Yes, the stuff used to make beer, bread, and kombucha, but with a different end-product. Nutritional yeast is a primary-grown yeast, which means it is cultivated specifically for its nutritional value and not as a by-product or a means to another recipe.
Binding our minerals to this nutritional yeast makes it the closest thing to a natural food-form, which means the body can fully and easily absorb as much of the nutrient as needed. Ingredients that don’t utilize the benefits of yeast simply won’t do the trick. And don’t just take our word for it – ask science.
Unfortunately, there is quite a bit of misleading information regarding nutritional yeast and Candidiasis. However, the major difference between baker’s or brewer’s yeast is that nutritional yeast is inactive, so it has no leavening ability. In other words, it cannot reproduce inside of your body.
As with all Cypress Ingredient's inactive dry yeast products, the resulting chilled yeast cream is pasteurized through a high-temperature sterilization system which ensures inactivity of the yeast. This is the reason it meets or exceeds established human food-grade USDA microbial requirements.
