  •  Description

    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.

  • Easy Vegan Super Nut Cheese Recipe

    Cheese. We all love cheese.

    Here's an easy, healthy Super Nut Cheese Recipe that packs in the cheesy flavor, while being dairy-free, cholesterol-free, and 100% plant-based. Perfect for hot bread, added to pasta sauces, or slathered on lentil-mushroom burgers.

    A great alternative for those who are allergic to dairy, those who crave cheese but are watching their cholesterol, those who are avoiding casein to battle cancer (casein is a main component of conventional cheese and is strongly linked to cancer), those who avoid dairy for compassionate reasons, or those who just want to be proactive about their health and live an overall Super life.

    The secret behind the cheesy flavor? This one is made with the latest addition to our Super roster: Nutritional Yeast.

    This basic recipe is easy to make -- made with only a blender and done in 10 minutes.

    • 1 cup raw cashews, soaked in water overnight or in hot water for 2 hours until soft, strained
    • ¼ cup The Superfood Grocer's Nutritional Yeast
    • ¼ + ⅛ tsp lemon juice
    • 1 tbsp light to medium brown miso paste (Available in the Asian section in supermarkets or in Korean groceries)
    • ½ tsp sea salt, lessen or add to taste
    • 2 tbsp refined (deodorized) coconut oil (for a creamier texture)



    1. Blend all ingredients together. If using a non-high speed blender, blend at low to medium speed and regularly stop to scrape the sides with a spatula and mix. Blend again and repeat until smooth.
    2. Transfer the contents to a bowl or container. Can enjoy at once (softer consistency) or refrigerate to set for a more solid, spreadable nut cheese.
    3. Taste improves over time. Can store for up to 1 week.



    #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.
