Nutritional yeast -- yummy!

Recommended Posts

I'm always trying to find ways to flavor my food to make it interesting and especially more healthy. I read somewhere that vegetarians use nutritional yeast to add flavor to popcorn and other foods because it has a definite cheesy taste. I tried it and oh boy! I love it on eggs, vegetables, pasta -- anywhere you want to add a cheese flavor with very little calories. It also has a salty taste which I love because I don't like to use salt. A little goes a long way on your food too (I never use anywhere near a TBS). Here is what I bought, and you may want to try it too (I don't mean to sound like a commercial but I'm sold on it!):

Carol, yes it really does taste like cheese -- kinda like cheddar. And I love that it is also tastes salty. Cool, huh? I don't know if it's core or not, though. I would think so because you need so little to achieve your desired result, and you just sprinkle it on. It's a lot like a spice I suppose.

 

If you try it, I hope you like it as much as I do!

Tinka, no, it's a different product.

 

"Brewer's yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) is an inactive yeast, meaning the yeasts have been killed and have no leavening power. It is the yeast remaining after beer making. It is used as a nutrient supplement to increase the intake of B vitamins. Brewer's yeast comes powdered (the most potent form), in flakes (best for health shakes), and in tablets.

Brewer's yeast and torula yeast are frequently confused with nutritional yeast. Nutritional yeast is a primary grown food crop, which means it is cultivated specifically for use as a nutritional supplement. This yeast is dried at higher temperatures than baking yeast, rendering it inactive. Unlike the live yeasts used in breadmaking and brewing, nutritional yeast has no fermenting or leavening power." (from diet-and-health.net)
