Red Star Nutritional Yeast is a primary grown inactive yeast produced specifically for its inherent nutritional components. All natural low heat dried nutritional yeast flakes are over 50% protein and rich in B vitamins and minerals. Use it in soups, salads, casseroles and gravies, or sprinkle it on popcorn for a delicious and nutritious cheesy taste. Nutritional yeast is a great addition to vegetarian diets.

Red Star nutritional yeast is an excellent source of protein, vitamins and minerals. Primary grown nutritional yeast is derived from pure strains of Saccharomyces cerevisiae grown on mixtures of cane and beet molasses. After the fermentation process is completed the yeast is harvested, thoroughly washed and dried on roller drum dryers. The special growth medium and unique drying process are the secrets to the exceptional performance and flavor of Red Star nutritional yeast.

Red Star nutritional yeast is grown specifically for its nutritive value. In addition to protein, vitamins and minerals, it contains additional functional and beneficial components such as beta-1,3 glucan, trehalose, mannan and glutathione. Studies have shown that these components have potential health benefits such as improved immune response, reduction of cholesterol and anticancer properties. Red Star nutritional yeast is not made from byproducts of breweries, distilleries or paper mills. For added benefit, Red Star Nutritional Yeast has been fortified with additional B Vitamins. Contains no added sugars or preservatives. Non GMO and gluten free.

Some possible benefits of our Nutritional Yeast flakes may include:

● Supporting a strong immune system
● Supporting healthy cholesterol levels
● Good source of all B-Complex Vitamins

Caution: Nutritional Yeast yeast contains high amounts of tyramine, a substance that can raise blood pressure in some individuals. Tyramine can specifically interact with MAOIs and potentially cause a rapid and dangerous rise in blood pressure for people taking these medications. If you are taking any medications we recommend consulting your doctor before supplementing with Nutritional Yeast.
