Nutritional yeast is actually a deactivated yeast from a species of Saccharomyces cerevisiae, different from the one used in beer production aka brewer’s yeast πŸ˜‰β 
⁠
What makes nutritional yeast deactivated is the heating and drying process after its grown.⠀⁠
⠀⠀⁠
With just 2 tbsp a day you will get not only 8.5g of protein but also hit more than 100% of your RDI on most B vitamins! The true definition of a superfood which is not only loaded with B vitamins but also a significant source of folate, phosphorus and zinc πŸ™ŒπŸ½β 
⁠
You can find it in most health food stores and it is usually in the form of flakes or powder and there are two types of nutritional yeast β€” unfortified and fortified.⁠
⁠
Unfortified: This type does not contain any added vitamins or minerals. It only contains the vitamins and minerals that are naturally produced by the yeast cells as they grow.⁠
⁠
Fortified: This type contains synthetic vitamins added during the manufacturing process to boost nutrient content. If vitamins have been added to the yeast, they will be included in the ingredients list.⁠
⠀⁠
Pro tip: nutritional yeast is often fortified with B12, but since you’d need 2-3 tbsp per day, it can be cheaper & more efficient to supplement!⁠
⁠
We like to add it to sauces like vegan mac β€˜n’ cheese or sprinkle on top of pasta dishes! ⁠
