Do You Know How Nutritional Yeast is Made?

Our organic non-fortified nutritional yeast is derived from organic non-GMO primary yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. The fermentation has been carried out on either organic sugar beet or organic sugar cane molasses, both of which are used as raw material.

plant based protein

Our yeast is fermented in stainless steel tanks. The production is a closed system: we start with a pure culture which is then grown on organic molasses and on a nitrogen source.

After fermentation is done we use separators and water to wash the yeast from the molasses and the rest of the water. The flakes will then be dried and packaged.

What is the Difference Between Non Fortified Nutritional Yeast and Nutritional Yeast?

Non-fortified means there are no additives or synthetic vitamins added to the nutritional yeast to boost its nutritional value and vitamin content.

Be sure to always read everything on the package. Many products on the market are fortified with synthetic vitamins to increase the nutritional count. We have preferred to keep the nutritional yeast flakes the way they are naturally produced and all vitamins and minerals there are naturally occurring in yeast.

💡 Expert Tip:

This also means all these natural b vitamins are better absorbed by a human body, which is not always the case with synthetically added vitamins.
