Nutritional yeast (not to be confused with baker’s yeast or brewer’s yeast) is a deactivated source of yeast grown on molasses. It has a subtle flavor that is typically used in recipes as a dairy-free cheesy flavor substitute.
Nutritional yeast is one of the best plant-based sources of Vitamin B12, crucial for proper brain functioning. It is also high in protein, accounting for half of its weight in grams. One tablespoon (8g) of nutritional yeast provides 4g of protein and will meet the recommended dosage for adults of Vitamin B12.

It is also a great source of dietary fiber, folic acid, and Vitamin B6, while being low in sodium, cholesterol-free, and saturated fat-free.

|How to Use||
Sprinkle on healthy dishes, soups, sauces or use as an ingredient to make dairy-free cheese alternatives.
#1 Always have pre-soaked nuts on hand by storing these in your freezer (strained).
#2 Best to use a high speed blender (We do carry durable and renowned brands such as JTC Omniblend and Vitamix Blenders. If interested, you can order here and have these delivered to your doorstep within the Philippines!). If you don't have a high speed blender, you can still make this. Just make sure to pause frequently and scrape off the sides with the spatula and manually mix before blending again. Repeat until smooth. Best to blend at low to medium speed if using a non-high speed blender.
#3 If using a high speed blender with a tamper or stick (as in JTC Omniblend or Vitamix Blenders), blend while pushing down the tamper repeatedly to push the contents towards the blade. This is also easier if the recipe is doubled, so that the tamper can easily reach and press down the mixture towards the blade for a smoother consistency.
