Benefits of Nutritional Yeast

What’s yellow, flaky, cheese-y, vegan and flavorful? It’s nutritional yeast and it not only adds flavor but also provides an abundance of stress-reducing B vitamins.  It is a complete protein source containing 18 amino acids and free of dairy, wheat, gluten, soy, sugar and corn. Nutritional yeast will not exacerbate a Candida overgrowth as it is not the same as baking yeast, active dry yeast, compressed yeast or brewer’s yeast. Quality nutritional yeast is derived from a single-cell organism called Saccharomyces Cerevisiae.
