Large Flake Nutritional Yeast is made from a single-celled organism, Saccharomyces cerevisiæ, grown on cane and beet molasses. The yeast is harvested, washed, pasteurized and dried with heat to “deactivate” it. Because it’s inactive, it has no ability to leaven like baking yeast, but works great as a seasoning and non-dairy cheese substitute. Nutritional yeast adds nutty, umami and slightly cheesy flavor to soups, gravies, sauces or eggless scrambles. Use large-flake nutritional yeast for toppings and as a finish seasoning, and in dishes where you really want to boost the cheesy flavor. Our bulk nutritional yeast flakes are kosher certified and non-irradiated.
Suggested uses: Sprinkle on popcorn and salads. Use in pasta dishes and baked entrees such as dairy-free macaroni and cheese.
