View Full Version : What is nutritional yeast?
07-27-2007, 05:30 PM
Hi folks. I'm from the UK and was in a couple of health food stores today and had a look for nutritional yeast and couldn't find any. I just saw the regular freeze dried yeast for making bread and things.
Is it called something different in the UK? Or maybe it's not available here? :confused:
I'm missing that cheesy taste, so any advice welcome :)

Okay I'll try my best to help you. First off, it's not raw but it has B12 in it although not naturally occuring B12. It does have a cheesy taste. It is a bright yellow flakey type of thing. Let's see if I can find a photo for you.
Here is a link to what it is: http://vegetarian.about.com/od/glossary/g/nutyeast.htm
Here are a few photos of it:
Look at the one bottom right second one in.
As for what it might be called in the UK I don't know. Also found this place that sells raw food in the UK:

That's really helpful - I'll try the new health food store I've found and see if they have it.
