How to Benefit From Nutritional Yeast

Save

Yeast, believe it or not, is a valuable nutritional supplement as it contains high levels of protein and vitamins. Nutritional yeast is a non-active form of yeast that you can use in a number of ways in the kitchen and it adds a delicious nutty, cheesy flavor. Add it to salads, casseroles, soups, popcorn, crackers and dips to experience all of its great health benefits.

  • Benefit by eating nutritional yeast as it contains 18 amino acids, making it a complete protein, as well as 15 different minerals. For those on a low cholesterol diet, vegetarians or those looking to boost protein levels, nutritional yeast makes a great addition or substitution to meats, dairy and other high fat proteins.

  • Enjoy a reduction in stress and a boost in nutrition by supplementing your diet with nutritional yeast. Yeast is rich in B-complex vitamins, the most common vitamin deficiencies, which among other great benefits, help to regulate mood. For greatest nutritional value, select a non-GMO nutritional yeast that is fortified with vitamin B12.

  • Use nutritional yeast if you are diabetic or borderline, as nutritional yeast contains chromium, a trace mineral known as the Glucose Tolerance Factor, or (GTF). If you have fluctuating blood sugar levels or a tendency towards low blood pressure, regular intake of nutritional yeast may help.

  • Substitute yeast in your recipes for healthier meals. Yeast sprinkled into soups creates a delicious creamy soup without the addition of milk or it can be used to top popcorn instead of butter and salt. Yeast mixed with vinegar and oil makes a delicious and healthy salad dressing or you can even sprinkle yeast on sandwiches to add a cheesy flavor.
