Brewer's yeast isn't essential. If you're low on B vitamins (B1, B2, B3, B6) it might elevate your vitamin intake. If you suffer from gout, it makes things worse (being high in purine bodies). You might spread it on pasta instead of cheese.

Brewers yeast tastes terrible. 'Nutritional yeast' tastes much better and can be used to flavour and add texture to seitan and to make cheese subsitutes.<br><br><br><br>

Brewers yeast is activated to produce bubbles in the fermentation process and tastes very, very bitter. Nutritional yeast is grown on molasses and is de-activated and is not bitter and is quite pleasant tasting. Its also said that eating activated (ie brewers) yeast means yeasts will grow in your intestines robbing your body of nutrients. Go with nutritional yeast if you plan on eating it. I use this one: <a href="http://www.goodnessdirect.co.uk/cgi-local/frameset/detail/579698.html" target="_blank">http://www.goodnessdirect.co.uk/cgi-...il/579698.html</a>

once a lady at a health store tried to sell me brewer's yeast when they were all out of nutritional yeast flakes...the catch, she told me it was just the same...I don't think it is!!!
