Nutritional Yeast Flakes with added B12
Dried nutritional yeast flakes are a great way for those with vegan diets to get a flavour of cheese in their meals. It’s also an excellent source of B vitamins.
Think of it like grated parmesan and use it accordingly, mainly to sprinkle over dishes for a savoury hit. But be careful not to overpower other flavours with it. Nutritional yeast can also be added as an ingredient during the cooking of vegetarian and vegan stews, or soups.
Nutritional yeast differs from active and beer yeasts because, after being grown commercially, the yeast is heat-treated to deactivate it, so it cannot ferment. Its special appeal is a relatively high flavour profile that is distinctly cheese-like and thus it can give a parmesan-style kick to vegan and vegetarian dishes.
