Engevita is a vegan food with a cheesy, nutty taste.
It's made from primary inactive yeast, without any artificial additives or preservatives.
Don't confuse it with brewers yeast powder. That's a different product.Nutritional yeast like Engevita is a primary grown food crop. This means it's grown specifically as a nutritional supplement. It is a food yeast, grown on molasses.
Brewer's yeast is a by-product of the beer-making industry. To make it more confusing, because Brewer's Yeast is also rich in B vitamins, many health food stores sell it as a nutritional supplement next to nutritional
yeast. But Brewers Yeast has a rather bitter taste, and isn't as high in some nutrients as nutritional yeast.
Engevita, a pleasant tasting yeast, is so yummy it can be consumed as is. It's readily dissolved in water, milk, fruit or vegetable juices, and makes the ideal condiment to sprinkle on soups, lasagnes, pizzas, stews, casseroles, toppings, salads and breakfast cereals to enhance the flavour. (But add it after cooking, donât heat yeast.)
These yellow yeast flakes also make a sweet, cheesy flavouring or topping.Try mixing some Engevita flakes to mashed potatoes to add extra flavour.
These nutritional yeast flakes are great for nursing mothers, too, as they provide extra protein and Vitamin B, and lots of energy. Dr Elyane Brightlight advises that nursing mothers need to make absolutely sure
that they have enough calcium while breast-feeding. "So as well as yeast, she must take extra calcium daily - and eat yoghurt too", she says.
Engevita yeast flakes provide one of the richest natural sources of B-group vitaminsand trace elements.
