Have you tried nutritional yeast? It’s a cheesy-ish tasting substance that we sprinkle on a lot of things. Sean sprinkles it on just about everything. It is a key ingredient in the bouillon mix we make that is scrumptious.
The cool thing about nutritional yeast is that it is inactive yeast and thus doesn’t have the negative effects of baker’s yeast. Although it does have 3 grams of carbs it also has 3 grams of fiber, so it is can be very helpful. It also has some protein and B vitamins. Because of that, it can give you energy.
It also boosts the immune system and can help stabilize blood sugar. It is also anti-viral and anti-bacterial. Oh and it contains powerful antioxidants.
Here are a few links to tell you about all those good things, because although I understand the words, I couldn’t really tell you what they mean.
- The product description here is helpful. We purchase ours from THM because it is one of the few that is not fortified. When nutritional yeast is fortified, it is more yellow because of the synthetic vitamins.
- This website talks about some of the benefits and explains them.
- This one explains how it provides the benefits.
- There can be some negative side effects, if you start out eating a lot at once. It does have fiber and that can cause a little irritation if you eat too much. Just start easy. We have not personally had any problems with it.
If you haven’t tried nutritional yeast yet, I recommend giving it a try.
Until next time, God bless,
