Nutritional Yeast is an inactive, primary grown yeast that is specially grown for its exceptional nutritional value. It is commonly known as nooch. To those who love everything nutritious, the unappetizing name does not detract from the fact that nutritional yeast is probably one of the most nutritious, versatile and tastiest vegan seasoning or condiment you can use daily in your kitchen, and in almost any recipe.
Nature's Superfoods Premium Nutritional Yeast Flakes is an excellent natural source of B vitamins (including B12, typically found in animal foods), zinc and dietary fibre. B vitamins are essential for many bodily functions, one of which is metabolism - helping the body to produce energy.
Nutritional yeast is also a source of high-quality, easy-to-digest complete protein (with all 9 essential amino acids that our bodies cannot produce on their own) and trace minerals.
Nature's Superfoods Nutritional Yeast Flakes are specially grown from primary yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) in vitamin B-enriched purified beet molasses (non-GMO), thus incorporating the vitamin into the living food. The yeast is later rendered inactive and dried into homogenous flakes. No artificial additives or preservatives are added.
Provides much-needed B vitamins (including the much-coveted Vitamin B12) and zinc. Per serving (10 g or 2 tablespoons), this Nutritional Yeast provides 5g of complete protein and more than 100% of the RDA (for adults) for Vitamin B12 and Zinc.
