Nutritional yeast is derived from specially selected pure strains of Saccharomyces cerevisiae and obtained by patented process. With nutritious characters, it is a great source of complete protein, B vitamins, dietary fiber,minerals and trace minerals. Made from primary inactive yeast without additives or preservatives, Nutritional yeast is a purely natural food. A primary strain of Saccharomyces Cerevasiae, grown on enriched purified molasses under carefully controlled conditions, ensures freedom from candida albicans yeast. Also because it does not come in contact with barley (like brewery by-product as is brewer’s yeast), it is gluten free and safe for people with Celiac disease.
