Look nutritional yeast up on Wiki for a description of what it is.<br><br>
I use a lot of it in creamy veggie soups and in mac and *cheese* to add a cheesy flavor, and I add smaller amounts to other soups, stews and sauces to add depth of flavor. I also add it to the mix when I make seitan.

Nutritional yeast tasted like cheesy sunflower seeds when I tried it for the first time. I love making 'cheez' sauces out of it for mac & cheez, nacho cheez, etc. and I sprinkle it on just about everything. Recently got into nooch (slang for nutritional yeast) toast. Some earth balance on toast with nooch sprinkled over it.<br><br>
And yes, atm = at the moment.

Nutritional Yeast = the name of my superhero identity. I was originally just spreading terror among the lowlife and criminals as "The Yeast", but then the 'Nutritional' was added to my name because amidst kicking ass, I also provided nutritional information to help the bad guys/gals live more healthy lives upon their reintroduction to society.

Nutritional Yeast is brilliant on popcorn and sprinkled on pizza <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/popcorn.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Popcorn">

Ok where do I find it? It's different from regular baking yeast right? I wonder does eating it in large amounts causes more yeast infections?

It's great on pasta as well as a "sprinkle cheese" type substitute. I sometimes mix a little in with hummus or vegenaise for some added protein.

Whole foods or any similar type of market are the only places I've ever seen it. But then again I haven't looked for it anywhere else...

You can find it at health food stores. You can also buy massive amounts at bulkfoods.com. I've never had yeast infection problems from eating nutritional yeast, but I wouldn't say I eat large amounts either. That doesn't mean you can't, though.<br><br>
It's definitely different from regular baking yeast. It doesn't make bread rise.

It is completely different from baking yeast, and no, it does not cause yeast infections.<br><br>
Whole Foods, health food stores, or online.

Nutritional yeast is a <i>deactivated</i> yeast. You would be no more likely to get a yeast infection from it than you would from eating any non-yeast food.

Agreed that it's awesome on popcorn with a squirt of lime juice. :9 Have never gotten a yeast infection and I eat a crap ton of nooch. My regular grocery store sells it but most might not. Definitely check out the whole/natural foods stores if you can't find it.

I buy it in my local Fry's store (Fry's is part of the Kroger stores) in the bulk bins which are located in what I call the "healthy" section. Different stores use different names for those 3 rows of gluten-free/organic/veg*n items.

Exactly what it says on the tin, and it tastes about like you'd expect, although it kind of grows on you after a while. Kind of like what happens to my cousin Sally sometimes except less disgusting.

Nutritional yeast is the same species as baker's yeast (<i>Saccharomyces cerevisiae</i>), but a different strain than what you would bake with. The cells are broken up in nutritional yeast, so there is no living yeast left. It has no relationship to the yeast that causes yeast infections (<i>Candida albicans</i>).

It kinda smells like dirty feet and it makes your pee neon yellow if you eat a lot of it. It's good stuff though.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/popcorn.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Popcorn">

Yay for glow in the dark pee! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br>
I too, am a fan. We have none in the house right now, as I went to the hfs on Saturday and they were all out (till Tuesday). Oi, the tragedy!
