What is nutritional yeast?

Yeasts are single-celled fungi. Edible yeasts include baker’s yeast, brewer’s yeast and nutritional yeast. While all three are variants of the same species, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, each has a different use. Baker’s yeast is a live active yeast that is used for helping baked goods rise. Brewer’s yeast is a live active yeast that is used for brewing beer. Nutritional yeast is an inactive yeast that is consumed for its nutritional content.

RED STAR Nutritional Yeast is a primary-grown nutritional yeast, meaning it is cultivated expressly for its nutritional components.
