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. Not manufactured with wheat, gluten, soy, milk, egg, fish, shellfish or tree nut ingredients.

Nutritional Yeast Flakes is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 52.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from So good~ I was a bit reluctant to try nutritional yeast, but WOWEE... it is SO good on roasted veggies!! It looks like fish food, just get over that and sprinkle that delicious stuff on your roasted veggies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nutritional yeast This looks like fish food colored with that mac 'n cheese powdered cheese. I tasted it plain and it does have a sort of cheesy flavor with a hint of nuttiness to it. I don't like popcorn but some enjoy this on popcorn. I've tried it on pasta. It is a bit grainy in texture but the flavor is good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good Been using nutritional yeast for years. Mostly buy in bulk. This seems cheaper than bulk and has more fortification than other brands. I sprinkle on most savory foods

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good protein alternate source I've been using this for about 4 months and find it helps give me a bit more protein when my diet may be lacking on a particular day. Tasty as well. Good even sprinkled on a salad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Price at Swanson My favorite use for nutritional yeast is with popped air popcorn. Now I don't miss the salt or butter. I like the price & the 10 oz size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it Very nice flavor. My favorite is Kale chips, love them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!
Date published: 2016-05-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2014-05-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 !
Date published: 2014-03-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this ... adds nice flavor, especially to eggs

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful! Great tasting coffee alternative. Either brew in coffee pot by itself, or mix some with coffee. Great product!
Date published: 2013-12-07
Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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
Date published: 2013-11-29
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2013-11-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2013-11-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2013-11-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2013-10-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2013-09-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the taste and product. Great product to sub for cheese
Date published: 2013-08-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
