Nutritional yeast flakes are derived from deactivated yeast and are rich in protein, B vitamins and trace minerals. Offering a nutty cheesy flavour, nutritional yeast flakes are great sprinkled over savoury dishes to enhance the flavour and nutritional profile.
Sometimes referred to as ‘nooch’, yeast flakes are made from deactivated or ‘non-live’ saccharomyces cerevisiae yeast – the same yeast that when activated or ‘alive’ is used to make beer and bread. Our nutritional yeast flakes are naturally full of protein which contributes to the growth and maintenance of muscle mass and potassium, phosphorous and niacin (B3).
Containing all 9 essential amino acids, nutritional yeast is a complete protein meaning it provides the amino acids that the body cannot produce by itself. Powerful antioxidants beta-carotene and alpha-mannan are also found in nutritional yeast flakes, both of which are responsible for protecting cells from oxidative damage by free radicals.
Our nutritional yeast flakes are free from additives, naturally rich in nutrients without fortification – a great addition to the plant-based diet. Add a generous sprinkle over salads, pasta dishes, soups and snacks.
