Customer Ratings & Reviews

Rated 1.9 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Brewer's Yeast I ordered this not realizing that it is a powder not flakes. The powder cakes up and is hard to dissolve. It has a bitter taste and I have tried grape juice and orange joice to make it more drinkable. January 8, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Bitter taste had to exchange it for another de-bittered brand. November 20, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by This brewers yeast is good. I do enjoy this brewers yeast, and find it is like I expect. September 19, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Awful taste The de-bittered declaration on the package seems like someone's idea of a bad joke. I actually quite like brewer's yeast, or at least I liked the brands I'd tried previously (Lewis's, though I promise they're not paying me to say so), but this is really bad. I'm finishing the jar because it's a decent value, brewer's yeast is not cheap, and it does provide a good vegan source of protein and B vitamins. It's just sad that I basically have to plug my nose or drown the yeast in maple syrup to get through it. The flavor is not easily masked. September 8, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Bitter Brewer's Yeast ....and NOW claims on the label "Reduced Bitterness" of this product. THIS BREWER'S YEAST IS EXTREMELY BITTER!!!! We discontinued using it after a few trials, taking less and less of it each time. IMPOSSIBLE, UNPALATABLE FOR US. July 26, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by BITTER!!! Unlike Swanson's brewers yeast, or the brewers yeast I used to buy from the health food store, which have an earthy taste and smell, this yeast tastes bitter and smells like brewing slurry. The most likely reason for this is hops, which are used for brewing bear, but not used when raising nutritional brewers yeast. July 1, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by not satisfied This stuff taste so awful I can't even bear it mixed with other things! No thanks! My dog won't even eat it. August 23, 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not worth price I ordered this thinking maybe it would taste something like what my grandmother used to give me years ago. The taste of this is simply terrible! It is a good thing my cats like it! February 29, 2012
