Nutritional Yeast

What is it? Nutritional yeast (a.k.a. Nooch) is amazing, magical vegan dust that gives food a cheesy, nutty, buttery kind of taste!

Nutritional yeast contains just 80 calories per serving and packs in a slew of vitamins and minerals including over 200% daily value of: B-6, B-12, folic acid, Thiamine, Riboflavin, Niacin, and Biotin!  Plus, 9g of protein, 5g of fiber, 0g sugar, and only 5mg of sodium!  Like I said- magic! You may be able to find it at your local health-food store, but we order ours online.  A bit of a bother, I know, but it can be used in so many recipes and provides such a tasty (and healthy) element to dishes, that it is worth it!

*Specific values vary from brand to brand.
