What is Nutritional Yeast?
Powdered (or rather, flaked) yeast, nooch, as it is more commonly known, is perfect for adding a cheesy, savory flavor to dishes. It is yellow-coloured flakes that have a yeasty smell, not the most pleasant of aromas, in my opinion, but when added to dishes, adds a unique umami flavor.
It is packed full of nutrients like minerals, vitamins and proteins, and is widely used by vegans.
