Nutritional yeast is yellow in color and with a nutty cheesy flavor, its an inactive yeast that is a favorite amongst many vegans because of its unique flavor and similarity to cheese when added to foods. Its rich in B-complex vitamins and B12 which is one of the rare vegan sources of B12.
Where To Get It:
Nutritional yeast can be found at Bulk Barn food stores. Make sure when your buying it at the Bulk Barn to get it in packages that say gluten free. I made the mistake of buying it from their bulk bins and I had a very bad reaction to it. The nutritional yeast in the bins has gluten in it. Nutritional yeast can also be found in health food stores and some supermarkets. I buy mine at Fortinos Supermarket Be sure you don’t get brewer’s yeast by mistake, as its quite similar in appearance. It's best if you store your nutritional yeast in the freezer to keep it fresh.
