Nutritional Yeast

What do you know about nutritional yeast? Not only does it appear in Super Baby Food, but it also appears on several food blogs that I have been reading. A nutty, cheesy taste and vegetarian supplement?? Why have I not heard of this before? I want to try it out, but don't want to buy in bulk just yet. Anyone have any info?


  1. I loved it, but then I found out that people who are allergic to penicillin often have issues with yeast as well, so I stopped using it.

  2. I'm curious too after seeing it on a blog yesterday. I wonder if those of us who are prone to yeast infections should stay away from it? Also I've heard of a lactation cookie recipe that has a lot of yeast and oatmeal on it to help increase milk supply. I wonder if this is the same type of yeast.

  3. After reading about it on several blogs I decided to give it a shot - I LOVE it! I'm allergic to dairy and don't eat much meat, so I'm always looking for ways to add vitamins and minerals to my diet. Its Gluten free, up to 52% essential amino acid protein, super high in B vitamins and folic acid (great for your new baby). I've tried it in salads, with my veggie scramble in the morning, with my red curry quinoa - it can go on almost anything and adds a nutty, thick taste. Whole Foods has it in bulk so try out a small bag at first and see if you like it. Best wishes, Elizabeth
