Savoury Nutritional Yeast Flakes
Savoury Nutritional Yeast Flakes have a very pleasant delicate ‘cheesy’ flavour. They are a plant based source of protein. The protein and fibre content promote ‘fullness’ after meals and the B vitamins help in energy production.
Golden yellow in colour, savoury nutritional yeast flakes are a dairy free ‘cheesy’ tasting food seasoning. It is the same strain of yeast bakers use to leaven bread except it has been pasteurised to dry out the yeast in order to extract its nutritional benefits. The yeast is grown in vats of molasses, nutrients and water. Once the yeast is mature, it gets poured out onto a conveyor belt and goes through a drying process that breaks it down into little flakes.
A tablespoon sized serving is just 20 calories yet has a surprisingly dense amount of protein. Add to soups, pasta sauces and scrambled eggs. Sprinkle over popcorn, salads and vegetables. A perfect cheese replacement.
