We all love cheese. Cheese is expensive when you buy from the market. I had to find an alternative as my kids love cheese. I came across Nutritional yeast in the supermarket. It is different from Baker’s yeast. Nutritional yeast is a deactivated yeast. It is sold in the form of flakes or as a yellow powder and can be found in many big super markets. It is popular with vegans and vegetarians and may be used as an ingredient in recipes or as a condiment.
It contains trace amounts of several vitamins and minerals. It is only an excellent source of some B-complex.
Nutritional yeast has a strong flavor that is described as nutty, cheesy, or creamy. It is often used by vegans in place of cheese.]It can be used in salads,pasta, sanwiches,sprinkle on toasted bread. It is healthy and can be easily made at home too. It is dairy free so it can be consumed by any one who is allergic to dairy products.
