Nutritional Yeast

Nutritional yeast is a form of inactive yeast, usually made of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, used extensively in vegetarian and vegan cuisine. Known for its savoury flavor profile reminiscent of strong cheese or marmite, it makes a healthy and tasty substitute for cheese in dairy-free recipes when combined with other ingredients such as nuts, seeds, or into a sauce.

Nutritional Yeast Info

Nutritional yeast is a compound rich in B vitamins, usually made from the yeast strain Saccharomyces cerevisiae. It is a rich source of vitamins B1 and B2 in particular, and is often fortified with vitamin B12, primarily due to its popularity in vegan and vegetarian cooking, making it a valuable source of B12 for vegans. Nutritional yeast is also a source of iron, and as it contains all essential amino acids is considered a complete protein.

 

How to Use Nutritional Yeast

The yeast comes as yellow powdery flakes that easily mix into recipes, and can be made into vegan ‘cheese’ or ‘cheese sauce’ by blending with ground nuts, tahini, oil or water. Sprinkled on top of foods it can be used on its own as a replacement for cheddar, making it equally useful for dairy-free diets.

    A great product with outstanding flavour. And no rice flour added! I need all the B12 I can get. White sauce with the addition of Lotus Savoury Yeast makes a great addition to vegetables or vegetable lasagne. Hard to realise there is no cheese added. And my dog loves it...very good for her.
