How to use nutritional yeast

What inactive dry yeast flakes are obtained from

Unlike the yeast used in baking bread, which is activated, the cells in dry yeast flakes are deactivated following a special process.

The final product is presented and packaged in the form of inactive dry yeast flakes, making it ideal for vegans and vegetarians.

What are we looking for inactive dry yeast flakes:


♥ They are a rich and complete source of protein

Inactive yeast flakes contain the new essential amino acids found in animal proteins.
That’s why they’re one of the few vegan options that qualify as a complete protein.
Fortunately, two tablespoons of dry dormant yeast flakes contain 10 grams of protein.
This means that it not only ensures satiety, but also helps maintain healthy muscle tone.

They are a healthy source of fiber

Two tablespoons of dry dormant yeast flakes contain 4 grams of solid fiber.
In addition to providing satiety, fiber is necessary to promote digestive health.
They provide us with regular intestinal transit.

They are rich in antioxidants

Inactive dry yeast flakes have a high concentration of antioxidants, especially glutathione.
It is essential for protecting cells from oxidative stress and removing toxins from the body.
As we age, antioxidant production decreases and we need increased glutathione intake.

♥ Nutritional yeast flakes are a rich source of vitamin B12

Vitamin B12 is necessary for the production of red blood cells and maintaining the health of the nervous system.
Vitamin B12 deficiency can lead to anemia and can underlie neurological conditions.
Normally, we obtain this vitamin from animal products (eggs, dairy), but also from plant products.

That’s why vegans and vegetarians need an extra source of vitamin B12.
This may consist of dry dormant yeast flakes that are vegan.
Two tablespoons every two days is enough to provide all the necessary vitamin B12.

Stabilizes blood glucose levels

Inactive dry yeast flakes contain low sugar levels, which is why they can help stabilize blood glycemic levels.
This entails:

  • reducing cravings for certain foods
  • increased energy levels,
  • improving sleep
  • lowering the risks of metabolic diseases.
Helps reduce cholesterol

Inactive dry yeast flakes contain beta glucan, a type of fiber that helps reduce cholesterol levels.
Beta glucan is known for its heart health benefits; It is also found in certain cereals (barley, oats).

How to use inactive dry yeast flakes

Dormant yeast does not lead to food growth as bakery does, but it does provide taste and aroma to food, along with vital nutrients.
Due to their nutty and parmesan flavor , nutritional dry yeast flakes can be added to many foods, or sprinkled over:

  • Salad
  • mashed potatoes or cauliflower
  • cream soups
  • vegetable meatballs
  • Sautés
  • pasta
  • Eggs
  • tofu

We can use dry dormant yeast flakes in combination with soaked and blended cashews to make a vegan sauce with intense cheese flavor.

With two tablespoons of inactive dry yeast flakes our body receives 50 mg sodium, 6 g carbohydrates, 4 g fiber and 10 g of protein.
