Not used for baking, but nutritional yeast boasts amazing nutritional benefits and flavor! Nutritional yeast has a strong flavor described as nutty, cheesy, or creamy. You can use in place of Parmesan cheese, in soups, or as a topping for popcorn. It is a source of protein and B-complex vitamins, and naturally low in fat and sodium.
It is produced by culturing yeast with sugarcane and beet molasses. After the fermentation process is completed the yeast is harvested, thoroughly washed, pasteurized, and dried on roller drum dryers. The B vitamins are both naturally produced during fermentation, and added to the cream prior to the drying process. Riboflavin (B2) and Cyanocobalamin (B12) are created during fermentation. Additional Riboflavin (B2) and Cyanocobalamin (B12) are added after fermentation along with Thiamine (B1), Pyridoxine HCL (B6), Niacin and Folic Acid.
Quality Notes: Due to the naturally occurring color variation of the molasses culture used to grow this yeast, some color variation may be present in the finished product.

Chaya’s Note: When we make homemade popcorn, this is the only topping we use; we do not even feel the need for salt!
