What is it?
Nutritional yeast is deactivated yeast (NOT brewer's yeast).
Why eat it?
It is packed with protein and B-vitamins. It is actually one of the only natural sources for B-12. A lot of vegans and vegetarians eat it because of this.
What does it taste like?
Kind of cheesy, kind of nutty and kind of tangy. Last night Troy and I tried it out on popcorn and both loved it. And that's saying something for Troy! When the weather cools down enough to make mashed potatoes, we're going to try it in that too.
Here is a link to some recipes online and here is even a bigger list of recipes.
Where can I get it?
At a health food store or online. I bought ours at Whole Earth Grainery downtown.
