This yeast is grown on molasses. It is a source of protein and vitamins, especially the B-complex vitamins. It is also naturally low in fat and sodium. Nutritional yeast has a strong flavor that is described as nutty, cheesy, or creamy, which makes it popular as an ingredient in cheese substitutes. It is often used by vegans in place of parmesan cheese. Another popular use is as a topping for popcorn. It is also suitable for use in spice mixes and nutritional products. The flakes act as a flavour enhancer and can be used to reduce salt levels.
