Broccoli Spinach/Kale Artichokes Peppers Purple Peruvian Potatoes Sweet Potatoes Nutritional yeast, also known as “nooch,” is a favorite among vegans and vegetarians because it mimics cheese flavor. It’s a great source of plant-based protein, which is good for people on plant diets. It’s also loaded with important B vitamins, including vitamin B12 that keeps nerves and energy in check. This is especially important for vegans because B12 mainly comes from animal foods. Nutritional yeast is low in fat and has fiber, which helps digestion and keeps blood sugar steady. It has a savory taste that spices up many dishes, like popcorn, pasta, soups, and casseroles. So, adding nutritional yeast to your meals not only boosts nutrition but also gives them a yummy, cheesy kick.

Nutritional yeast is a deactivated yeast. This means it’s not a live yeast like the kind used in baking or brewing. It’s grown specifically for its nutritional value and savory flavor, rather than for leavening bread or fermenting beverages.
