Nutritional yeast (not to be confused with baker’s yeast or brewer’s yeast) is a deactivated source of yeast grown on molasses. It has a subtle flavor that is typically used in recipes as a dairy-free cheesy flavor substitute.
Nutritional yeast is one of the best plant-based sources of Vitamin B12, crucial for proper brain functioning. It is also high in protein, accounting for half of its weight in grams. One tablespoon (8g) of nutritional yeast provides 4g of protein and will meet the recommended dosage for adults of Vitamin B12.
It is also a great source of dietary fiber, folic acid, and Vitamin B6, while being low in sodium, cholesterol-free, and saturated fat-free.
How to use:
Sprinkle on healthy dishes, soups, sauces or use as an ingredient to make dairy-free cheese alternatives.
