Nutritional Food Yeast - why we add it to our healthy soups

Inquiries are common about the use of Nutritional Food Yeast in our seasoning and soups.  The article below explains a little about Nutritional Food Yeast and why you may consider adding it to your diet. 

Nutritional Yeast

"Just the name of this ingredient will most likely cause you to instantaneously dismiss it. Nutritional yeast doesn't sound like something you want to willingly eat; and it doesn't sound like it could possibly contribute to a tasty meal. But despite your first reaction to this little known ingredient (outside of the vegetarian and vegan world, that is), you should know about nutritional yeast. Trust us, you'll want to buy it and eat it, and you'll most likely love it.

Nutritional yeast doesn't taste like yeast (you know, that strong, beer-like flavor). It comes in both powdered and flaked forms, and tastes nutty, cheesy and delightfully creamy. Many vegans use it as a cheese flavoring substitute, adding it to gravies, sauces, and mac n' cheese dishes. Vegetarians also take advantage of its great nutritional profile.

Nutritional yeast is an excellent source of protein, containing essential amino acids; it's full of vitamins, especially B-complex vitamins (and is often times fortified with vitamin B-12), and it's low in fat and sodium."
