Nutritional Yeast, also known as savory yeast or nooch, is made from a single-celled sugar-eating organism grown on cane and beet molasses. The yellow colored yeast is harvested, washed, pasteurized and dried with heat to “deactivate” it. Because it’s inactive, it has no ability to leaven like baking yeast but works great as a seasoning and non-dairy cheese substitute. This non-irradiated nutritional yeast adds nutty, umami and slightly cheesy flavor to many dishes, including soups, gravies, sauces, popcorn, snack mixes, and eggless scrambles. Nutritional yeast is gluten-free, a complete protein, filled with B vitamins and contains trace minerals making it a perfect addition to any meal.
