Nutritional yeast

15088626_lNutrition boosters are supplemental foods that add vitamins and minerals to your meals. Nutritional yeast is an excellent example of a nutrition booster; just one sprinkle can turn an ordinary snack into a super healthy snack.

WHAT IS IT? Nutritional yeast is deactivated yeast similar to brewer’s yeast. It is widely known for its vitamin B-12 content, which is added to the yeast. It contains about 133% B-12 content in 1.5 tablespoons. These little flakes are high in protein too; one ounce of nutritional yeast contains 14 grams of protein and 79 calories. Nutritional yeast is an excellent alternative to animal based protein.

HOW TO USE IT? It has a cheesy, nutty and creamy flavor and is often used in place of cheese in vegan recipes. It can be added to freshly made popcorn, pastas, or used on top of salads and hot breads. It’s healthy and delicious.
