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.

Try Nutritional Yeast Flakes in creamy Apple, Pumpkin & Squash Soup.

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
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
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
Love this ... adds nice flavor, especially to eggs December 29, 2013
Wonderful! Great tasting coffee alternative. Either brew in coffee pot by itself, or mix some with coffee. Great product! December 6, 2013
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
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
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
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
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
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
Love the taste and product. Great product to sub for cheese August 26, 2013
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
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
nutritional yeast love to sprinkle this on popcorn! July 25, 2013
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
Taste great We love to use it on our roasted veggies. Adds great flavor! May 31, 2013
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
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
Yeast I don't like the taste,but if it works I will use it. April 17, 2013
Excellent product These nutritional yeast flakes are easy to use and delicious. I mix them with tofu and onion as "cheese" for vegan spanakopita, and into a vegan "cheese" sauce for a variety of other recipes. Swanson is also the least expensive brand on the market, but the quality is nevertheless very high. Highly recommended! March 28, 2013
Good nutritional yeast I love this nutritional yeast! I'm a big fan of this on pasta, popcorn, rice, and even as a thickener in soups. March 5, 2013
We love this on popcorn. Pop your popcorn in olive oil or coconut oil, add himilayan salt and nutritional yeast. It tastes great and you get your B's. March 3, 2013
Really Good This yeast has a really nutty, rich flavor. Great as a replacement for saltier things like parmesan cheese. February 2, 2013
Vegetarian Boost If you are a vegetarian, you probably do not get enough protein and select vitamins. This product helps get the job done and it tastes great. I put it on soup, and salad. Has a cheesy taste. Recommend it. December 24, 2012
