NOW Foods' pleasant tasting Nutritional Yeast Flakes are produced from a specially selected strain of Saccharomyces cerevisiae. This yeast is grown on enriched purified cane and beet molasses under carefully controlled conditions. This is a primary grown yeast and is therefore not a brewery by-product as is brewer's yeast. This ensures freedom from Candida albicans yeast. NOW Foods' Nutritional Yeast Flakes are a vegan/vegetarian dietary supplement. Contains no salt, starch, wheat, gluten, corn, soy, milk, egg, shellfish or preservatives.

Nutritional Yeast Flakes are popular within the Trim Health Mama community. Check out the low prices on our full selection of Trim Healthy Mama Plan-Approved Products!

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 45 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Buy/Great Product I ordered these Nutritional Yeast flakes recently for my son who is a Vegan. He has used so much of them so fast, I need to order more! May 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great cheesy flavor I use this to make kale chips. I mix this with raw organic cashews, lemon juice, hemp oil, salt & pepper. It gives the kale a wonderful cheesy flavor. My husband & I both love them. A wonderful and tasty way to eat kale! March 9, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by awesome value i had never heard of nutritional yeast until I saw it in a Swanson recipe for kale chips (which were a huge hit with family and friends including my 18 month old granddaughter). I researched nutritional yeast and found out it is a super food. It tastes great and I have incorporated it into as many recipes as I can! We love it! Swanson's price on this item is unbelievable compared to other health food stores. October 9, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent value I use this on popcorn, in vegan cream sauces, soups, or anywhere for a cheesy-nutty flavor. It is an excellent price and lasts quite long. May 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Taste & Value The price for these compared to my local health food store makes the Swanson offer a great value. I've tried other brands, and none are as whole and flaky as the NOW brand. Very tasty for my special home made organic popped corn topped with these yeast flakes, EVOO and Himalayan pink salt. YUMEE May 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wow ! This is what I have been searching for for energy. I use it every morning in my green shake, I love it on popcorn for a cheesy taste, and on gym nights, I add it to my protein shake before a workout. I wish I had discovered this years ago ! March 26, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this stuff! As someone with a restricted diet (for medical reasons) this is a very tasty way to supplement my diet. Swansons has the best price around so don't hesitate to try it out. If you haven't had this on popcorn or sprinkled on toast you are missing out! February 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nutritional Yeast Flakes This is a very good addition to soups or stews. Gives it a nice almost cheese taste and its very nutritional for your body. Good price for the amount, highly recommend. January 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this ... adds nice flavor, especially to eggs December 29, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful! Great tasting coffee alternative. Either brew in coffee pot by itself, or mix some with coffee. Great product! December 6, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Questionable I would like to find out more about the processing of this product after learning that heat can actually turn this stuff into basically MSG. So this is questionable as to how good it is for your health. As far as the flavor goes, it is very tastey. I enjoy it on yogurt with honey and berries. My dogs thoroughly enjoy it on their food as well! I tried it on popcorn but didn't care for that, I don't see it as cheesy flavor as some people commented they did. It isn't really comparable to any other food, it has its very own distinct flavor that I find delicious November 29, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Healthy and delicious I did not know what to expect as this was my first time using nutritional yeast. I was surprised by how delicious it was! I use it on salads, as a rub for chicken, in breads, etc...It is a terrific product. November 23, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice cheesy flavor Good to sprinkle on salads. Gives that cheesy flavor and extra texture while getting those B vitamins that may be lacking in your diet. November 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very satisfying I mix the nutrional yeast with my smoothies and it is so satisfying and filling. It gives me the added nutrition I was looking for. November 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love This Product First time I have every used this and now I add it to everything, vegetables, popcorn, meats. It is so tasty and delicious on everything. October 13, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good flavoring I add this to my dog's meals (rather than using Brewer's Yeast), and also use it for our human family members in place of parmesan cheese over spaghetti or steamed veggies to give them flavor. I really like the taste and it adds some B vitamins as well. September 25, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love the taste and product. Great product to sub for cheese August 26, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by flavor in a flake I bought this for a Trim Healthy Mama recipe, but I use it in everything! It adds a great flavor to eggs, soups, casseroles...I haven't found anything that isn't enhanced by nutritional yeast. Love this product! July 28, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Delicious and great way to get b vitamins. Also a great cheesey flavor for those of us who can't have lactose and/or dairy products. July 25, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by nutritional yeast love to sprinkle this on popcorn! July 25, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE THE FLAVOR IN POPCORN..AND SO MUCH MORE! Love the taste and the protein count of this product. We use on popcorn, add to smoothies, soups. Am becoming addicted to the flavor. Delicious and healthy - can't beat that! June 19, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Taste great We love to use it on our roasted veggies. Adds great flavor! May 31, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nutritional yeast This is a good way for a vegan to get adequate B12. Product is quite tasty on salads or casseroles. Will reorder again. May 30, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by An overall good product For those already into Nutritional flakes, this product offers the same nutritional value you would expect for a much higher priced variety. May 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Yeast I don't like the taste,but if it works I will use it. April 17, 2013
