So, what is nutritional yeast?

Nutritional yeast is a deactivated yeast that is commonly used as a food ingredient for its savory, cheese-like flavor and nutritional benefits. It is a rich source of protein, fiber, vitamins, and minerals, making it a popular choice among vegans and vegetarians as a plant-based alternative to dairy products. Nutritional yeast is also low in fat and calories, making it a great addition to a healthy diet. It can be sprinkled on top of popcorn, salads, or pasta dishes to add a delicious umami flavor, or used as a base for vegan cheese sauces and dips.
