbsp. fulfills your entire daily vitamin B needs. In addition to B-12, nutritional yeast is high in 15 different minerals and 18 amino acids. The yeast itself is grown on beets and dehydrated, so don’t let the word “yeast” scare you away. Since it is plant derived and dried out, it’s free of the harmful candida that can wreck havoc on your digestive system.
Packaged in a one pound clear plastic bag.   Purchased in bulk from Red Star.
