What Is It?

Nutritional Yeast is an inactive, primary grown yeast that is specially grown for its exceptional nutritional value. It is commonly known as nooch. To those who love everything nutritious, the unappetizing name does not detract from the fact that nutritional yeast is probably one of the most nutritious, versatile and tastiest vegan seasoning or condiment you can use daily in your kitchen, and in almost any recipe.  

Nature’s Superfoods Premium Nutritional Yeast Flakes is an excellent natural source of B vitamins (including B12, typically found in animal foods), zinc and dietary fibre. B vitamins are essential for many bodily functions, one of which is metabolism - helping the body to produce energy.

Nutritional yeast is also a source of high-quality, easy-to-digest complete protein (with all 9 essential amino acids that our bodies cannot produce on their own) and trace minerals.

Most nutritional yeast products are fortified with synthetic B-vitamins at the end of their production, but our Premium Nutritional Yeast is not! Nature’s Superfoods Nutritional Yeast Flakes are specially grown from primary yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) in vitamin B-enriched purified beet molasses (non-GMO), thus incorporating the vitamin into the living food. The yeast is later rendered inactive and dried into homogenous flakes. No artificial additives or preservatives are added.

Nature’s Superfoods Premium Nutritional Yeast Flakes are especially helpful for vegans/vegetarians, providing much-needed B vitamins (including the much-coveted Vitamin B12) and zinc. Per serving (10 g or 2 tablespoons), this Nutritional Yeast provides 5g of complete protein and more than 100% of the RDA (for adults) for Vitamin B12 and Zinc. 

For many, especially for vegetarians/vegans who may not be getting enough vitamin B12 or zinc in their diet, this is great news. Vitamin B12 is important in maintaining appropriate brain function and blood flow throughout our bodies. Symptoms of deficiency include fatigue, disorientation, memory loss, and rapid heartbeat. Non-vegetarians will also benefit from Nutritional Yeast’s essential B-vitamins which are important for a multitude of bodily functions including metabolic functions, brain functions, hair growth, etc.  

Adding/sprinkling Nature’s Superfoods Nutritional Yeast Flakes directly onto your daily meals is a quick, convenient way to ensure adequate intake of essential B vitamins and zinc, necessary for the proper functioning of our immune system, cell division and growth. In addition, Nutritional Yeast is an excellent companion to foods due to its richness in flavour and creaminess in texture.

Nature’s Superfoods’ Premium Nutritional Yeast Flakes has a delicious, cheese-like and nutty taste and there are no artificial ingredients, flavourings, additives or preservatives. Excellent for vegans/ vegetarians and those looking for added nutrition in their diet. Free from common food allergens such as dairy, soy, nuts and wheat/gluten. Also free from Candida albicans yeast.

It’s important to note that nutritional yeast is not the same as brewer’s yeast. Brewer’s yeast is a by-product of beer-making and used in making bread. While in the same scientific family known as saccharomyces cerevisiae, nutritional yeast is far superior to brewer’s yeast, and is much higher in B-complex vitamins than wheat germ and many other natural food products.

Taste/Texture:  Yellow in color, cheesy & nutty taste

This superfood is now available in Singapore in 150g resealable pouches.

How to Use

Nutritional yeast is yummy, can be consumed as it is.  Versatile with any recipe. Readily dissolves in water, milk, fruit or vegetable juices. Makes a delicious topping. Can be used as a substitute for cheese in recipes and utilized as a low-calorie condiment to replace Parmesan cheese or sour cream.

For beginners to Nutritional Yeast, start with ¼ tbsp and increase to 1-2 tablespoons (6-10g). Not advisable to consume more than 3 tablespoons a day.

  1. Add 1-2 tablespoons directly into rice, soups, dips, salad dressings, pastas, cereals, juices and smoothies, for an umami flavour and nutritional boost.
  2. Sprinkle over vegetable dishes, sauces, gravies, scrambles, chips, bread, popcorn or on just about anything. It’s an excellent vegan cheese substitute.

 

Recommended Serving: 6-10g (1-2 tablespoons) a day. To preserve heat-sensitive vitamins, it is advisable not to use Nutritional Yeast in high-heat recipes.

Storage: Store in closed containers in a cool, dry and clean place.
Best kept refrigerated. Keep package out of direct sunlight.

Health Benefits

1. A Great Source of Vitamin B12 (excellent for vegans or vegetarians)

One of the vitamins most commonly associated with deficiencies is Vitamin B12, which is essential for healthy blood and nervous system, brain health, DNA production and energy production.

Malabsorption is the most common cause of vitamin B12 deficiency.

It is important to note that B12 gets depleted during periods of stress. B12 is particularly essential during pregnancy to support the growth of the developing foetus.

As Vitamin B12 is mostly found in animal foods such as meat, eggs, and milk products, vegans and/or vegetarians are more likely to develop a vitamin B12 deficiency. Some symptoms of Vitamin B12 deficiency are such as weakness, a lack of energy, shortness of breath, nerve problems like numbness or tingling, muscle weakness, vision loss, digestive disorders, mental problems like depression or memory loss, etc. 

Meat-eaters will also benefit from Nutritional Yeast’s essential B-vitamins which are important for various bodily functions including metabolic functions, brain functions, healthy skin & hair, etc.   One serving (10g or 2 tablespoons) of Nature’s Superfoods Nutritional Yeast Flakes provide you with most, if not all, of your daily value of B vitamins.

 2. Boosts Immunity

Nutritional yeast has the compounds beta-1,3 glucan, trehalose, mannan and glutathione – these have been associated with enhanced immunity, improved cholesterol levels and risk reduction of cancer.

In addition, nutritional yeast also has anti-viral and anti-bacterial benefits. It is considered a good yeast that fights candida yeast infection and other bacterial invaders in the body, including E. coli, staph, and salmonella.

 3. Improves Digestive Health

The fibre beta-1,3 glucan helps maintain balance in the digestive tract while also improving bowel movement. Considered a fermented food, nutritional yeast contains tens of thousands of beneficial bacteria that the body can use to maintain digestive balance. Its probiotic benefit has been used for centuries for digestive issues including indigestion and diarrhoea.

4. Beneficial for Athletes

According to an Oregon State University research published in the International Journal of Sport Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism - active individuals lacking in B-vitamins may perform worse during high-intensity exercise and have a decreased ability to repair and build muscle than counterparts with nutrient-rich diets. Nutritional yeast can be a valuable source of B-vitamins.

Also, a 2013 study published in the British Journal of Nutrition found that athletes who ate beta-glucan fibre derived from yeast for 10 days before strenuous exercise had higher circulating immune cells two hours after exercising, suggesting their immune systems recovered faster from the stress of exercise.

 5. Promotes Healthy Hair, Skin and Nails

Vitamin B speeds up cell metabolism and can promote healthy skin, hair and nails. Low Vitamin B levels can lead to stunted hair growth, slow cell division among hair follicles, and even hair loss. Nutritional yeast is a rich source of all B vitamins as well as zinc which is a vital mineral to support healthy skin and hair.

Nature’s Superfoods Premium Nutritional Yeast Flakes have no added sugars; it has a low Glycemic Index (GI) and will not spike your blood sugar levels. Diabetic-friendly – being high in protein and dietary fibre, its high-fibre content makes you stay full longer and have a better digestive system.
