Nutritional Yeast Benefits
Nutritional yeast is packed with essential vitamins and minerals. It’s one of the best non-animal sources of folic acid and vitamin B-12. Nutritional Yeast fulfills your entire daily vitamin B needs.
Nutritional Yeast nutrition facts – On average, two tablespoons of Nutritional Yeast provides 60 calories with 5 g of carbohydrates (of which 4 g is fiber). A serving also provides 9 g of protein and is a complete protein, providing all nine amino acids the human body cannot produce. Another benefit is it is Gluten Free. I use it most places I would use Parmesan cheese. Gluten Free is something my husband and I have been researching more into for our bodies and skin.
The yeast itself is grown on beets and dehydrated. Nutritional Yeast is a superfood, packed with benefits. Sprinkle it over foods for a nutty, cheesy flavor. I adore it sprinkled over popcorn. Soy sauce and nutritional yeast are a great combination also when making a healthy salad dressing or a marinade for wings.
How to eat Nutritional Yeast – Sprinkle on your popcorn, add to salads, replace any cheese with nutritional yeast. Post coming next week with nutritional yeast recipes.
