What is Nutritional yeast?
Nutritional yeast (sometimes referred to as “nooch”) is a species of yeast known as Saccharomyces cerevisiae, which is the same type of yeast that’s used to bake bread and brew beer.
However, nutritional yeast is an inactivated version, which means that, if you tried to use it to make bread or beer, it wouldn’t work well and would likely be too bitter to enjoy.
Comparison with other types of yeast
The three main types of yeast that come from S. cerevisiae are:
- Baker’s yeast. Baker’s yeast is used to leaven bread. The yeast is killed during cooking but imparts an earthy, yeasty flavor.
- Brewer’s yeast. Brewer’s yeast is used to brew beer. The dead yeast cells left over from the brewing process can be taken as a nutritional supplement, but they taste very bitter.
- Nutritional yeast. This version is grown specifically for use as a food product. The yeast cells are killed during manufacturing, which makes this yeast inactive. It’s used in cooking or as a seasoning, offering a savory or umami flavor.
It is a perfect blend to add to any dish and have this sutil taste of cheese.
