THE BENEFITS IN HEALTH
Nutritional yeast is a highly nutritious food, with a sufficient amount of protein and fiber while also having low calories and a very low percentage of fat.
It is an excellent source of B vitamins (B6 and B12), contains antioxidants, minerals and trace elements such as calcium, iron and potassium. It also contains β-glucan, a type of fiber that has been shown to help lower blood cholesterol levels.
In addition, due to its low glycemic index, it is a product that helps regulate blood sugar levels.
Research has also shown that fungal strains in dietary yeast can support the immune system and reduce inflammation from bacterial infections. It may also be helpful in treating diarrhea.
Dietary yeast is widely used by vegetarians and vegans. It is a product with a salty cheese taste, which is preferred mainly by those who do not consume cheese.
Two tablespoons (10g of product) contain more than 4g of protein, thus being an easy alternative for vegans to add protein, and in fact of high biological value, to their meals.
Its rich nutritional content makes it an excellent choice for those who follow a strict vegetarian diet (vegan) but also for those who try to reduce the consumption of animal products. However, it can be used in cooking in many vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes, such as in cases of fasting (where, for example, no cheese is consumed) or by those who may be intolerant to dairy products, but do not want to "leave" the taste of cheese.
HOW IS IT CONSUMED?
Nutritional yeast is, therefore, a salty product with an aftertaste of cheese and nuts. Apart from its cheesy taste, it also gives a special texture to the foods to which it is added.
