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 Joanne

Love This Stuff
From Tiffany of Somewhere, Kentucky on .
Love this stuff. The shaker is nice, but I finally got the big bucket months ago and it's going great. Love the added vitamins, great idea for marketing and good for us.
From Melissa of Westborough, Massachusetts on .
Perfect on pasta, popcorn, pizza, and a million other things!
From Suru of Ledyard , Connecticut on .
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!
From Kim of Jacksonville, Florida on .
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!
