Do Nutritional yeast and Brewer's yeast taste the same?



I'm not quite sure what nutritional yeast is. As far as I can make out, where I live, I can only find Brewer's yeast.

Brewer's Yeast





Nutritional Yeast







From what I have heard, they taste quite different. I've tasted nutritional yeast, but never brewer's yeast.

I've tried both. They taste different. Nutritional yeast is what should be eaten, NOT brewer's yeast, in my opinion.

Okay, now I understand why my uncheese fondue that I made tasted so awful. I used brewer's yeast, thinking it was probably the same thing as nutritional yeast!!!!



Ahimsa: Why do you say Brewer's yeast should not be eaten? The organic shops here always sell is as a wonder food of some sort. It contains B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin), B5 (pantothenic acid), B6 (pyridoxine), B9 (folic acid), and H or B7 (biotin). As well as selenium and chromium.

deactivated brewers yeast is sold as a supplement, but it tastes pretty foul. nutritional yeast isn't apparently foul, just cheesy.



its not available as widespready in europe as it is in the US, as far as i'm aware. you might have to ask a healthfood shop to order it, or buy it online.



if you do see it in shops, it might be called 'engevita' and be made by marigold, and be in a tub like this. like this: http://www.goodnessdirect.co.uk/cgi-...kes__125g.html

insanOr: I can find that product you mention at the local Casino supermarket. But I didn't realise that it was nutritional yeast. Thank you.

You're welcome. I was confused first too, since it's called "Edelhefe" and the german term for nutritional yeast would be "Nährhefe" - but it's the same.
