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.
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.
