Not all nutritional yeast is created equal –
Red Star's formula is made specifically for supporting the needs of
vegans and vegetarians with added vitamins and minerals you won't
find in other brands (it is a great natural source of all B
vitamins, especially B-12). Handy 5 oz. shaker bottle makes it easy
to use as much or as little as you'd like, so no more big bags to
mess with. Use it in soups, salads, casseroles and gravies, or
sprinkle it on popcorn for a delicious and nutritious cheesy taste.
There are many, many uses for it, so be sure to take a look at

Perfect on pasta, popcorn, pizza, and a million other things!

This stuff is wonderful. I use it almost everyday in a lot of foods. It has a cheesy flavor to it which makes it a wonderful addition to almost anything that asks for cheese.
Not only that, but it's packed full of the B vitamins. Like some other users, I initially bought this for the B12, but it comes in handy for far more than that.
Versatile and Delicious!

Wow, this product is amazing! I just discovered it in 2011 and I haven't looked back since. I originally bought it for the B-12 supplement, since I'm Vegan. But I've found I add it to many dishes bcs of its taste. Put it in Spaghetti dishes in place of parm. cheese. Add it to casserole dishes. Mix it with an avocado or Vegenaise as a sandwich or cracker spread. It's so satisfying I don't buy the other Vegan cheese products. I'm never without it now!
cats, kidneys & nutritional yeast
From Hilary of Ridgecrest, California on .
I recently read that over 3T of nutritional yeast per day can cause an increase of uric acid in the blood causing kidney problems or gout. So, it is feasable that in a small animal, such as a cat, that is could result in a kidney/urination problem. I read this at http://vegangrandma.blogspot.com/2006/11/vegan-melty-pizza-cheese-and-some.html
That being said, I'm a new vegan who lives in a remote town. I'm looking forward to ordering my first containter of nutritional yeast. I can't find it in my town at all!

I'm a new vegetarian (lacto-ovo), but I want to cut my consumption of eggs and dairy by at least 50% right off the bat as I'd rather not rely on them as staple foods. This was my first time trying nutritional yeast, period, and I was a little nervous. Would it be gross? Would it be a waste of money? Could it REALLY be used in as many things as it claims?
My first taste was just the yeast, straight. While the taste wasn't great on its own, it kind of tasted like a cheesy "chicken" bullion powder to me. I started putting it in savory dishes and I haven't been disappointed yet! I will definitely purchase this again.
