Here in Gentle World, we’re big fans of nutritional yeast as a seasoning in all our savory dishes, as anyone who has had a cooking class at one of our centers (or anyone who owns one of our recipe books) can attest. We love the stuff!
Nutritional yeast provides a cheesy flavor to food, making it a favorite among many vegans. It’s great as in ingredient in pasta sauces, or for sprinkling on popcorn, garlic bread, or potatoes, as well as being an all-round seasoning for salads, salad dressings, soups, sauces, dips, casseroles and so much more!
A natural source of dietary fiber, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, nutritional yeast is a complete protein. It’s also naturally low in sodium and calories, as well as being fat-free, sugar-free, gluten-free, and MSG-free.
We recently learned that Foods Alive offers a great alternative to traditional nutritional yeast, by providing a product free from synthetic B-vitamins and GMOs.
Foods Alive is a family-owned and operated business that prides itself on caring about the quality of food and the effects of producing it on our planet. They also offer numerous flavors of snack crackers, artisan salad dressings with flax, hemp, chia and sesame oils, artisan cold-pressed oils, an extensive line of superfoods, and even glass straws!
