Nutritional Yeast is a tasty Super Food for daily nutrition that is rich in B vitamins. They are a good source of high quality, bioavailable protein, containing both essential and non-essential amino acids, that is suitable for everyone, including vegans and vegetarians. These nutritional flakes are made with a specially selected strain of Saccharomyces cerevisiae (specially grown on molasses) that undergoes a fermentation process under carefully controlled conditions. It does not encourage candida or other yeast growth. Enjoy adding 1 or 2 tablespoons to a salad, soup or smoothie to give it a hearty, nutty taste. Children (and even pets) love the taste.
These are the PRL Premier Nutritional Yeast flakes (previously labelled as Protein flakes). We also have the Quantum Nutritional Flakes available.
PRL Protein Flakes and Quantum Nutritional Flakes are produced by the same company. They both contain 18 amino acids, including good amounts of lysine and tryptophan. They are rich in B-complex vitamins, especially helpful for stress reduction and contain 15 minerals. The difference between them is:
- PRL Protein flakes are completely free of additives and have a mild taste. The Nature Foods ethos is "as natural as possible" so this is our first choice.
- Quantum Nutritional Flakes have added B vitamins to bring them to a specified B vitamin level. They have a stronger taste, which some of our customers like better.
In the Superfoods chapter of Nourishing Traditions, Sally Fallon says: "Dried nutritional yeast is an excellent natural source of B complex vitamins (except for B12) plus a variety of minerals. Look for yeast that has been processed at low temperatures. Yeast does not contribute to candida as has been claimed— candida feeds on refined carbohydrates, not yeast. The late eminent physician Dr. Henry Bieler treated many cases of chronic fatigue with yeast supplements."
Sprinkle 1 or 2 teaspoons over any food to impart a rich, hearty, nutty-like flavor.Serving size: (2 Tbs) per container: 13
