I have been seeing nutritional yeast in a lot of recipes. I have never used it. Is it different than regular yeast and if so, how? Where can you buy it? I have never seen it. Of course, I have never looked for it either.

I get mine at the local health food co-op.



It looks like little flakes. Not sure if that'll help.

I am going to go to Trader Joe's this weekend (it is about an hour away, but I am going to a couple of other places in the city as well). I will try to get some there.

a very nice short article, even tells where to get it

and the brand sold in bulk at my HFS is Red Star which has lots of B12 in it.

Nutritional yeast is not the same as regular yeast, or brewers yeast-- it actually must contain some part of its culture in it-- it has B12 and other B vitamins and a bunch of Amino Acids. I got some at Wild Oats. You can buy it on-line directly from Red Star if you have no health food stores in the area. Several companies make it including Red Star, and KAL. Look for Vegitarian Formula. Also look for non GMO, and Primarily Grown not a derivitive of the brewing industry (brewers yeast). I find it for 11-12 U.S. dollars. It makes a great hot drink, and is good to add to soups and stocks (but since it is high cost, you need to watch it).

If you are in the UK it is made by Marigold and it is called Engevita and cost about £2 for 125g.

I buy Red Star Nutritional Yeast in Mrs. Green's.

I bought a huge jar of some other brand in Wild Oats but it's not nearly as good as the Red Star IMO. The Red Star nut yeast comes in flakes; the other brand is way too fine.

I get mine at Atlantic SuperStore, which is a division on Loblaws I believe. I get it in the health food section. It isn't Red Star though. I think it says Bulk Food or something similar on the container, and it's in flakes.

I bought a six pound bucket of it online somewhere, but I can't remember where...



Not a heck of a lot of help, am I? I just did a google search of red star yeast. I think this bucket will last a while before I need to buy it again.

I bought some at Henrys (our local version of Wild Oats.) They have it in a big bin in the bulk foods section. It kinda has a cheesy taste (kinda like parmesan cheese). I throw some in spagetti sauce and stuff when I remember. It's delish.

In North America Red Star is packaged under several brands including KAL. They make a flake and a powder. As of at least a couple of years ago Red Star made the only yeast with B12 supplemented so if it has B12 is is probably Red Star despite the brand on the package.

I just bought some at the health food store in bulk. I was wondering how long it's good for? I keep it in the fridge. Last night was the first time I used it - on popcorn - deeeeelish!! It was kinda stinky but tasted like cheese popcorn.

Can you get a smaller amount or does it only come in really big containers? I would like to try it before getting lots of it. Also, do you also take multivitamins if you eat this stuff or do you feel that it is all you need with your healthy veggie eating?

No matter how stellar the diet, I would still recommend a good multi *takes a moment to thank the modern farming practices for this... *



If you can find it in bulk, I would suggest getting a little bit of it there (a store with a good bulk section might give you more luck than say, TJs). If you can only get it by the canister, then try for the smallest canister you can find. IIRC, you can order it online, too but I don't know how big the canisters are or even if it would be worth it or not.

Maybe I will swing by the Whole Foods market as long as I am going to be in Fresno.

On the west coast Winco and Fred Meyer both carry it in their bulk section, and it's less expensive than at Whole Foods.

That should work, actually. I dont remember if the Trader Joes here carries nutritional yeast, but I would frankly be shocked if they didnt.

If youre talking about KAL, it seems to me that theirs is nutty and not cheesy.

Find it at WholeFoods

Typically you can find this in the Bulk department at your local Whole Foods store or on the baking aisle.

Check ingredients at WF's! The one near me carries Red Star but not the vegetarian formula with B12. Worse yet, when I first questioned them it was because the label was illegable. They emailed me back something about not being available (?)

I used to get Red Star veg formula at another nfs that packaged it in containers in the fridge section- dated. Now I order Bobs Red Mill and think it's the best. Maybe I've just grown to like it more? Not sure, but I certainly use it a lot more. I keep a old spice shaker in the fridge.

What is amazing is that you can now find nutritional yeast in larger chain grocery stores, not just health food stores. I sometimes buy Bob's Red Mill nutritional yeast at Cub Foods in Minnesota. I have also bought it in bulk at my local Whole Foods Coop.

Yes! Almost all stores have the range of Bob's Red Mill products.
I keep checks on sales and stock up - that and Better than Boullion I can find cheaper with online sales and free shippings. I think last time it was vitacost with a 20% food discount code
