Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Value This Is the lowest price for Yeast flakes. I was concerned that the quality would not be good. The fakes are quite small, not much bigger than mini flakes, but the taste is really good. It tastes fresh and cheesy as good yeast should.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Value Kal brand yeast flakes are a great deal and a good source of vitamin B. I like to put 2/3 of a cup of pecans, 1/3 cup yeast flakes into my food processor and process as fine as I can then add a little pink Himalayan salt to taste and give it another whirl in the processor. I put this in a shaker container and use it on popcorn , pasta, veggies and whatever. It's wonderful !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this yeast! The taste of this yeast is great (if you generally like yeast) and it mixes very easily. I have consumed yeast since I was 9 years old. My Dad became a vegetarian before I was born so we grew up with really nutritious foods and supplements. Yeast is a complete protein and is full of B vitamins. I especially use it as an antidote after consuming anything with sugar to restore the B vitamins that sugar allegedly uses up in digestion.
